Question for my photographer friends: I'm working in a semi-cluttered furniture store with a 55 mm lens. The furniture is tremendously heavy and difficult to move (out of the way. So... what lens would you have used to make this hutch worth looking at. Any other ideas? Adobe Photoshop? http://estore.canon.ca/shop/en-CA/catalog/lenses-flashes… . TIA:)

THE ENGLISH BEAT @ The Opera House | April 26, 2014

The last time I saw The English Beat was several years ago somewhere way down south in Columbus, Ohio. I didn’t know the band then, but thought a road trip might be fun even if the show wasn’t. The English Beat was amazing! If you’re an 80s ska fan like me, you won’t want to miss these at the The Opera House on April 26. Tickets are $27.

Ink is hard to come by in my house, so when I found these stylin' Retro Pens by Kikkerland at The Tiny Record Shop in Leslieville, I had to buy them.

At $6.95 for five they're probably a bit more expensive than you're standard BIC pens, but I have a feeling these guys won't leave me digging through the junk drawer anytime soon. 

The Tiny Record shop is located at 804 Queen Street East in Toronto.

BREAKFAST with a view in Leslieville 

By Karen Lloyd

Unless you like lineups that smell like ketchup and make your belly snarl, don’t even try to go out for breakfast in Leslieville on the weekend. 

Popular brunch spots like Lady Marmalade and Bonjour Brioche are perpetually at capacity on Saturdays and Sundays, but during the week you’re likely to find a table, that is, if you haven’t already found another diner. Jim’s Restaurant is a hidden gem located at 897 Queen Street East where you can order breakfast with view all day long for $8.

Although Jim’s Restaurant was busy at lunch hour, everyone had a place to eat and the single waitress didn’t lose her cool when I changed tables three times, asked for peanut butter and walked to the counter for a refill on my coffee. She was fast and friendly, but I didn’t feel rushed. Jim’s has WIFI, too, so instead I spent from noon to two nibbling on toast while I worked and watched people go in and out of this genuinely retro diner. 

Since I’m not a fan of crowds, I like that Jim’s Restaurant is a place you can go to hide (especially after the brunch rush, possibly even on weekends). It’s not hip or fancy, but the food is good and greasy and cheap. At Jim’s you can also order classic sandwiches, burgers and Greek specialties. If you don’t expect to be catered to like a queen and like a mellow environment, try Jim’s the next time your belly begs for breakfast.

OLD-WORLD GLAM @ Elbers Furniture

Doesn't this pink Depression Glass ashtray make you want to take up smoking? Me, too!

I discovered this cheap and cheery gem hiding in a cabinet at Elbers Furniture in Riverside (just west of Leslieville). 

Not exactly sure, but I think the purpose of Depression Glass, beyond practicality, was to bring light (and hope) to Canadians and Americans who were mostly down and out during the Great Depression.

If you like this style of vintage decor, Elbers Furniture also has two translucent green candy dishes and a see through yellow teacup and saucer set. While it was mass produced and practically given away, Depression Glass is nearly 100-years-old now and more difficult to find.

Thanks so much, Sue! It makes me really happy to have brought back memories you forgot you even had. I think I'm going to have to go back and get the teacup and saucer set. Just too beautiful to pass up.

Ever since we've been going to The Bone House in Leslieville, I've had my eye on Tango,  a plush dog toy that looks like Ivan.

My Labradoodle muppet turned three today, so on our way home from the bank, I let him walk me into The Bone House for a special birthday treat. Nothing unusual, really, except I was open to splurging on something other than his usual bully stick. While my dog took too long to choose his gift, more interested in cookies on the counter, the shop girl retrieved Tango by +West Paw Design, and pointed out the uncanny resemblance between this motley beast and my dog. It's true! 

We've been home from The Bone House five hours, and it's clear that Tango, although now missing one eye, is Ivan's new best friend and doppleganger. Not only is furry creature fun for toss and tug of war and showing off to visitors, but Tango looks so much nicer lounging in my living room than Ivan's collection of my old mittens and socks. 

The Bone House on Queen Street East in Toronto stocks only the best quality organic food and eco-friendly (not to mention adorable) products for canines and their companions: moss and clary sage scented candles by Izola, gum rubber bones and even vintage inspired leather accessories (aka collars and leashes). 

You can't miss this shop, especially not with your dog in tow.

What isn't new. I've had lots of dreams, that will likely come true.

I was starting to have serious breathing problems, worse than ever before...Every morning I would wake up and feel like an elephant was sitting on my chest. My doctor gave me an inhaler for asthma, but I also heard that dirty ducts could cause dirty air for breathing and so I called Phil at Ductwise in Port Hope. It was instantaneous. The quality of my indoor air means I no longer need to use an inhaler. There is no longer an elephant on my chest in the morning. The amount of dirt sucked out of my ducts was startling, and they even discovered an emerald earring I thought I'd never see again. I'm definitely going to make Ductwise a part of my annual winter cleaning routine. It's totally worth and Phil and his team are very professional. If you live in Port Hope, Cobourg, Peterborough or the surrounding area, give them a call!
