I’m happy to report that we have entered our second year in business! The café opened on July 17th, 2017. Thank you to all you gorgeous people for your patronage, and to my exceptional staff: Ted (the Kitchen Magician), Gilbert, Amanda, Justin, Kim, Leah, Megan, and Duke.
We grabbed a take-out supper from the café and ate at the picnic table in the first gazebo on the Greenspond walking trail last night. Duke had the Baxter Burger & Chippies with a Dad’s Root Beer, and I had the Chick Pea Curry with an iced coffee. Yummy supper.
Beautiful evening, until the mosquitoes found us. In Greenspond! The 1st time I’ve ever seen them there! Never mind all the tragic things happening all over the world- I’m upset about the immigration of mosquitoes to Pond Island!!! I think I’m prejudiced towards mosquitoes.

Several years ago, I made a new friend, a German photographer named Martin Weinhold. Martin was visiting Newfoundland, working on a project that has become even bigger than he first imagined, called Workspace Canada. The idea was to photograph Canadians such as myself within the workspace, telling a true Canadian story, as opposed to the stereotype common in many German heads, Canadians all being either Mounties or cowboys.
I was quite surprised when my website was suddenly being watched by Germany and surrounding countries a couple of months ago- turns out I had been mentioned in a German magazine, and folks had started looking up my studio. Of course, Martin wrote the article, shown in the link below. Thanks for the introduction to some new followers, Martin!
I love it when other people’s excursions bring them to me. Like a lovely couple from Seattle, who have come all the way across the continent and visited my shop a couple of times now! I feel pretty fab to have made the list of places to revisit! And here are some photos they took yesterday while I was printing some Norton’s Cove Mini-Prints in a red-yellow rainbow roll…
