I'm moving! Well, maybe. Possibly. In the Abstract future.

Friends, it's time to state the achingly obvious-  Blogger is old.  Like seriously, does anyone go here anymore?  I'm thinking it's getting time to seek greener, more grownup pastures and treat myself to my very own one-stop website with built-in blog, (Not my first, you understand, that would be this gem) shop and a tidy collection of social media links.

Anyway, when that happens, I'll let all of you know.  Currently, my plate is full with updating the old brand and prettying up my etsy shop\

Talk to you later!

Forgive the long silence. Sometimes life gets in the way of art, and sometimes, just living can burn massive amounts of energy, leaving precious little to create.  Anyway.

A Nineteenth Century Prison Repurposed

Lichen and Faded Marble: A Springtime Stroll Through The Toronto Necropolis

Hello Friends,

Yesterday I spent an enjoyable afternoon at the Royal Ontario Museum With my brother and young niece.  On the way home, My brother, all hepped up on history, had the idea of making a stop in Cabbagetown to show us the Historic Necropolis there.

I was very sorry to have just my old cell camera on hand, but Brother was kind enough to let me use his point-and-click, and so I got to take some pictures.  Being drawn to texture and having more than a little morbidity in my blood,  I simply had to document some of the visuals for later reference.  I haven't been to many cemetaries  but I was struck by the eroded and broken state of  the older markers.   Many had not only fallen over, but been long broken in half and trampled right into the ground.  Many were worn almost completely smooth.   

I know modern burial practices prefer granite for markers, but there is something so beautiful about the softness and  fragility of marble headstones.    Images after the jump.

Upcoming Event: Bazaar of The Bizarre- Frostbite (Dec 15)

 Saturday's ging to be quite an event, friends!  Come on down to  918 Bathurst St, where I'll be running a booth.  As a special treat, Erin from Erchin: Handmade Awesome will be offering up her wild hats.  As is our custom when working together, we have combined our name to All Things Awesome.  Come by if you are downtown!

I gotta say, I am super pumped for this venue- it looks wild.  They have everything from Dog fashion, to handmade organic oils, to corsets and That is saying nothing about the entertainment.  I really think this will be the place to shop forthose friends with exotic tastes, or even something for yourself.

Cheers friends!

Busy Weekend- Upcoming events (December 8 +9)

Hi Friends,

It's another busy weekend with two shows going on Saturday and Sunday.  

Saturday I'll be participating as a vendor at the Parkdale Winter Fair at Parkdale Public School from 10 to 1 PM.  The school is located on 78 Seafourth  at Seaforth and Langdown.  There is a Green P close by and plenty of street parking.  Come out and say hi!

As for Sunday,  I have already blogged about The Sassy Winter Craft Show at The Central (603 Markham Street, Toronto) in a previous post.  This is just a reminder for those of you who might like to do some shopping if you're in the area.  I've been a busy making lots of new things, most which aren't on Etsy yet, so if you're in the market for stylin' accessories for a unique friend, well, you'll just have to find out in person!

Until next time, Friends in Fibre

Why hello again, Friends,

I almost didn't hear you over the roar of neurons firing in my brain box.
You see, in an attempt to preempt the Annual Winter Hibernation, I am trying lots of new things to keep up my energy level.
