I almost forgot to post about the 2009 One of a Kind Show in Toronto!  Silly me! 

So, last Wednesday I took the GO train into the big city to meet up with Carol & Kathie.  Awaiting us was a show of soooo many wonderful things!  I don't have deep pockets, but I have a deep imagination and it was ignited from all of the creativity and ingenious work that we found at this show.

~ a stash of OFAK info and contacts for artisans I loved!~

~I picked up this journal made out of an old Spanish text book.  You not believe all of the neat-o books Margi Laurin offered!~

~Inside the journal...blank pages off-set by the original Spanish text...~

~ Sister Sister Buttons is awesome!!  I also bought one for my grandfather..."I Love Scrabble"!~

~I had been on the hunt for a wallet, but this deep coin purse made from salvaged Army surplus does just the trick.  You can find more creations like this at Jack & Marjorie.~

And last but not least, I found the more spectacular mittens.  I failed to take a photo for you, but here is Sarah Lynn Ottewell's etsy store: SLO.  Sarah Lynn makes the coolest upcycled clothing and accessories.
