Tin House Designs #OOAKX11

I found a great, unique art piece to add to my home. Framed oxidized tin tiles from TinHouse Designs are amazing. Tyler Kilkenny the artist behind these amazing pieces has brought together history, texture, beauty and uniqueness all in one place. They are so many sizes, designs and colors to these tiles, it was so hard for me to pick just one from many many variations. After visiting TinHouse’s booth at OOAKX11, I was ready to pick my favorite design and here it is. I love the gradual hue changes on this tile, its beautiful.

I Found My Brunch At #OOAKX11

Last week I took a day to visit the Christmas edition of One of a Kind Show and I went a bit food crazy! This morning I decided to have my favorite thing for brunch/breakfast, Smoked salmon, cream cheese and rye bread topped with diced garlic scapes…..YUM! I never had even heard of scapes till few days ago when I stopped by The Garlic Box‘s booth at the OOAK show. This is a perfect mixture of garlic & scapes, making it great for pretty much anything; burgers, dressings and anything else you would use capers for. Add some delicious smoked salmon from Canadian select, cream cheese on top of a rye bread and taa daaa…. Who wouldn’t wanna eat a beautiful and tasty smoked salmon sandwich.   Solmaz

One Of A Kind Show: Christmas 2011

It’s that time of the year when amazing artisans come together under one roof at The One of a Kind Show. This is my second time attending the Christmas show and I love it!Everything is decorated for the season and lots of great gift ideas for the loved ones. I spent an entire day at the show on Thursday and picked up lots of great one of a kind goods. This time around I was mostly in the market for great food items and some art pieces. I’m going to write a post on all the fun stuff I picked out at the show very soon. Mean time checkout the official website for One of a Kind Show to learn more about the artists and buy tickets to attend the show. Trust me, you wont regret it! Solmaz ps. I’ll be back at the show next week to see the second round of artisans after the mid show switch happens. EXCITING!
