Welcome home 

My mother’s china has been packed in a box for 27 years. 

I have taken it with me from city to city, to nine different homes, but have never had the cabinet space to display it. 

Well, today it sees the light!

Isn’t it beautiful? 

After all those moves, I unwrapped each piece with some trepidation, but only one was broken. 

It somehow seems fitting.

Shells on the shelf

An update on my recent pasta post

Those stylin’ shells have been spied on the shelves!

The pasta packaging without compare was on display in a grocery store in Toronto.

Thanks for the pic! (I’ll take one of each.)

As a fettuccine head who works hard every day to be more spaghettoni,  this packaging speaks to me.

I am also hungry.


Chelsea Market has displayed fabric wings on one interior wall so tourists can fancy themselves real photographers.


Works for us locals,  too.

Chew on this

dental glasses

You know you want ’em…and you can buy ’em!

But you have to floss them every day, so plan accordingly.

Color me skeptical

Pantone, the leading authority on color and color trends, just announced the Color of the Year for 2016.

There are two: Rose Quartz and Serenity.

Pantone says these shades reflect society’s ‘search for peace and tranquility.’

I think someone on the selection committee is having a baby.
