we're back!







our ontario trip was so much fun! very, very busy but so much fun. it was so great to catch up with family and friends. we also spent a few days in toronto and were joined by my sister-in-law and brother-in-law. good times!!! lots of walking, lots of mac and cheese at the drake and some drinks were thrown in there too.
we saw an amazing surrealist exhibit at the AGO. it included painting, sculpture, jewelry and more, plus there was some incredible fabric by dali and miro.
i loved walking around queen street west and popping into so many great shops and small galleries. standouts for me were robber, magic pony (who had the coolest window display, see above) and the drake general store where i purchased the best ceramic garden gnome. thankfully he made it home in one piece.
now to catch up on my blog reading......

(a little late to the party) but love those art pieces inthe 2nd last image (of the flippers, manequin, etc) - are they all from the same artist, and if so, who? Love!
and thanks!

hi jan,
i know, aren't they great? i wish i knew who the artist was but i don't. i don't recall the little gallery being open in our few days there. or the name of the gallery. not much help i'm afraid!
