pieces of love @ magpie jewellery

26th April 2013

This upcoming weekend in my Ottawa hood, one of my absolute favourite jewellery stores – Magpie Jewellery – is hosting the final weekend of their bridal month. I actually had my own engagement ring designed and by the lovely folks at Magpie. It was a great experience from start to finish, and ever since I have bought the occasional bauble (or hinted at Dan to!), to add to my collection.

For their grand finale weekend, they asked to use some of the vintage items from my Pieces of Love business, and of course I was only too thrilled to be a part of the event. We setup a little vignette, and dotted a few other pieces around the store.

The bridal month events are coming  to an end with Megan Thorne. Magpie is the only store in Canada that carries her pieces and they are thrilled to host her first show in Canada! Megan will be at Magpie in Westboro on Saturday from 11-5 and at the Glebe store on Sunday from 11-5.

Magpie (the Westboro location) is really a gorgeous store – lots of white, glass, beautiful light fixtures and high ceilings – all setting off the beautiful jewellery pretty perfectly. DSC_0876

Victoire and White Elephant are showcasing some vintage wedding gowns at the event. I browsed through them last night and there are some seriously fun dresses at great prices. One of these short dresses would be perfect for the reception/dancing part of the wedding (if you wanted to wear a long, more formal dress for the actual wedding). The lace and detail work is pretty spectacular on these retro frocks.

*FYI – I was not compensated in any way to promote Magpie Jewellery. I just love the store and was super excited to be a part of their finale wedding weekend!*

What are you guys doing this weekend? Any big plans? Getting out the garden or doing some garage organizing now that the weather is warming up? We’ve got a couple of house projects on the “to do” list — including getting started on a little someone’s nursery!!

    I love Magpie, too. When we first moved to Ottawa we lived in Old Ottawa South, and I worked in the Glebe just down from the Magpie store. It was dangerous because I’d walk by it on the way home and more times than not I’d end up buying something. I’m a necklace addict.

    We also got our wedding rings from Magpie. I didn’t realize, however, that the store does custom rings.

      So dangerous!! Haha. Luckily I don’t walk by the store everyday, but at least once/weekend… serious self-restraint needed! :)
