Every woman needs a secret place to escape to... for me it's at Frenchy's.

Harvesting :: calendula
Calendula is a plant-matter that I use a lot in my homemade lotions, oils, creams, etc. Last summer I only planted six plants and did'nt harvest enough to dry so I ended up having to order more dried flowers. This year I have 24 plants and let me tell you - they are keeping me busy having to harvest every second day. My drying racks are full !!!
I have two grown children and grandmother to a little boy. I prefer a simple, low-maintenance lifestyle. I try to give more than I receive. I believe everything happens for a reason. Our home reflects who we are.
My mantra "Celebrate Life"
A chain of used clothing stores found throughout the atlantic provinces of Canada. Started by a man from my area, Mr. Edwin Theriault. You never know what you'll find, there's something for everyone, clothing for the whole family, major brand names, books, footwear, drapery, brick a bracks, etc. I love it so much, can't help myself from going - I'm addicted to Frenchy's.
