November

Another month has come and gone. We are reminiscing on some of our favourite things and moments in November! Danielle Travel This one is easy.

Inspiration for decorating your home or apartment with pumpkins and mini gourds! If you’ve read our blog recently you’ll know that we love apples. We really love all of our amazing local fruits and vegetables, including the squash and pumpkins of fall! What is so great about pumpkins and the adorable mini gourds all over local farms is that they make wonderful home décor. We are huge fans of decorating with nature, and these “winter squash” are bright, colourful, sometimes…

Our 10 favourites ways to enjoy, cook and bake with fresh, local apples – autumn’s best fruit! “An apple a day keeps the doctor away” – said someone, who like us, loves apples! And we literally could eat an apple a day and never grow tired of how humbly this fruit is sweet, juicy and crispy at the same time. Like most tree fruit, apples are loaded with flavour, but what makes them so special is there is a kind of…

FALL MARKETS AND FARMS IN ANCASTER

October 5, 2015
Pumpkin Markets and Farms

Three must see local markets, orchards and farms to visit in Ancaster during the fall months. Every fall I have to make some customary trips in and around Hamilton, mostly close to home in Ancaster. I especially like making these trips with Mike, and I especially like making these trips on an empty stomach. That is because most of these places are about food and the wonderful all harvest! There is something about the fall farm and market and I…

September Favourites

Favourite moments and things from the month of September 2015! Danielle Travel Earlier in September Mike and I headed to a Blue Jays game in Toronto for his birthday. We didn’t have much time beforehand for food and drinks, but we managed to find time at a trusty Toronto favourite of ours, Gabby’s on King Street West. We enjoyed a pitcher of ShockTop and some nachos before heading over to the game. Sadly the Jays lost, but they are having…

Autumn Porch Decorations

Decorating the outside of your home for fall while on a budget This past weekend I finally had the opportunity to start putting up some fall decorations. I’m totally one of those people who walks into HomeSense, and my eyes just light up! The fall decor there is off the charts – candles, glitter pumpkins, wreaths and more wreaths, potpourri, and lots of little room accent pieces. One thing I try to do is stay away from glitter (except for…

I’m pretty sure that Autumn is every knitter’s favourite season. The cooler weather means sweaters and hats and scarves! Accompanied with yummy baked goods and a cup of tea. Such a perfect season. I’ve knit two sweaters in the last year, with my third almost complete, and this month is the start of the fall sweater knit-along at my local yarn shop, so I will soon have a fourth to add into my rotation. September is the month when companies…
