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! ❤️

Closed Sunday October 1st/Thanksgiving Hours

 Sadly, our fall season is begining to wind down, however, we still have a few weekends to go.

Next weekend we will be closed on Sunday. There are, in life, milestone celebrations too precious to be missed and we wouldn't miss this one for the world.

We will add Friday to Thanksgiving weekend and, of course, we're open this weekend and we sure hope you'll stop by if your around.

Have a fabulous Friday night and a wildly wonderful weekend! ❤️

End of Summer and Fall Hours

And that concludes our summer season.

I won't take up your time with a long winded, mushy, gushy post. (I'll save that for Thanksgiving weekend.)

If you have been with us for a while you've heard this before, but if you're new to our The Little Tart community (and we have met a lot of new people this summer which is absolutely wonderful) we want you to know that summer is everything to this little business. We have essentialy two months to make our year. We give it everything we've got and hope it's good enough to keep you coming back and telling others. That's what keeps us here. That is what has kept this little business going for fifteen years. Whether you have been coming here for fifteen years or found us while passing through, whether it has been eight years or eight minutes (yep, it happens) since you were last here, Bill and I can't thank you enough for another amazing summer season. We appreciate and adore each and every one of you. Whether you support us in the store or offer kind words of encouragement here online, we appreciate and adore you. We know and we never forget that without you there is no The Little Tart. We consider ourselves extremely fortunate and can never, ever thank you enough.

And now that the summer is winding down, it is time for us to slow things down. We will have new fall hours until Thanksgiving weekend. That weekend we will add the Friday but you don't need to remeber that. I'll post it. If you're in, around, or nearby the Haliburton Highlands this autumn we hope you'll pop by and if your time here ends with the summer we sure hope you'll visit us again next year.

We hope you're having a super-duper stupendously satisfying Sunday and an absolutely fabulous long weekend! ❤️
