One Of A Kind Show Review

Hello everyone, I hope your week is going well!  For those of you who missed my post yesterday; I was at the One Of A Kind Show for the Media Breakfast, and needless to say it was fantastic!  I'll get straight into the goods and share my top five picks {in no particular order}...

1.  Porcelaines Bousquet - Booth G-11

This Artisan named Louise started her pottery studio in 1975 and her main goal was to create something white.  Well, that she certainly did.  I absolutely fell in love with so many of her pieces as they are crisp, clean, and classically contemporary - perfect!

2. C comme CA - Booth K-40

These cases and covers {for electronics} are so very unique and sleek that they had my love at hello!  Not to mention that the Artisan Cindy chose to make them out of felt which is a sustainable product made from wool or recycled materials, so the fact that it's green made me even happier.  How cute would my iPod, or MacBook look in one of these babies?

3.  Jenna Rose - Booth H-04

The lovely Jenna began her textile studio in Guelph {which is where I grew up, no wonder I liked her} and my heavens I am happy she did - her pieces are so very beautiful!  Jenna illustrates each design by hand, and screen prints them using non-toxic pigments on all natural and organic materials... A girl after my own heart.  

4.  Hanna V. Art - Booth M-47

The bright, bold, and fun photography by Michele Viner caught my eye immediately as I walked by!  The food images are photographed on a white background, which really allows their colour and texture to pop.  Delightful pieces for any foodie or any kitchen!

5.  Scout & Catalogue - Booth N-26

Last on the list, but first in my heart {and potentially very bad for my wallet} is Scout & Catalogue, accessories by Breanna Musgrove.  Where do I start?  I adore these pieces, but my favorite line that she has would have to be from her "Scavenger Hunt" collection, which are bags made from fabric items found at thrift stores that are upcycled into gorgeousness - holy eco-wonderful batman!

Well, there you have it, my review of the show.  I did not purchase anything, but I will be back over the weekend to make some purchases - I'm going to behave myself and only get a couple of items.  What will I be buying you ask?  I'll be sure to share them with you when I decide, but I can guarantee I will be visiting Scout & Catalogue and Jenna Rose.

The show is on until April 3rd at the Direct Energy Centre - you can find all the details HERE.  I recommend you visit the show, it's a great way to spend an afternoon with girlfriends and really help to get your creative juices flowing - I'm now dying to create something, thank goodness my upholstery class is today!
