The Life in my Stilettos

Parisian pastries.

This is my new heaven.

I dare you to attempt one.

Finally Friday

Please sir, some cupcakes to go with my day?

Toronto’s very own Cupcake Shoppe.

Need it, want it, gotta have it.

Since my girl friend Mishk has been ranting on this week about my birthday in September… I have been allowing myself to do some online dress screen-shopping.
What do you think?  I think I need shoes now, don’t forget a clutch!

It’s not a diaper, it’s a wrap.

Yes, I made him do it.

Introducing … the male wrap for dogs.


This is supposed to aid in territorial marking and excitable accidents.  Has anyone tried these things before?  Too weird.  I’m just sick of cleaning up the mess.  And I refuse to cut his little balls off.

In my garden…

Three Raspberry bushes, two blueberry bushes, one blackberry bush.  One Gooseberry bush, and a Red Currant bush.  Concord Grapes have also found their way into the garden.  Two strawberry bushes, one hanging, and another buried deep into the soil.
Dozens of peppers are found in my garden.  Habañeros, Jalapeños, Cubañeros, Hungarian Wax, and Green Bell peppers.
Brandywine tomatoes litter the garden, some Cherry tomatoes and more Brandywine, due to a mishap at the nursery.  Growing beautifully are six Purple Cabbage plants, beautiful and purple.  Red onions, though I’m not sure what to make of those thus yet.  And a Big Max Pumpkin – which literally is BIG MAX.  Though the pumpkins themselves have not begun to grow.  One Honey Dew melon plant grows, and I think about the plants I will try to raise next summer, zucchini, green lettuce, spinach, watermelon, different types of herbs and spices in a window box…. definitely some regular tomatoes, and loads more.  I could easily be a farm girl.  Or a city girl – as long as I have some big pots for peppers and tomatoes and some beautiful flowers on my balcony.
