Coal and Canary is ready to fly

I love that Winnipeg is full of creative entrepreneurs. The other beauty about it is that when something local gets started, our very supportive Peg city folks normally like to give a new, more public emergence the benefit of the doubt. We help it hit the ground running & these ideas & new local features get their chance to fly.

I expect for Coal and Canary’s handmade & delectable sounding candles, there will be soaring.

With names such as “gimmie some sugar’, ‘the cider made me do it’ & ‘chunky knit sweater’, these seasonally titled wax jars of joy make me excited to light my first one & burn it until they (hopefully) surprise us with their next weather inspired scents! In the meantime this one below may help me curb the upcoming & always dreaded holiday padding….by that I mean pounds. Our winters are very cold & we need a little extra to survive…right?

Visit their site to learn more about the products and the creators, Tom & Amanda. The name already has a hint of wings to it. It just needs the lift. Of course all of these wonderful photos by Brittany Mahood Photography help show the elegant sweetness of the candles too.

3 different types of love

Every wedding has a different style, but the way that they are photographed also effects the memories. Soft and delicate, natural and clear or lightened and hazed, the list is endless. Here are a few of my favourite ones right now.
