April 28, 2012


This is one of my very favourite trends that's developing in our neighbourhood: people creating gardens on both sides of their sidewalk. Some of them are so developed that you literally feel like you're walking through a garden path. It is absolutely delightful.


Nothing says spring like gorgeous pink of a crab apple tree; and they blossom and are over so quickly each year - just as fast as spring in Toronto comes and goes. Which means by the time this is up, it will likely feel like summer!

Under Our Willow Tree


Once again life intervened this week and I had to move Crafty Thursday to Friday. I didn't have much time but I did add some finishing touches to my cupcakes for my clock. Next Reg and I have to drill a hole into the back of the clock. We are not sure the bit we have will work. I hope so! I really want to put it together and have it on my kitchen wall.

Wow, I've never seen a garden like that Jamie! I will have to keep my eyes open for one because they look totally awesome.

Your cupcake clock looks like it's coming along beautifully Suzie, and way to go for making craftyness on Friday when Thursday didn't work for ya!

I think any space that can be beautified like that is so special! I love it!

Shannon, I miss the crab apple blossoms. You guys are way ahead of us. We got snow yesterday. Our magnolia tree is looking pretty but she is opening up late this year.

Thank you Shannon! I am pretty thrilled with how the cupcakes are coming. I just hope the arms of the clock can go over them without stopping!
