401 Richmond Street, Toronto

401 Richmond St., Toronto
September 16, 2017

For family bonding one September afternoon, the son brought hubby and me to 401 Richmond Street in Toronto. The building is a restored, heritage designated, industrial turned arts-and-culture hub in downtown Toronto.  Very interesting place to visit with one-of-a-kind shops, galleries and offices.

Building's "atrium"

Outside looking very ordinary.

The only photos I took inside the building. It could be a bike store, a design store, a paint store. 
My apologies to the owner - I should have taken the name. 

Found some one of a kind books and gifts at Swipe Design Books + Objects  and also at Spacing Store.

Check them out here 401 Richmond Street, Toronto or visit the place.

Big in Toronto

Toronto, September 2017

Like freshly cut roses,
I place life in a vase...
Of love.

if you carry a big cup, a small cup or a thimble!

This one is not big though - but cute. I just liked the rounded legs here.

September Fun

After all that December 2017 and holiday postings it is time to continue my 2017 randomness and chatter.

Mixed photos taken during the Toronto International Film Festival in September 2017.

The colorful, high and steep Scotiabank escalator. 

Tickets and movies.

December 2017 - Part 3

A totally unplanned outing with 2 unlikely partners. 
December 15, 2017

First Port Perry. Visited the town's Gingerbread Village at the library.

Walking by the lakeside.

Some window shopping

And then good food at Piano Cafe.

Despite the snow, we moved to Uxbridge.
Window shopping and some photo op.

Later we drove to Newmarket and capped the outing with crepes at CrepeStar Dessert Cafe & Bistro.

Another December 2017 memory for posterity.
