Taking in the festive sights and sounds around the city :D
Last week a friend and I made it to the Christmas market at the Distillery, but it was really cold! I think it was ‑20℃ with windchill. But everything was so pretty and magical. I managed to take a few blurry pictures.
And there was a giant Christmas tree!
This past weekend I went to the City of Craft show. The organizers are the best at festive decorating! I can only imagine how much work (and love) went into cutting out these paper rabbits.
And they make lovely shadows…
All the vendors were amazing, my friend and I were ooh-ing and ahh-ing at every booth. And the wonderful thing about the internet is that you, too, can visit these shops even if you couldn’t come to the show! :D I especially love the absolutely adorable miniature animals by Jenny Wren, I wonder if she would sell the lovely necklaces displayed at the show when her shop reopens, there was this fuzzy squirrel with a mushroom sitting in a tiny bell jar pendant!! And the super cute needle-felted animals by Lesley-Ann Green! Her business card has a really cute and kind-looking fox on the back, I propped it up on my desk and it makes me smile every time I look at it. It’s going to help me get through all the papers in the winter term I think.
Hope you have a cheerful day!
