A few goods from The Distillery District

Tuesday, September 08, 2009

I'm back from Toronto and I had a fabulous time there! The drive up was scenic and less painful than one would think, the wedding was gorgeous, and the shopping was spot-on. Unfortunately, I didn't get everything that I wanted but just enough to tempt me to go back to Toronto soon.

A few things we picked up at the Distillery District (yup we made it there!):


A beautifully designed tile by Sherry Richmond, available at Fawn Ceramics & Home - Their website is coming soon so join their Facebook group til then. I'm thinking of designing our future kitchen backsplash around this tile.


Hammocks & High Tea Rice Paper Drawer Liners purchased at Fawn Ceramics & Home.

I have to credit my mom for getting me hooked on paper drawer liners. She had put them in one of the wooden dressers in my old room and it literally gave that dresser new life. Which is why I couldn't pass up obtaining these rice paper ones. The chic design and cheery color of these of course caught my eye.


"Heath's View" by Rea Kelly

We came across Rea Kelly's booth during the Artisans at the Distillery outdoor show and were instantly drawn to her works. They're a mix of Klimt, Van Gogh, Matisse, and Cezanne all-in-one so of course we loved everything we saw. And the best part about her paintings are that they are very affordable. She offers quite a few pieces below $100 which is incredible for really good original art.


Blue Mister from the Vintage Gardener

I've always wanted one of these misters but just never found one I was compelled enough to buy. It must've been my lucky day cause this one is absolutely perfect! Great for in-house plants and flower arrangements.

While purchasing the mister, I was lucky enough to meet Canada's own, and soon-to-be NYC's, Ambrose Price. He is Canada's next Martha Stewart and has his own show with HGTV Canada called The Decorating Adventures of Ambrose Price, and will soon be appearing on LOGO TV October 5, 2009 in the US. And the answer is yes to those who are asking, I shamelessly told him about this blog and gave him the url. So, fingers crossed that he visits once in awhile. I think he might have once so far...

All-in-all, Toronto was great and I want to go back very soon since we didn't spend nearly as much time as I would've liked. If you're heading up there, let me know maybe I can catch a ride with you!
