thirty-five cents

Our big purchase this weekend: retro drink glasses. Great for summer cocktails on the balcony and only thirty-five cents each from my favourite Sarnia treasure palace, the Salvation Army.

Kitchen wish list

Barefoot Contessa, Ina Garten shares her kitchen essentials. I've added a couple of her must haves to my own wish list.



Sarnia-based singer-songwriter Court Lajoie sang me into work this a.m. A friend introduced me to Court during an event at a downtown bookstore during May's First Friday event. A voice with lots of potential.


Beauty in the a.m.

On my walk to work on this perfect spring day, grape hyacinths in gardens galore.


Goal: Bake homemade sweetness once a week

Homemade sweetness. Satisfy cravings. Save money. Avoid preservatives. Consume fresh goodness. Indulge. 

Inspired by Cup of Jo's post on the taste bud infused Bake or Break blog, I'm considering a weekly goal of whipping and stirring up homemade sweetness for the future husband and our friends to enjoy. 


Wish list

On my spring wish list is the Sun Rise Nectar necklace from Anthropologie. Would make a perfect accent to the navy dress I'm wearing to a June wedding in Ottawa.
