Fairy houses

Spring flowers and buds on trees are coming and legend says with them our little fairy fiends. I know, beacuse my little girl keeps talking about them all the time. She is starting to plan her garden for the fairies. Legend says that if she builds a fairy house in the spring that fairies will come and live in it.

Fairy Cupcakes : Sugared flowers

fairycupcakefrontOur school has a bake sale tomorrow, and I’m making some fairy cupcakes for the sale. Hopefully they will be success for both fairies and parents. I’m using edible flowers as décor on lemon cupcakes. In this recipe I’m using pansies but nasturtiums and violets will also work.

Algonquin and family camping tool kit

Algonquin, Our home away from home


Guest blog  Melodie Percy

Its' safe to say that when it comes to camping in Ontario, I'm completely biased. From the age of two my family, aunts, uncles and grandparents included, loaded up our cars and headed up to Algonquin Park. We did it a few times a year, even winter but my favourite time was always our end of summer trip during the last three weeks of August. The importance of connecting with nature and being in tune with the universal rhythm was instilled at a young age and has become part of who I am. Now as a mom of three myself, I share this with my own children.
