Last summer we had the good fortune of spending a few days in Boston, MA to do a bit of sightseeing, shopping and eating well. I looked up some of the most highly recommended restaurants ahead of time and one of them was the Flour Bakery. It didn’t disappoint. It had all the charm and character you would want in a neighbourhood bakery/cafe. Plus a completely decadent assortment of baked goods and yummy beverages to go with them.

February is the new January. That’s what I’ve decided this year. I don’t know about you but it’s taken most of the month to wrap my head around the fact that it’s a new year, and I’ve been delaying making goals and plans for 2016. It took me more than New Year’s Eve to say goodbye to 2015 and start 2016.

So a sad thing has happened in our neighbourhood over the past couple of years. An invasive species called Emerald Ash Borer has either killed or made sick all of the ash trees. All. Which is a lot of trees, considering our neighbourhood bears the name Ashgrove.

First of all I just have to say thanks to everyone for their sweet feedback on my last post To Blog or Not to Blog. As one friend mentioned, maybe it resonates with all of us, that we need to take stock once in a while of the stuff we work hard at, remember why we’re doing it, and make sure that it’s still important. Then either keep on keeping on, or switch directions and work hard at something new.

Well, I’ve decided it’s a valid question since I haven't published a post since the end of November! ... and so far no big welcome to the new year from me with goals and resolutions, or even a top-ten from last year list. So what’s up?

A pretty package of homemade candied citrus peel makes a stress-free and thoughtful gift from your kitchen. The recipe is forgiving and the end result looks festive. What could be better for Christmas gift-giving?

Ornamental corn in one of the prettiest elements of fall decor. Simply arranged in a cylinder vase tied with rustic twine keeps the corn contained but still highlights the beautiful colours and shapes of the cobs and husks.
