Some fun press!

Through Etsy, found some of my goodies to feature in the "High Notes" section of their 9/30 edition.  The section highlights a variety of stationery and paper goods as well as the lost art of the hand written note.  I'm honored to be included!

Quebec City :: Window Boxes

Over Labor Day weekend, we visited Quebec City for the first time.  What a fabulous city!  We were instantly taken with its charm, wonderful food and very friendly people.  I was able to use some of my very basic French, but most people spoke English.  They certainly did appreciate when you made the effort.

We toured the hilly, cobblestoned city by foot, taking in the historic sites, amazing views, charming architecture and awe-inspiring window boxes.  They seemed to be on every building and were so well taken care of.  (They put mine to shame!)  My favorite inspiration was an Italian restaurant that had herbs growing in their boxes.  I am definitely doing that next year, what a great idea.
