Etsy Made in Canada

I have just returned from another fabulous 10 days of Hiking the Highlands of Cape Breton just in time for my first show of the Fall season.   

Etsy, the online market for vendors of hand made goods is holding its first  ETSY: Made in Canada  show in venues across Canada this Saturday, September 27.  I will be taking part at the Ottawa venue - at the Bell Sensplex in Kanata from 9 to 4 pm.   We have 154 artisans registered for the show.   Here are two links with further details.

It will be a treat to meet some of the local Etsy sellers.   Hope you can make the show!!

I am still on a high since returning from my hiking trip to Cape Breton.  I took tons of photos and hiked every day for 9 days - oh my aching calves! We renewed old friendships and made new friends.  It was wonderful!

 We had a great hiking experience and hated to leave.    We almost didn't leave since our plane had engine trouble and we were grounded overnight in torrential rains in Halifax.   We took that as a sign from above.   We were meant to stay:))

  1. II can hardly believe it as I write this, but it has been 30 some years since I was last in Cape Breton. I'd been there several times and even did my first teaching up there in a 3 room school house, boarding in a wood stove heated house that sat right on the trail in Pleasant Bay. The highlands are spectacular.
    I took my husband there for a visit while pregnant with my eldest child. It holds many fond memories for me.
    What a wonderful place to hike.
