Although I had hoped to get this posted yesterday, this morning I’ve got a little summary of my weekend which was unexpectedly busy, but in a good way. My brother Blake ended up being here for the weekend as he is attending a course in the GTA this week, so we got a little impromptu sibling time which was great! Although he has been to Toronto many times, he hasn’t been since he was a kid, and this is actually his first visit to Toronto since I’ve lived here, so kind of a big deal.
On Saturday, we did lots of walking around and, although it’s not exactly his thing, my bro was nice enough to go with me to the Etsy Made in Canada pop-up Market at the Mars building. It was packed, so it was a little hard to see everything but I did get to see my friend (and hair colourist!) Lauren at her booth with her stunning jewelry line called Her Pretty Bird. Her Etsy shop is undergoing a revamp at the moment but if you want to check out some of her work head to this giveaway post I did last year. I’m loving all the brass and pyrite pieces she has right now…..
I also purchased this little cloth container from Kempton Jones. Sure, it’s a cute container with a cool graphic but the amazing part is that this is a digital print of an ACTUAL sound wave! This one is the sound of someone drinking (slurping) coffee, but she had tons of others, like the sound waves of purring cats, cooking bacon and popping popcorn. I so love innovative ideas. She has various fabric items to choose from like small makeup pouches, tea towels as well as containers like mine below. You should check our her shop Kempton Jones, here.
Then my (imaginary) boyfriend, Seth Meyers (former of SNL and most recently his late night gig), was in town for Just for Laughs, so I obviously had to go see his show. So. Freakin’. Funny. I mean I knew he’d be funny but I was literally laughing for the entire time he was on. The only weird part of the night was that my so-called boyfriend didn’t get me complimentary front row tickets. I think he might be seeing (marrying) other people. Le Sigh.
Then on Sunday my brother and I hit up the last Blue Jays game of the season. Sadly they lost, but it was a gorgeous day at the Rogers Centre. A perfect day to take in a ballgame.
All in all a pretty great time. How did you enjoy the lovely weekend we had?
