A whole bunch of awesome local crafters are clearing out their stashes to sell at thrifty prices, at the Workroom this Sunday. You may know that my craft shelf is a bit out of control, and so you might imagine that my fellow crafters also have a penchant for buying too many craft supplies on a whim or when they see a dreamy fabric or yarn and imagine a zillion possibilities for projects, or rounding up all sorts of collectables from yard sales from here to Montreal. Now is the time to take advantage of their (my) regrets. There will be a lot of good stuff: all sorts of craft supplies and vintage wares including (but not limited to) paper ephemera, vintage dresses, handprinted fabric remnant packs, buttons, findings, jewellery supplies, vintage fabrics, yarns & more!

It’s true. As a child I didn’t love all vegetables, there were some for which I had a particular disdain, like onions. Now I can’t say I LOVE onions, but I don’t hate them. As a vegetarian, I think it’s important for me to eat all vegetables.
Living here in the “South” – relatively anyway, I grew up in the Yukon – I relish going to farmer’s markets and buying super fresh produce and baked goods. I just moved to a new apartment in a new neighbourhood, and I’ll be close to the Sorauren Park Farmer’s Market, yay!
Now that the municipal workers strike is on, I won’t be dashing down to City Hall for the regular Wednesday Farmers Market. However, I went a few weeks ago and took some shots of delicious veggies in the bright sunlight.
I apologize for the relative silence on this blog these days, but as some of you may know I moved and had a job interview and I’m helping my friend get a few things ready for her wedding this Friday.
By popular demand! actually only requested by Craig, but maybe others will appreciate my photos…
Since it is almost summer, I thought I’d remind us a bit of winter so we can appreciate the warm weather.
The next 2 are taken with the Lomo Fisheye camera, the first is in Toronto on Dovercourt Road, and the second is in the Yukon, at Jackson Lake just outside of Whitehorse.
It’s true. I’ve taken a zillion (plus or minus a billion) photos in my life. I had supportive parents who allowed me to take photos with their film camera since I was about three years old. Maybe when I go home this summer I’ll dig around and find some of these old shots and scan them.
You can see on the right here <—– links to my flickr account. Right now the most recent photos are those I’ve taken of products for my etsy shop, but if you dig around, there are a few gems like this photo I took of a duplex on my old street, Palmerston. I was surprised to see it used as the photo for this article in Torontoist on loud neighbours.
Then, this photo was also used, but now I can’t find the link! I think it was used by the DesignExchange for some online thing…
And this is one of my favourite most recent photos, a magnolia blossom.
