Beauty in the Ordinary

This is not about being brilliant, or extraordinary, it's not about wanting to be famous, or making headlines, or trying to impress...this about sharing a 'gift' each day with the lift the spirit of people when they read this blog, to show them the beauty in the ordinary.
"And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it." Raold Dahl

J.  I can't be precious about my copper pots.  I don't polish them any more, except on extremely bad-weather days when I can't go outside to play and I'm looking for something, anything to do!  I use them, wash them, put them away.
After twenty years of this abuse, they do need re-tinning however.  I am having a heck of a time finding someone who does this.  If anyone knows of such an angel, that exists within driving distance of Niagara on the Lake, I would love to hear about them (shipping them anywhere would just be silly).


  1. Oh pooh! If you get desperate, I've had copper retinned at Noles Plating in Dallas.

    WHAT are these gorgeous flowers in today's "cover photo"? They look like dogwood, but I'm the first to admit I don't know what a dogwood leaf looks like... They're stunning!

  2. Not a clue Lili...but they are everywhere in NOTL. I thought they looked especially beautiful in the rain! I'll see if I can track down their name.
    Are you travelling soon? Is that the reason for the 'break'?

  3. Handy hint from Mrs Stephenson - don't cook anything acid (fruit, etc) in your un-tinned pots, you may give yourself copper poisoning!

  4. I just posted about the most delicious store in paris that had a glorious selection of copper pots! I would take Tom's advice though - that could get ugly... :)
    bon weekend,

  5. I'm listening...all but the braising pan and small saucepan are filed in the basement. I look, but don't cook! Help!


Go on...make my day...
