Roxie Green Fringe Vintage Glass

This vibrant pair of earrings is made by Jennifer from Winnipeg-based ToxieDesigns. In case you were wondering, Toxie is Jennifer's nickname for the Amazonian warrior and archer Toxaris. She has handcrafted these earrings out of Argentium Silver and included vintage glass beads as part of the simple and elegant design.

Oh Canada! Treasury Challenge

Congratulations go out to IGBijoux, this week's winner in the treasury challenge with her "The Girl Behind the Green Door Got a Letter." Can't wait to see the collections IGBijoux's treasure trove of a shop inspires!



To enter this week's challenge, you must:

* use an item from IGBijoux in the top row of your collection

* post the link to your treasury in the comment section of this blog by midnight (Ottawa time) Friday, December 2, 2011. If your treasury link isn’t here, your treasury isn’t entered in the challenge.

* use 5 more Oh, Canada team members in the top three rows. Incorporate as many team members as you like, but there must be at least 6 team members in the top three rows to qualify for the challenge.

* tag your treasury with octchallenge and ohcanadateam. This is essential for providing the judges with one stop browsing.

* invite others to play and provide a link to the blog challenge. Just because it’d be cool to have guest players ;-)

Judging -- how about you? Not into the treasury making thang, or just want to sit back for a bit? Please, be a narrow down judge, to help whittle the list of entries down to manageable size for voting. Be one of the first three folks to volunteer in the comment section of this blog and take on this important role. Since treasuries should not include an item from your own shop(s), challenge winners are cordially invited, but never expected, to help narrow down entries.

Friday Finds: Drawstring Bag for Knitting Project by zigzagstitches

Bigger Drawstring Bag

'Tis the season to be knitting, fa la la la la...!
And zigzagstitches has just the accessory to keep all your knitting in an organized fashion. The padded drawstring bag comes in a variety of fun fabrics and has room for lots of yarn, needles and patterns. I especially like the fact that the padding prevents the needles from poking through. Check out more items from this wonderful shop!

Friday Finds: Icewalk by ljangphotography

"Icewalk" by 

ljangphotography

This glorious picture of Maligne Canyon, at Jasper National Park Alberta was shot by Larry of ljangphotography. Taking avail of a rare opportunity to actually walk below in the canyon (which isn't possible during summer as the water thunders down as a waterfall), the viewer can see how the water here has frozen in time, up close and personal. The walls of the canyon are 50 feet high and it must be breathtaking to do the walk on the riverbed during winter. It's now on my bucket list! Larry has done a brilliant job of letting you almost experience it yourself!
See more of his stunning photography here.

Friday Finds: Labradorite & Sterling Statement Ring by LeChienNoirJewelry

Labradorite Sterling Statement Ring

This ring is a beautiful homage to Canada, made by Carla of LeChienNoirJewelry. Labradorite (named after Labrador, Canada where it is mined) has a gorgeous iridescence. Depending on how the light hits it, you will see a shimmer of grey, blue, black, silver and sometimes even orange. This cabochon's beauty is highlighted by the handmade oxidized sterling silver bezel. For more statement pieces please visit her Etsy store LeChienNoirJewelry.
