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

Fall is my undoubtedly my favourite season. Not too hot, not too cold - the perfect temperature for long walks and enjoying the changing colours of the leaves. The combination of the bright, low sun through our windows creates dancing shadows across furniture and onto the floors and walls. I find it so very beautiful that it forces me to take a moment and observe - which is very soothing in our busy lives! It really is a very magical time.
Disclaimer: Many of my items are vintage. 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, items do also deteriorate with age and it is up to the customer to decide how they will use each product.
