Printed tea towels

I'm cross-eyed from number crunching... So, to wind down for the night, I did some online roaming and made a list of finds! I actually like doing dishes, especially as a way to warm up in the cold weather months. Weird, I know. Anyhow, here are some nice colourful hand printed tea towels to brighten up any kitchen!

Happy Hallowe'en

Hope everyone had a fun weekend! A., S. and I were Three Blind Mice named C, Howie and Run. For some reason, when you have dark shades on indoors and cannot make eye contact with anyone, you can be a complete goof. This picture is way too hilarious! Saw lots of great costumes last night. Amazing how creative people can get!

Tomorrow is November already... So much work to do! Back to my bookkeeping...

Bridal jewels for S.!

Many weeks before her wedding, S. came to me with an inspiration photo and we went from there to create a pearl (faux but fabulous) and crystal necklace with co-ordinating earrings. I was super happy, and I think S. was too, with how they turned out. I had never made anything like either the necklace or the earrings so it was great to experiment with new techniques. Then I made a lighter version of the set in purple-y silver for her dear sister to wear on the special day. I'm thinking I will add some variations of these styles to the MoonRox collection!


Hallowe'en is a couple days away and I have yet to dream up a costume. I spotted Clementine and Booh all dressed up on the Monster Factory Blog. Too funny in their ghost costumes trolling the scary streets!

Congrats to S. and S.!

On Friday, I attended the beautiful wedding of S. and S. It was at the Rosewater Room, which is a lovely space that is a combination of early 1900's style with the modern luxuries of today. The bride made her stunning gown and entire ensemble which was all unbelievable. Here are some snapshots of the scene.
On a side note, I have realized after attending two weddings this month, that my camera does not take good indoor photos, though it performs very well in natural light. So, many of these are from my phone. Time to amp up the camera search again.
Here I am enjoying the nice meal.
A great time was had by all! Congratulations to the newlyweds!

It's been a quiet week around these parts. Been a while since the last post! This week I've caught up with A. after her month long trip and got lost in some good quality work sessions. Trying to build up stock in preparation for the Holiday Season. Here are some miscellaneous pics from around town. Have a great weekend!

Apple picking

Today I went apple picking with Mrs. L-O. and her two little girls. I did get my apple picking fix after all. We had a lovely, yet chilly time out in the fresh air of the orchards. So nice to see some vivid Fall colours while we escaped the city. Got lots of pics with the camera and my new iPhone too. Hipstamatic is way too fun!

We came home with lots of apples! Think I will make an apple crumble or apple sauce! Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving weekend!
