Winner - Misikko Corioliss Classic Flat Iron! AND some scary strawberry news.

And we have a winner for the flat iron!
A big congratulations to Jenn, and a hint to my readers to check out her blog, Beautiful Calling - she has a giveaway on now and looks like some awesome ones coming up!

Hope you had fun with this one - stick around, I've got good stuff coming up. I know I've been a little off radar for the last little bit, but I'm coming back around. A lot of stuff's been happening around here and it's a whole new ball game taking care of a house and a dog without my husband around.

OH, and I recommend reading this article about strawberries - scary stuff. I'm all about buying local when I can, but those lovely strawberries from California are so enticing in the middle of a Canadian winter. I know now I'll be looking for the organic label or passing them by. If strawberries equal miscarriages, thyroid disease, neurotoxins and cancer, no thanks.

This summer we got a number of strawberries from our 18 organic plants (they're currently flowering towards a second crop - love everbearing!). I had intended to buy some at the local farm, but they were going for $25 a flat! Pricey! Usually we will buy a ton, wash and top them then freeze them in a single layer on a cookie sheet, and bag them once frozen. Frozen strawberries are pretty and delicious instead of ice cubes in summer drinks, perfect in smoothies, or thawed over ice cream.


  1. That is me! Thanks so much for the plug, the win and the heads up about the berries....eeek!

  2. I never thought to use frozen strawberries as ice cubes. What a good idea!
