Another Vintage Clothing Show

Yesterday, i made my way to the Gadsden’s Vintage Clothing Show which was held in the Wychwood Barnes in Toronto, a new venue for the show. IMG_0687IMG_0688
The above two photographs were taken in Adeline of Whitby’s booth. I always enjoy her oh-so-feminine mix of clothing and lace items.IMG_0692
I can’t resist a show display especially when the shoes are displayed in a vintage suitcase.IMG_0696
These vibrant button bracelets are handmade by Joanna Syrokomla.
Her colour combinations and button assortments are just lovely.
The bracelets can be found through Ian Drummond of Ian Drummond Collection.IMG_0698 IMG_0699 IMG_0703
Part of the fun of the show, is people watching and admiring how gorgeous the vintage items look when worn.

From my perspective, the show was a success in the new location. It was my first visit to the Wychwood Barns and I hope to return soon for other shows.

Collecting Cat Parts

This week I came across this photograph from this photographer on Etsy –                        instant love:cat

Don’t you just want to pet those fuzzy paws? I found them on The Paris Apartment.

My friend, Cynthia, has a few posts on Cynful Musings about the four kittens in her care.

Here’s another post from Cynthia – you gotta watch the Engineer’s Guide to Cats video she posted – it’s worth it.
We already have two cats, I’m trying to resist adding a third one to the mix!

Cruise Travel Journal

As promised, I’m showing pages from my recently completed cruise journal. I made daily notes on the ship but didn’t do up the layouts until I got back home. It’s probably more work to do it this way, but it works for me.  Next trip though, I’ll probably try a different method.











--- enjoy!

Paper Bag Gift Bags

In the current issue of Somerset Life (at the top of my list of favourite magazines), I fell in love with the Paper Bag Gift Bags by Roben-Marie Smith.

I just had to make a couple. Instead of using them for gift bags, I made one a perfect size to hold my little Moleskin notebook and the other is big enough to hold class notes 8 1/2 by 11 inches.  I love them.  IMG_0662

Look at the mess I made in the process -

It’s pretty much tidied up now though – I want to do some rubber stamping next.

I wasn’t happy with the smaller bag so I revamped it and added a button – now I love it!
