Retro Saturday


This is the last installment for my 'Give-Away' contest which ends next weekend. So, if you haven't already, now's your chance to use that imagination of yours and enter the contest.


Today's feature is the AMOS PEWTER  (click) company. They have been making things from pewter since the mid 1970's here in Nova Scotia.


Where they are located on the south shore of Nova Scotia in Mahone Bay is quite special. 


It is a very picturesque little village nestled around a bay. It is a destination, in the summertime, for locals and tourists alike.

So in this very inspirational setting AMOS PEWTER is made. And you could have a piece of this work for your own if you 'create' a story/limerick/poem using the 'billboards' as your source of inspiration.


So to get started, CLICK HERE....you have ONE MORE WEEK!

  1. We have a cute little town nearby that has three churches in a row like that one shown above too.
    Funny thing about them is they are name St.Peter, St.Paul and St.Mary. (It's true, I'm not making that up and they are in that order too)
    I'm still putting the final touches on my entry.

  2. I lived in Toronto for a while and really wished I had have made it to see Nova Scotia before heading back to Australia- all the photos I see of it are amazing.

  4. Lovely, lovely place!

    Pewter... I have 3 bricks in my craft cabinet, I had such lovely ideas for them and then it was suggested that I would probably burn myself because of shaky hands. I had to agree. So they sit there for me to look at. I can't let go of the desire, maybe someday someone will make the cabinet knobs that I had wanted to make...

    I hope the night went well!
