I love a good hair accessory. All the hairbands and bows will make your eyes pop:
Most of the pieces are one-of-a-kind, and made by local artisans. These little crocheted shawls and dresses are beautiful.
There is also a lovely selection of jewelry for mummies, as well as a party room, loot bag service and sewing classes. Embella Party Supplies and Giftware is located at 647 The Queensway in Etobicoke. Rosie :)
Vilma is a former journalist who lives in New York City. She handcrafts each lamp from scratch, and each one is unique and absolutely stunning. The way the light is reflected by each hand-painted square of coffee filter is amazing. I love how all the colours light up when you turn it on, and I love how it is one-of-a-kind. Thanks Vilma!

Owner Olenka uses the highest quality all-natural ingredients to bake her brownies, truffles, chocolate bars and other goodies. She bakes several times a day and everything is so fresh. You can taste how pure everything is. There is also ice cream available, with a fun selection of sugar cones.

They have been working on The Legwarmers for a very long time (it's based on their live dance production by the same name, which they co-wrote and choreographed) and to see this labour of love now a beautifully published book is pretty amazing. They are dance teachers and choreographers who are passionate about teaching dance to kids. No one know how to light up a room like they do. Or, the front entrance of a Chapters at their recent book launch.
If you would like to purchase an autographed copy of The Legwarmers, get over to Pick of the Crop Toys and Books in Oakville this Saturday December 8th at noon where the girls will be plie-ing around the store. And if you would like to order a book online, visit The Legwarmers official website. Rosie :)
