Little Big Helper


...murine slice cleaner. I know it does not look like much but this box of stainless steel is magical!

Treasure Found



Don Mayers
Painting & Decorating
Stirling, On
Feb 4 , 1917

New gyprock

Our house does have lots of soul.

Btw, when do you "renew" plaster walls? 30 years?
Longer?... is the house really 1880, as we were told?
1860, as the street sign claims?
sure is NOT 1924 as the property tax document states.

Paper again

Yip, scraping wallpaper 24 feet high.
...it is just too hot to be slaving over molten glass.

New Kitchen Gadget


Acquired at the show, to continue my collection.
Mushroom keeper.
Fresh "like new" condition mushrooms? No problem!
Unspoiled garlic two months later? Spreadable butter?
You name it.

Thank you Muskoka!


Truly my MOST favorite show of the season.
I had a great time, sold out of all my froggies.
Drive back home was a breeze.
Thank you everyone for stopping bye!
Love summer.

Studio visitor



I know. So tini, just a baby... Had to call help to the rescue.
Back to the garden he goes, just so the cat can bring him right back in. Oh lordy.
