Closed for the Season


Once again, it’s about to get very still and quiet around here for a while. I hate good-byes. I get all teary-eyed and weepy and it turns into a whole messy thing. I used to sob while writing these. Not this year. I’ve written so many of them now I know this isn’t good-bye, just so long for now.

There are no pretences here. Bill and I aren’t solving the world’s problems or developing much needed cures. We’re not celebrities or winning awards for what we do. We bake. We operate a tiny tart store in a small town carved out of the forest. On a cosmic scale - my choice of reference is a tribute to Bill’s ceaseless quest to learn about our universe - we are one, single, solitary star. We’re not trying to outshine all the others; we’re trying to shine just enough to be discoverable and that you and you and you discovered us and pointed us out to others never ceases - to us - to be remarkable!

What a phenomenal season! What positive energy and atmosphere! It was truly incredible, my friends. Around about year five I wrote a post I refer to as “Anything But a Bakery”. I was very candid in explaining why I didn’t want to open The Little Tart.

Am I ever glad we ignored my misgivings.

I love this business. I love all of you who visit our little shop and who join me here online. I love the little community we call The Little Tart.

Bill and I are so proud of what we have all come together to create here; a place and a page where joy and happiness reign. There’s enough negativity in the world. We strive to drown it out, if only for a moment, but in that moment – Wow – what an incredible experience to be a part of!

Though we’re at the end of our regular season, we’ll wrap up our eleventh season – life and weather willing - with two days in December (21st and 22nd) and then our thoughts turn to next year.

And so, my friends, we thank you again for an incredible eleventh season. It has been an honour and a privilege to bake for you. We hope you’ll join us when we do this again next year.

Be safe, be healthy, be happy.

Does anybody have a tissue?

August Long Weekend

When a long weekend falls in the middle of summer there isn't much time to be a fancy-pants!

Summer Hours

Bill and I couldn't have asked for a better Canada Day long weekend! What a fantastic way to kick off our summer season!

In the store and here online you motivate us and we consider ourselves so fortunate to be able to interact with so many fabulous people.

Now that our season is underway we'll be adding some more open days. We're going to repeat last year because it worked out perfectly!

Thank you so much! We hope you are enjoying the sunny weather and have a wonderful Canada Day!
