I spent the day organizing and getting more supplies to finish up the samples in preparation for the Mode Accessories Show coming up on the weekend. I had to make up for the time spent enjoying the long-awaited sun on this past long weekend. It seemed the Summer had finally graced us. I enjoyed a lovely Sangria Saturday with J. and A. and generally a nice weekend... Then it rained today! Good day for errands!
We all took turns taking ridiculous pictures with A.'s parasol. I'll save the ridiculous ones...
Sangria Recipe (It's good! I promise!)
- 1 bottle red or white wine
- 3/4 cup orange juice (Here, we like to substitute the brightest orange cocktail possible. Good options are Tampico, Fruite or Sunny Delight! Yes, really!)
- 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
- 1/2 cup dissolved sugar/simple syrup
- 1 fresh orange, sliced
- 1 fresh peach, diced
- 1 cup fresh strawberries, sliced
- 1 fresh apple, diced
Pour all ingredients into a pitcher full of ice and enjoy!
Look at this cute planter that someone has constructed from the layers of posters on this street post. There were tonnes of posters plastered to the post as they just piled up during the CUPE strike which has happily come to an end. Anyhow, I've seen a few of these "planter boxes" at Queen and Spadina. Nice idea!
