April 5, 2010 of 365 : night time at the workroom
When the lights go out just before I go home at night, this is what the workroom looks like. I love the blue glow off the little neon sign and the street car zooming by.
I’m catching up with posting my 365 photos from April. This month has thrown me for a loop! Rather than continue to post every single photo here, I’m going to start posting just my favourites to the blog. You’ll still be able to follow all the photos on flickr. I want to get back to posting more crafty stuff.
Ayalah asked me the other day where I shop for shoes in Toronto. I had to pause and think for a minute because I do my serious shoe shopping when I go to New York. My answer in the end was Value Village. It’s definitely not something you can count on, but if you are persistent, the twentieth time you check the shoe section you’ll find a gem pair in your size. After I snapped up these vintage tan lovelies at Village des Valeurs on Monday, I ran smack into this ‘just arrived today’ pair of grey/neon runners at Stolen Riches on Queen. I did not even hesitate. When you average the cost of both pairs together, it just makes practical sense. Do you have these clever rationalizations too?
