Listo Leads

Posted in antiquing by Allie on March 24, 2010


I have to admit, when I bought these from thornblossom I was calling them Listo Leads (LEEDS) even though I know they’re for China Markers (more correctly Grease Pencils, I guess), so lead (LED) would make much more sense, and in fact be–CORRECT. Either way, I just had to snatch them up before I wrote my Of Note dedicated to Manitoba, so y’all wouldn’t buy them up before I could.

I’m still not quite sure how I’m going to frame them, but I do believe I’ve settled on hanging them in the bathroom.

Sue also did such a beautiful job packaging everything that I had to document it. Tennyson! Scotland! Oh my!Untitled-1

Of Note: Manitoba

Posted in Of Note on Etsy by Allie on March 24, 2010


Manitoba, all I have to say is, you completely surprised me. You’ve charmed me. You’ve got the job.

1. Big Bold Teal Lucite Ring from Lemon Swirl Studios, Winnipeg, Manitoba. {I love bold rings. Lots to choose from here.}

2. Marty the Sock Monkey from a little indie boutique, Snow Lake, Manitoba.

3. Pig Kitchen Utensil Holder from Need or Want, Manitoba.

4. Lefty (also sells a righty) Walnut Coffee Scoop from Canadian Wood Crafts, Morden, Manitoba. {They also sell baby spoons, but I figured my childless readers might be tired of me posting baby stuff. A purple heart baby spoon would be awesome.}

5. Mexico Travel Rebound Journal from Prairie Peasant, Winnipeg, Manitoba.

6. White Stoneware Pottery Mug from Dooryard Pottery, Ile de Chenes, Manitoba. {chartreuse on the inside! my favourite colour!}

7. Shrugs and Hugs, Signature Shruggie from Obsequies, Whoville (?), Manitoba.

8. Bokz Button Back Lounge Chair from Lunar Lounge Design, Winnipeg, Manitoba. {Check out the loveseat! Gorgeous!}

9. Geeky Fox Oscillator Tie Tack or Pin from Periwinkle Dzyns, Winnipeg, Manitoba.  {Geeky stuff made into accessories!}

Next week, Ontario. Do I dare set a no Toronto challenge?

Happy Wednesday, peeps. Go have a muffin.
