Toronto Recap 2013

I'm back!  Well...I've been back for a few weeks but I am just getting around to blogging about my trip ;)

So...it wasn't as fabulous as I thought.  Toronto apparently is not my place.  I still tried to make the most of it though and focused on having the best time possible.

Warning...if you don't like looking at other people's travel photos...this post probably isn't for you...

Skyscraper architecture




Distillery, St Lawrence Market, Chinatown

I don't have too many photos from the Distillery - most of the shops don't allow photos - grrrr

 
 
 

 



Church architecture & stained glass



 
 

Well hello there :)







Allan Gardens
 
 
 
 
 






Niagara Falls
I last visited the falls when I was 17 - I just love it there.  If you've read the blog for a while you know I absolutely love all waterfalls.
 

 


 

 
CN Tower

 


 
This is when you realize you are [for sure] afraid of heights...


Casa Loma
 
 
 
 



 


 


 
Random Shots
 
 


 

 
 
Treasure Hunting
 
Phew...you still with me??  Here are my finds/purchases from my trip.  I found the adorable little sauce bowls in Chinatown, I think they'll be great for jewelry.  I bought a lot of cute little accessories at Indigo - a bookstore chain in Canada.  They ship to the US (I found out when I got home - after I loaded up and had to strategically pack :/) 
 

 
 
The majority of the clothes I bought were from Anthropologie...which is just silly because I have a store about 10 minutes from my house and could have saved all the taxes - but hey shopping is my therapy :)
 




 
The mitt is also from Anthropologie and the antique tea strainer I found on Etsy while in Canada so I think it still counts ;)
 
I was looking forward to watching my favorite designers on TV while in Canada (since we get all of the shows months and months later in the US)...well my hotel didn't have HGTV Canada...what the... so I did the next best thing and loaded up on design mags :)  Have you heard Domino is coming back quarterly??
 
 
I also found some amazing beads while in Canada...paid a ridiculous amount of money for these so I'll have to make some really spectacular necklaces. 
 

 
Stay tuned this week...when I got back in the states I spent a day out in Hagerstown antiquing and found some great treasures...I'm talking I dashed for one item like someone was going to fight me for it (just try!)
 
Also - if you follow me on Instagram (@alisa_miller511) - you may have seen a sneak peek of a new project I'm working on - a desk for my office!  It's in the ugly stage right now where I hate it and think the project is the biggest waste of time and money...looking forward to turning the corner ;)
 
Have a great week!
