CANADA'S 150TH BIRTHDAY and OUR CANADA 150 COMMEMORATIVE TEA TOWEL !

 

Canada 150


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It started with a Big Leaf Maple leaf found on the beaches of Tofino by the owner of inspirati, Wendy Brownie. She sketched the leaf and handed that over to the creative team at Wax Partnership where the design evolved into a perfect example of the diversity and inclusiveness of our provinces and territories. A true representation of our country's values and traditions!

 

The design was then sent to Le Jacquard Francais in France and Wendy was fortunate enough to visit their production facility in Gerardmer in northeastern France to see the tea towels being woven. An experience of a lifetime! Le Jacquard Français weaving

 

The 100 % long staple cotton tea towels have now arrived in time for Canada's big celebration and will continue to be available at inspirati for $40 each ( they are also being sold at a select few retail outlets of Le Jacquard Francais in Paris! ).

Part of the proceeds from the sale of the tea towels will go to the WE Charity, and their Education Pillar, to help alleviate childhood poverty ( www.WE.org ).

Here are 10 things Karen Miller can’t live without.

Poorboy Rich Caramel Nut Banana Bread

( This is the excerpt. ) For those of you who have had our Poorboy Fleur de Sel Caramels you know there are rarely any left. However recently I found a box hidden (from myself for restraint purposes ) with about a dozen left. They were edible but not their usual luscious selves. Hence, into the Banana Bread they went! I cut the Poorboy caramels into small pieces and put them in the freezer. Once the dough for the banana bread was ready I swirled the frozen caramel pieces and some of the chopped nuts into the top of the batter. The result is RICH gooey goodness just as fantastic as the caramels themselves.

Feel free to use your own banana bread recipe or use this simple one I rely on...
