Shop: One of A Kind Online


As far as I'm concerned, this is pretty big news. I might have mentioned before that the ladies of On Crawford St. are huge fans of the One of A Kind Show, and our only sadness is that it happens only once a year. Today, I got an email that turned my day around. One of A Kind will launch their new online store! Now I know there are some really great websites to buy handmade already (Etsy, you know I love you), but my love for the bi-annual show prompted me to sign up to be one of the first to shop the new online shop. Just in case you share my enthusiasm, here's the link to get your very own invite!

Ps. Above is one of my favourite One of A Kind show purchases!

Food and Drink: Elderflower Spritz



On the first Sunday in April, J and I took a long afternoon stroll in the bright, spring sunshine. We meandered our way south from Little Italy, through the park - Trinity Bellwoods, naturally - and west across Queen Street into Parkdale.

What We Read: Bridal Blogs


Since getting engaged last November, J and I have thrown ourselves headfirst into wedding planning. We've discussed colour schemes, met with florists and decor companies and scouted possible locations for an engagement photo shoot. Before getting engaged, I never gave a second thought to all the little details that go into planning a wedding. There are tons of options and the potential to be overwhelmed is very real. A number of my “Mrs” friends suggested that I gather ideas from wedding blogs. I started with the usual suspects; Weddingbells, 100 Layer Cake, Wedluxe and The Wedding Co. While these were a great place to start, I soon realized that my style was a little different… slightly quirky, you could say. I decided to dive a little further into the world of wedding blogs and carve out a list of favourites.

Food and Drink: Apple Galette with Butterscotch Whiskey Sauce and Cinnamon Walnut Streusel


Today we’re talking about Galette, a fancy French word for free-form tarts. These rustic pies can be large or individually sized, sweet or savoury and made with any filling you can imagine. Plus, they are ridiculously easy to make; you don’t need a pie plate or any special gadgets. This Galette would be perfect for dessert, served warm with vanilla ice cream, or as part of brunch.
