Pleasures

Jenga! Gone rogue.

I just loved this idea… and had to share; especially for those of you who are DIYers! Which, I am NOT. :( So here’s hoping someone gets the hint and steals my Jenga set soon! Here’s how… to paint the set. Not steal the set.

Something lovely for you

I came across this little bee… and it dawned on me that embroidery is such a beautiful art. Something my mom knows how to do very well. And my grandmothers too. And I’m sure my great grandmother before her. When I was a little girl, these women taught me how to sew, embroider, crochet and knit (to name just a few).

Yes, you may be in parts of this country (or another northern country) where winter lasts 8 months out of the year and snow is just snow and you just move on because it’s winter and that’s that. But us downtown Torontonians pride ourselves in geographical anomalies… we’re …Read More
