It's That Time Again!


'kayso... this is what happens when Bill writes up the opening sign without my input. He's happy so... let him be happy.

It's that time again. Like all other wild things we're emerging from hibernation because that pretty much sums up our winter.

We're excited to get back into the kitchen and look forward to the hustle and bustle of opening. We can't wait to see you all again!

We've missed you!❤️

Happy New Year!!!

Thank you to everyone who stopped by last Saturday and today. This has been a fabulous winter opening and a wonderful finale to our 15th year!

Bill and I wish you a  very Happy New Year and we hope it is very much like our butter tarts; sweet, satisfying and full of ooey gooey goodness! We plan to party like it's 1899 (but with movies and natchos).

Have a fabulous long weekend. Please please please stay safe and healthy and come back to see us in 2024. We'll be waiting! ❤️

Winter Opening 2023

It's beginning to look like it's time to think about our winter opening! 🎶

'kayso... we've been thinking about it since we closed Thanksgiving weekend but it is drawing near and we're looking forward to getting back into the kitchen to do some baking making for your winter celebrations.

We hope you are all doing well, staying safe and healthy and having a wonderul start to the winter season which hasn't officially begun although the snow (and freezing drizzle happening right now) says it has.

Anyhoo, we are getting ready and so if you are here, around or in the vicinity of the Haliburton Highlands on Dember 23rd or 30th, we hope you drop by even if it's just to say hello because we've missed you. ❤️

Frost is on the Pumpkin

 Well, my friends, the frost is (literally) on the pumpkin.

As Bill so elequently put it; "It's a warning shot across the bow."

Winter is coming. (That's not trademarked, is it?)

But not yet.

But soon.

Hey, on the bright side... no zombies....

... yet.

We hope you are all well and having a wonderful autumn. ❤️

Thank You for 15 Fabulous Years!

No matter how many times we say it, or how emphtically it is expressed, the words always feel flat; "Thank you" can't begin to tell you the overwhelming emotion we feel every year when we realize there will be another one.

Fifteen years has come and gone since we first opened The Little Tart and there are many of you who have been with us since then. Two little words can't convey the way we feel about that.

Each year, when we open our doors, we don't know if there will be a next year. We have, on a few occasions said to ourselves, "It was good while it lasted." And a couple of those were in the past few years. As Bill and I have both learned - and as I have quoted now and again - "Life is what happens while you were busy making other plans." We have had our fair share of ups and downs during the lifetime of The Little Tart but the one constant - our true secret to still being here - is you. It has been from day one - has been for fifteen years and so "thank you" doesn't fully express our gratitude for your support, kindness, generosity and understanding when we have had to face unexpected "life happens" circumstances.

And now here we are and the end of another season and we are looking forward to the next one which makes this a very successful year. We want you to know that this "thank you" overflows with love and affection and adoration. You make us want to do our very best work and for The Little Tart to be the very best we can make it for you. The business itself is four walls and two crazy bakers. Each and every one of you make The Little Tart a special place that we are so proud to be a part of.

'kayso, now that the mushy gushy is out of the way, let's move on to Christmas because that's our next focus and a lot of you have asked about it. 

It is our plan to have a Christmas opening. The weather has its own plan (as we learned last year) so we're going to have a chat with Winter and see if we can get some cooperation. You scoff, but I did me some talking to the sun. Did you see that beautiful weather we had?

You're welcome.

We hope you are having a fabulous Thanksgiving weekend. Have a wonderful fall, winter and - if we don't see you before then - spring.  Please, please, please stay safe and healthy and come back and see us again because, until you do, we'll miss you. ❤️

Thanksgiving Weekend

Good morning and Happy Thanksgiving weekend!

Well, it's that time again. We're reaching the end of our season. (Sniff... sorry, I have something in my eye.)

While we are booked for pies, we have prepped and will be making baking to stock the store. And so, my friends, whether you are visiting the many talented artists on the studio tour or doing some leaf looking (while it lasts) and/or if you're celebrating Thanksgiving in or near the Haliburton Highlands we sure hope you'll stop by.

Have a fabulous Friday and a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend! ❤️
