weekend in a nutshell

i went to a shoe museum…

bata shoe museum toronto

which was as fabulous as it sounds. that is, if you like shoes. and museums. (one big checkmark next to each of those for me, please.)

and i popped into a bright little yarn store which i’ve heard a lot about over the past few years…

i hope to write more about both of those things. but first, i need to go through about 200 photos of shoes taken in strange lighting through glass boxes. museums are nightmarish places for photography…

    Ooooo, is that Lettuce Knit? It looks like it’s in a newer/different location that when I was there many years ago now. Delightful. I lived in TO for a couple of years and never made it to the shoe museum. Regretfully. Looking forward to the photos.

    I LOVED the Bata!!! Was there last summer and really enjoyed looking at shoes throughout history and of all the different cultures. Was so much fun. Glad to know someone else enjoyed it too. :)

    Happy Monday.

    Sounds like an awesome weekend.
    Never been to the Bata though. my bad.
    I don’t think there’s anything better than strolling around and checking out your favourite places in TO. Awesome stuff ;)

    Beautiful photos already! Good luck sorting through the chaos of photos. It can be the longest part of writing a review sometimes, picking the perfect photos!
