It’s that time of year again – the One of a Kind Show has taken over the Enercare Center in downtown Toronto. The One of a Kind Show (or OOAK Show) is an amazing opportunity to snag artisanal crafts that are thoughtfully made with love. There are so many fabulous handmade finds that you could quite easily finish your Christmas shopping in one place.

The Christmas count down is on! Officially 29 days and counting until the big day. Jess and I are making our lists and checking it twice. We’ve got a bunch of people to treat this year, from family to friends to secret Santas. I absolutely LOVE hunting for the perfect gifts for my loved ones – the payoff on Christmas morning is the best feeling ever. I’ve popped a few of my favourite finds below to help on your hunt this holiday (and maybe to add to your list to Santa this year)!
We’ve shared our love for Coriander Girl on the blog before. Hands down our favourite florist in Toronto, Coriander Girl is the Toronto flower shoppe to get all floral needs done. If you’re thinking about going somewhere else, don’t. The lovely ladies at Coriander Girl are especially known for their hand-tied bouquets and stunning textured centrepieces at weddings. When Coriander Girl invited us to join in their Spring Garden Plant Arrangement Workshop we were thrilled! Just in time for Mother’s Day, Coriander Girl is putting together beautiful planters that mom is going to adore, and they asked us to share them with our T&C readers! Even better, these planters can last for months and mom will think of you every time she sees these beautiful blooms!
I’m so excited for this blogpost because it’s our inaugural DIY post – Yippee! Jess and I don’t consider ourselves super crafty but we do have a few good ideas rattling around for DIY’s that are cute, simple and quick. Perfect for when you get in a crafty artsy mood. Today, we’re sharing an easy way to spruce up ugly plastic planters that come with cheapie flowers or herbs. We love picking up flowers or herbs but we hate the plain containers. We found a super simple way to transform plain plastic or terra cotta containers into pretty braided clay planters in 45 minutes!
Valentine’s Day is upon us once again! Hurrah! For most ladies (and gents) with a special someone, Valentine’s Day matters. The fact that V-Day matters really isn’t debatable my darlings. For some, February 14th is just another day, but for others, Valentine’s Day is the best day of the year to say “I love you” in a special way.
I’m always thrilled when I get a housewarming invitation. Finding a dream place that’s just right is a slog to be honest. It means late night showings bouncing around the City and not only having to find the perfect neighbourhood but also the perfect piece of real estate. BUT once the papers are signed, the moving truck has left and the boxes are starting to get unpacked, you finally have a chance to just fall in love with your home. Whether it’s the floor to ceiling windows, the vintage wood floors, the beautiful trim, or the breathtaking views, it’s time to be house proud and celebrate with friends!
