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 the bright, low sun and deliciously cool breezes through the windows create dancing shadows across furniture and onto the floors and walls.
I find Autumn to be so very beautiful that I am forced to take a moment and observe and contemplate this natural death of the season of Summer, the impending approach of Winter's sleep, before the cycle begins anew in Spring. It really is a very magical time.

Disclaimer: Many of my items are vintage or pre-loved. Please be aware that vintage items will vary with the manufacturing methods available at the time of their production. They are not made at the current standards of manufacturing ... and in my opinion, that is a good thing! They are generally an exceedingly higher quality than today's manufactured items, last much longer and have more attention to detail. However, safety standards do change over time, vintage and pre-loved items do deteriorate with age, and it is up to the customer to decide how they will use each product purchased.
