Mementos of Toronto

I've been looking for the perfect pair off glovelettes for ages!  I just couldn't find a pair that called to me until now.  I found this pair designed in Toronto at Kensington Market. this neighborhood filled with local art, amazing restaurants and a laid back attitude reminds me a lot of the Hawthorne neighborhood and is such a fun place to visit.  I wish I could have spent more time there this trip.

In the Distillery District, I bought this urchin glass ring directly from the artist at Tank.  She had a wonderful studio set up and I even got to watch her do some lamp work.  It's interesting that she buys all of her glass from Bullseye which we are so blessed to have in Portland.

I love find things to remember my travels.  It's even better when I can buy local goods and support artists in the areas I'm visiting.
