Burlington Guide at Design Sponge 

Published May 21, 2009 at 2:56 p.m.

Some readers might have made the acquaintance of Paige Russell when she lived in Burlington--for about 5 years--and worked at The Lamp Shop on Pine Street. She's back in her hometown of Kelowna, British Columbia and apparently yearns to return here--which, her former boss Liz Segal hopes, might be possible with something called an "exceptional person" visa. Who knew?

Anyway, Paige turns up this week as a guest blogger on Design Sponge writing a fondly reminiscent guide to Burlington, which is filled with snapshot profiles, with photos, of her favorite spots. Most of them are either on the Church Street Marketplace or along the Pine Street Corridor, including Pine Street Art Works, Four Corners of the Earth Deli and, of course, The Lamp Shop. Design Sponge is the creation of Brooklyn-based designer-writer Grace Bonney. Along with her guest bloggers she offers all kinds of tips about design, primarily stuff for the home. My favorite feature: annotated 'before and after'  photos of decorating projects that transform thrift-shop rejects into cool, one-of-a-kind pieces of furniture.

A ceramic artist with a degree in product design from Pratt, Paige has her own blog and website, too. But check out the Burlington bit on Design Sponge--part one of two--and add your own comments on the Queen City!
