*** I found the oven temp a bit too low .....but we all know our own ovens.
Also great cold, lasts for a week, feeds at least 8.
Not content with having a fractured shoulder I managed to break my nose as well.
I stumbled over the pavement outside Dutch Dreams.
When my old man returned the next day to photograph the scene of the accident the city truck was already there, spraying several parts of the sidewalk bright orange.
I look like a prize boxer.
I had been out at a couple of thrift stores with my granddaughter who lives in England. She has a great eye, wish I had photographed the Doc Martins, hand knitted Cowichan style sweaters, Roots duffle coat and more that she scored. But she has gone up to Lake Temagami to be a camp councillor for the summer.
The neighborhood garage sale took place this weekend.The weather was just right , the organizers did a stellar job and the streets were thronging.
I could not participate this year because of my fractured shoulder, goodness knows I have enough stuff to sell.
In a fit of pique I stayed home and sulked.
However, I took some photos of my footstool!! that I have had for many, many years.
It has the original art nouveau chenille upholstery.
The bench is very ' springy' which make it a magnet for small people ( that would be you, Oliver) to jump on. As well, it is useful for grown up feet, rear ends, plates, newspapers and so on.
Consequently the fabric is wearing thin.
Should I make a cover to preserve the original fabric or just enjoy as is? WWYD?
A friend was coerced into groping the back of a cupboard to pull out these shoe boxes of lacy bits......I had not forgotten them, just never got around to retrieving them.
I can cope with light pieces of lace and have enjoyed sorting, grouping and listing this week.
Would feel better if I were not so bloody fed up with etsy and their constant tests. I realize that only a small portion of buyers and sellers are involved, but this latest test of 'hiding' shipping costs until checkout is pissing me off.
The 'shipping and policies' tab is still there, if a potential customer clicked on, saw no shipping prices , they would conclude I was unprofessional or lazy or dishonest. Canada Post shipping is high enough as it is, I don't need this roadblock as well.
If anyone has a moment, could they click on one of my shops and let me know if my shipping prices are showing
I have a passion for vintage textiles, I even have a degree in printed and embroidered textiles (many decades ago), and I still find them intriguing! I hope to be able to share my thrift stores and market finds from all over the world. Toronto has been my home for 45 years.
Where to find me
