Did you know if you lay an apple on its side and cut it in half, a beautiful five-pointed star is revealed? My mother showed me this trick when I was little. It's fun to show to children for the first time ... and is still my favourite way to cut an apple!

Fall is without a doubt my favourite season. Not too hot, not too cold - the perfect temperature for long walks and enjoying the brilliant colours of the changing leaves. The combination of bright, low sunshine and deliciously cool breezes entering through open windows and creating dancing shadows onto walls, floors and across furniture is soothing to the soul.
I find Autumn to be so very beautiful that I am forced to take a moment to observe and contemplate this natural death of Summer and the impending approach of Winter's sleep; before the cycle begins anew in Spring. It really is a very magical time.

Disclaimer: Many of the items sold are vintage or pre-loved. Quality of vintage items vary with the manufacturing methods available at the time of production. They are not made to current standards of manufacturing ... and in my opinion, that is usually a good thing! They tend to be higher quality, last longer and include more attention to detail that today's products. However, safety standards do change over time, items do deteriorate with age, and it is up to the customer to decide how they will use each product.
