Both sister stores Workshop Studio & Boutique and Flock have been re-stocked! You'll find the usual selection of our popular hair pins and stud earrings (lots of new ones) as well as a selection of pieces from the Fall/Winter 2011 Collection. Pictured above, clockwise from top left, are the Direction Earrings, Pointed Earrings, Sprinkles Loop Earrings and Links Earrings.
Hope you are having a spooky evening... Here are some quick snaps from the celebrations on the weekend. On Saturday, A. and I drove a big cube van up north to move some of her stuff to her mom's and rolled back into town in time to meet up with S. and S. for the evening.
We all had a really busy week, so time was too short to craft extravagant costumes, thus the dollar store was our best pal. Bit sad considering we are usually creative folk... We still had fun with it. Everyone likes a funny hat! Entertained ourselves laughing at both the comments on the backs of our speech bubbles and our low-to-no effort to dress-up.
Had a good time at W.'s party. Saw some excellent get-ups. Check out those robot costumes. Both were equipped with lights. The 'bot on the left even has a drink holder with extend-a-straw. Pretty impressive.
Crazy week of work and trying to catch up with a few friends. Sad that one of my best friends will be leaving for a year if not longer in a few days! I'm so happy for A. and the opportunity she's been given! But, we'll have to make sure we make the most of these next few days before she departs! Hallowe'en weekend... better whip up a costume!
It's another rainy day here is Toronto. Not sure if I am still recovering from last weekend that seemed to begin on Thursday and never end... or if it's just the weather making me want to hibernate. I'm pleased as punch to be sitting inside cozy and dry, working on an order, on pieces for One of a Kind and blogging! The travel posts are done with! Let's talk about jewellery!
On our way home, we flew out of Copenhagen via Reykjavik again. Here are lots of amazing overhead views from the plane.
Halfway through the flight and one Ashton Kutcher movie down, I opened up the window just in time to see the icy caps, bergs and floes of the southern tip of Greenland. It was breathtaking and these blurry window pictures don't do it any justice. I was all googley-eyed staring out the window at a terrain that I sure do not see too often...
Endless sheets of ice...
And then the familiar landscape of home...
I think this is a quarry. But what do I know?! Looked interesting and the colours reminded me of the Blue Lagoon.
Yonge Street buildings and the Toronto skyline ahead. Home again.
There ended our trip. Nice to travel with my Sis and see such beautiful places.
Bear with me! The travel blogging is almost over and we'll be back to our regular programming here! These are snapshots of our last day of travel. We visited the Dansk Design Centre which walked us through a few rooms of iconic Danish pieces.
Grabbed a nice big pot of tea and browsed the gift shop before walking over to Vesterbro.
Passed Central Station on our way.
We felt so relieved to be in an area that was not swarming with tourists. Vesterbro was a great neighbourhood with so many excellent independent retailers housed in pretty old buildings. I much prefer these areas.
We loved our afternoon in Vesterbro. In the eve we walked back to near our hotel to grab some dinner and to get ready for our return home the next day. In hindsight, our itinerary should have been flipped. We wished we had gone to Denmark before Iceland as it was a small let down to be in an urban centre of any kind after the high of seeing such amazing natural wonders. We still had a great time in Copenhagen. We only had a short time and had no real plan and it was kind of nice. Mostly we walked and poked around shops, I know... and skipped the tourist requirements like visiting the mermaid and such. Is that bad? Felt like this was a good way to get a quick feel of the city and the design excellence the country is famous for. We'll have to return one day to see some more!
