Today was a grand day for gallavanting. Sunny and hot. I slept in and landed at Rebecca’s Restaurant at 1300. My favorite destination for lunch in Mahone Bay. The menu is always refreshing. I had Sweet Potato soup, Shrimp and mushroom Risotto cakes with a side salad and for dessert traditional Nova Scotia Strawberry Shortcake. It was made with the best tea biscuit I’ve had since my grandmother’s for sure. The new location is brillant. On Edgewater Street, it has loads of parking and seating.
Right Next door there is a newly opened shop, called Sprig Apothecary, it literally had at all my favourite things for sale. Succulents, lotions, beautifying products, and pretty little pots. So I added a little succulent to my growing indoor garden and some beauty products to pamper myself. It was fun, like a day at the spa, my style.
Down the way I stopped at Have A Yarn, and found some new color ways. It’s a new company RavensWood Fibre Co. A local company!
Another new shop on Main is a sweet little interior design shop. Here Nor There. I picked up a seagrass basket, and a macrama plant holder. The plant holder I’ve been ages waiting for and it’s perfect.
I dropped in to Birdsall-Worthington Pottery for a gander and found beautiful hand made earrings.
Finally ended up at Peacocks Antiques and found some awesome vintage clothing, stay tuned for those outfits. Including a perfect birthday dress for July.
Look at this beautiful head of cabbage from my farm share…
So proud! It tastes good!
I’m quite proud of these tarts. Local raspberries from our Taproot CSA farm share. I might have had a few…
Such a beautiful squash from my Taproot CSA farm share…such a simple recipe rice, local cranberries, with cheese. I’m going to try ricotta cheese next time.
Wish I could share!
I just wanted to share what I’m making with my CSA farm share today…such beautiful local foods…
I started a new project last week. “My Icelandic Sweater”.
I’m using Mineville wool project Yarn wool blend for this project. A Nova Scotian company. Yay!
