With the success of the first pair of Mausi’s Big Butt Pants (here), I thought I’d get right to work and make another version from a pair of Papa’s old cords and some fabric left over from a hooded jacket currently in the works as well. I hemmed these ones to […]
Yes, that’s right, that’s exactly what this is!
I’ve always said that cockroaches were the one creepy crawlie I really didn’t like. So much so, that I’m embarrassed to admit that I found it difficult to even give the creature the respect it is due…afterall it has survived countless millenia and is one […]

The vernal equinox has come and gone and spring is officially here. Somewhere along the line a memo got lost and we woke up, on this 3rd day of spring, to another several inches of fresh snow on the ground, and more falling. And I saw snow drops blooming just yesterday!
Undeterred, we’ve […]
Mausi’s papa and I enjoyed a wonderful evening together this past Saturday. After spending the afternoon in the ‘big city’ with Mausi, we dropped her off with a couple of friends (thanks again Uncle J and E) and headed off to the gorgeously constructed Koerner Hall at the Royal Conservatory of Music to see the […]

I was thoroughly enchanted when I came across the artwork at Periwinkle Sky! The delicate watercolour paintings are filled with fairies, children, flowers, little animals and plent of magic in scenes from the woods, garden and under the sea!
With such wonderful attention to […]
Sixteen months of dedicated babywearing and we finally thought that perhaps, for some excursions, it may be time to think about a stroller. That’s not entirely true…I started thinking about one 2 months ago, but it wasn’t until this past week that I located the exact one we wanted on kijiji.
Don’t mistake me, I […]
