No More Tears Onion Tip ~



No More Tears Onion Tip ~
I use onions everyday in everything I cook, because it truly adds flavor to all meals, plus it has so many health benefits. No need for tears when cutting onions. I realized by placing onions in the fridge or in a ...cool place that when I cut the onions they would not cause tearing, interesting realization I thought, so I'm sharing my tip with you.

Onion incredible health benefits:
• The phytochemicals in onions improve the working of Vitamin C in the body, thus gifting you with improved immunity.
• Onions contain chromium, which assists in regulating blood sugar.
• For centuries, onions have been used to reduce inflammation and heal infections.
• Raw onion encourages the production of good cholesterol (HDL), thus keeping your heart healthy.
• A powerful compound called quercetin in onions is known to play a significant role in preventing cancer.
• Ideal remedy for honeybee stings? Apply onion juice on the area for immediate relief from the pain and burning sensation.
• Onions scavenge free radicals, thereby reducing your risk of developing gastric ulcers.
•Those bright green tops of green onions are rich in Vitamin A, so do use them often.

You'll be my love...


You'll be my love...

A sneak peak at one of the many photo art creations that will be at the upcoming
Photo Exposition Fundraiser Event for the Vaudreuil-Soulanges Palliative Care Residence..
November 30th ~ Harwood Galerie ~ Vaudreuil, Hudson

All my photos have a story and an inspirational quote usually written by me. For this one I could not have written a better quote. I titled this one, Who'll be my love , which was inspired by a Cat Stevens song, ruby my love, that was playing while working on the exposition. I thought the words went very well with the story of this photo capture.

Who'll be my love

You'll be my love

You'll be my sky above

Who'll be my light

You'll be my light

You'll be my day and night

You'll be mine tonight

Hand stained photo art frames and photo laminations, in various sizes will be part of the photo exposition fundraiser as well as many other photo creations and goodies, wine and cheese, music by Mark Drisdelle and good times.

Hope you will come join us, to help support this community cause.

Spring ~ Summer Decor Trends & inspirations...


Spring Decor

Inspirations comes from many places, I would even say that we all inspire each other in many ways. As a designer, one of my favorite things to do is simply go window shopping...no buying. I like to see the retail trends and then I put my on interpretations and twist into my creations. Sometimes its a fabric or a colour that will inspire me, or a shape or a unique detail. It's never just one thing as a whole, its a combination of bits and pieces of the things I have seen. It can even be a fashion item I saw on a walker by. I always come back from these excursions most inspired. I always look at it all as a whole, the decorations, the fashions, the buildings, all of it inspires me in one form or an other. These are some of the items that caught my creative eye and spirit this season while in Montreal window shopping and at the Montreal Spring Gift Show which is for trade only (so you can get an concept of what up and coming).

After I see things that inspire me, I let them simmer, I kayak, I get inspired by nature and then when I make things, I get a creative serge that leads the way to a new creation.
