I have been fluttering here and there trying to decide where this blog was headed or even to keep it going. Last Tuesday, marked my 2 month “summer leave” and although, I thought about the blog often, it has been an amazing feeling to just shut down the computer and walk away. I feel that my priorities have shifted in the best of ways. I am savouring this time… going on adventures… experiencing life. I needed some time to clear my head and find my inspiration and I’m happy to announce that I’m back and kicking things off with a field trip over to the Delish General Store!

Delish General Store is a mom and pop (online-until-now) shop that celebrates the revival of the handmade and home grown, extol the virtues of getting your hands dirty, and the pioneering spirit. They carry hard-to-find, “didn’t-know-I-needed-this-until-I-found-it”, hip, handy and heritage-inspired products. Always a HUGE hit at Got Craft?, Delish General Store has taken over the Chinatown Experiment store front this weekend to host their first pop-up!
