I’m feeling a little guilt about some online shopping I’ve done lately, but not enough to want to take back either of these “commit to buy” clicks.
Both are from the same place – Kelly Clark of Umber Dove Studios. She’s a painter and a silversmith and on top of that, a flat-out pleasure to [...]
No secret around here that I love me some Canadiana, particularly when park-related.
A few weeks ago, I bought a custom order from Kelly Clark of Umber Dove Studios and asked for a ring that riffed on the old-school Parks Canada logo. We had some back and forth about design and stone and sha-zaam! It [...]
I tried to take a photo of a pair of custom earrings I’m shipping out today but the light was gone by the time I finished and the picture turned out sub-par.
Instead, here is Jess‘s much-better-lit photo of her tasty Garden Window Co. loose leaf tea – a little extra I’m now sending out [...]
Whoa, who feels like shopping? Head down to James Street North tonight for the Art Crawl and go wild – even if you only buy a drink or a new pen, there’s plenty to see and do besides spending!
Or, if you’re not lucky enough to be able to hit Hamilton this evening, here are [...]
I made a treasury on Etsy today.
You can see the whole thing here.
I know Christmas just happened, but I’m late with my list…
The Camper Satchel from Sketchbook. If these were a clothing line equivalent of this bag, I’d wear it every day. I imagine it would include stuff like…
This Madewell shirt. Worn with jeans and a jean jacket, so you could [...]
I finished a raven’s feather cuff yesterday, but not quite enough to photograph so you’ll have to take my word for it until Monday (unless I happen to make it to the studio this afternoon, though…today’s slate of writing commitments does not bode well for that happening).
Can I introduce you to some of my [...]
So I’ve been racking up Etsy buys over the last few months.
Well…not really. But I have gotten a couple new things I lo-lo-lo-lo-lo-love. Wanna see?
First off is this pair of winter boots from Fox and Fawns.
I know I’ve rattled on about my search for the perfect winter coat, but have I ever [...]
Coincidence that on the same night I was busy planning a summer cycling trip (from Amsterdam to Jena, or Hamilton to Thunder Bay?), my randonee straps were featured on Etsy’s front page:
Along with a ton of other amazing bike-centric goods. I especially love the Bike Signal Shirt from Eloi Collective and the Porter Crate [...]
After a four(ish)-month moratorium on buying new things from Etsy, I recently picked up a custom dress from Montreal’s Lalouka.
Amazing. I want to wear it every day.
And, would you believe this? Looking for random Canadiana, I found this pillow case – perfectly in line with my current collection of leather cuffs…
