Another trip to Montreal yeilded inspirations...

Great display and merchandising were again noted. This shopping center's back to school theme was highlighted by using school and office products as accessories on the mannequins.

Note the binder clip used as hair barettes... and push pins form a choker.

A planet theme graced this window - including an orb cleverly passing through the window. A closer look revealed the cracked effect was accomplished with glue from a hot glue gun. What a great trick and an attention - getter.

No trip is complete without a couple of meals at Saloon. Try it, you'll like it!

J and Kel were joined on their trip by none other than Dr. Jim DelPrince.


Inspiration can be found in street bricks. Or from a selection of beautiful gardens in the city - above and below.



And we move from gardens to incredible sculptures...



And taking time to observe details and shape.

And time for some coffee as well. As you can see, a fun time was had by all.
