Soup’s On!

So… it is cold out.  The weather is all over the place – hot, hot, hot like summer last week – then blistery cold winter temperatures this week.  Where did fall go?  I am all too happy to snuggle up on the sofa, throw a blanket over me and marathon my latest obsession on Netflix.  Add a cup of soup in there for good measure and I have my ideal evening.  Lee and I have been discussing getting some new soup bowls – thought I’d check out Etsy (as usual).  Below are 10 cool soup related things (made in / sourced from Canada) I came across… dreaming of cheddar biscuits and creamy soups all day long 😉 Stay warm friends!

Ben and Lily – Scandinavian Design Soup Bowls- Toronto, ON

The warm brown accented with the pop of turquoise is right up my ally!  Think of all the yummy french onion soups you can prepare over the winter with these bad boys!

KalikaBowlbyPottery – Peach & White Bowls – Nelson, BC

Simply elegant and modern.  I can see these hosting a variety of broth based soups from kale and legume to a classic minestrone.

Whistle and Work – shy soup bowl – Toronto, ON

Charming little bowl I would personally use while watching vintage black and white movies. It has a very audrey Hepburn feel.  I wonder what her favourite soup was?

HandmadesRovena – Nerd Get Well Soon Chicken Noodle Card – Toronto, ON

This makes me feel like I should have paid more attention in science class.  Regardless of my lack of molecular knowledge I think this card is pretty cute!

DazzlingDezignz4U – Hand Stamped Soup Spoon – Windsor, ON

I want a spoon with the types of soup I eat stamped into it. For example: butternut squash.  I would eat chicken noodle soup with the butternut squash spoon. Just because I can.

Parceline – Lace Pattern Porcelain Bowl – Montreal, QC

Very pretty, granny chic bowls – perfect for a girls afternoon filled with stitching and most importantly bitching.

oharahale – Soup Cat Poster – Montreal, QC

One of my favourite posters I have come across as of late.  Cats… soup…Warhol inspired? YES on all fronts.  Meow.

 Lots Of Wood – Hand Carved Spoons – Kawartha Lakes, ON

How beautiful are these?  This picture is particularly stunning.  I want to collect spoons now.

AJmetissage – Small porcelain bowls – Montreal, QC

I like these for their subtle pop of colour.  This company makes a juicer that Is stunning – but I was looking for soup things – these fit the bill wonderfully.

A must have for every college dorm room (and young at heart kitchens) everywhere.
