Park Day

Last Monday afternoon brought blazing Spring sunshine here in the Cowichan Valley, so my little family took a trip to Centennial Park in Duncan to soak in the rays. There’s a water park within the playground next to the community gardens and courts, so we brought our bathing suits and towels just in case the water […]

Brandi’s Sushi Spring Rolls

So the girls at the studio think I’m some kind of food guru or something.  I am nothing of the sort, but will admit that I am a little overly obsessive when it comes to food preparation.  At the studio, it’s sort of an unspoken rule that when an occasion arises, be it birthdays or […]

Little Onion

My bedside table is, most of the time filled with some random stuff. Some books, hand cream,  massage oil from Weleda (I love the brand) and some rescue cream. This week though, I had to add a few more little helpers…. those handy dandy things in times of a bad cold and crazy headache. I never, […]

Thamar, we share the same love of the humble toilet paper roll :) I used to keep one in my stroller for school drop off and pick up…always handy!

My mum used to use the cut onion when we had a cold and you’ve just reminded me!! Thank you~ such a great way to sleep better when you are sick.

Hope you are now feeling much better!! Take care.

Hi Tanya and Erin,
I feel much better now, thanks… no toiletrolls and onions
next to my bed anymore….
And like Erin said, eating the onion after the good night of sleep, not such a good idea ;)you might end up being sick again.

How lovely a bio and blog entry. Jes, I so enjoy the sweet frocks that keep these dolls so innocent looking and appreciate the cuffs and small details. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and endeavours on living in a way that leaves a smaller footprint. I, too, enjoy reading how others go about doing this. It is inspiring and every small change is significant, I am coming to believe. Hmmm…
I need to purchase less dolls and less frocks perhaps than I have in the last month :), but Bamboletta as a company feels like the right place to splurge every now and again.

I love learning more about the lovely ladies who sew all the gorgeous frocks! This sounds like a perfect pairing. I wish I had this talent!!
