IMM living x Russet & Empire

I really like how it opens on a shot of my tattoo, makes me feel like a real badass.

Plus some bonus 'behind the scenes' photos for you exclusive insiders!

Ange-line and Michael who interviewed me/designed most of the stuff we sell at the shop
The reason why I couldn't keep a straight face the whole time, obviously

Hey amigos! Here is the reason I have been neglecting literally everything including the blog:

The Junction Flea! It's basically going to be the best thing that ever happened to the city of Toronto as far as I'm concerned!  New craft and design, food, records, antiques, furniture, clothes, all awesome all the time! We also in the proccess of looking for vendors, and I have a feeling that a lot of the people who follow this blog might be of the creative/vintage hoarding persuasion...No more driving to the country for a deal! Ride your bike on up to the Junction and hit up the Flea every second Sunday of the month. Then come to Russet and Empire doye. Aaaaanyway, go HERE for the deets.      XOXO R&E

Vases+last leg flowers

I bought a bunch of ranunculus on the way to work because they were so pretty and so inexpensive.  You know why they were so inexpensive? Because they were basically rotten and I was too much of a dummy to realize...for the record I did ask the lady why so cheap, she told me I was getting a deal. Beware of deals. Unless I give you one, you and I are tight so of course I'll cut you a deal man. Anything for you <3

Annnnnyway so today we are featuring vases  because I had to photograph the flowers before they went to shit.

 Swedish crystal bulb vase $47
 Swedish glass pinch necked vase $17
Best glazed pottery $48
