Products from the Dark Tickle Company

I have been carrying these products in my shop and at the Café Giftshop for many years. The products are each exceptional, but here are my Top Three:

  1. Partridgeberry Relish
    The first time I ate a fish cake with this as a topping in Griquet in 2015 turned out to be a life changing experience. I have never had a fish cake without it since. When we indulge in a local favourite: chips dressing and gravy, I add a big dollop of Partridgeberry Relish on top too, and it’s magnificent! We serve it at Norton’s Cove Café with our fish cakes, and with our salt fish ravioli.
  2. Norse Berry Soap
    I use this soap – any scent because I love them all- in the shower with one of those pouf thingies. The lather is rich and lovely and leaves me feeling clean and moisturized.
  3. Chocolate Covered Raspberries
    I love raspberries. I love chocolate. Can’t go wrong! And they go with a glass of red wine just fine!

WARNING: THIS POST CONTAINS PROFANITY

If you are easily offended, look away now.

This image was inspired by some wonderful friends who have adopted this as their life’s motto.  It is not meant to be offensive- quite the opposite.  It is an answer to the question: what will ‘they’ think?  We have one life to live, and we need to do what makes us happy, even if it means pushing the boundaries of what society expects of us. I used a rose as a symbol of love and the idea of always having time to stop and smell the roses.

“A part of the UNDERNEATH body of work, these Smudge Herring paintings remind us that we are in this together! As much as we are all individuals, there is great comfort in knowing that we are not alone in our struggles.  I intend to stop making smudge herring paintings at no. 100, and make a slight shift in my image choices.  “

Christmas @ Norton’s Cove

If you’re out and about in New-Wes-Valley today, the studio is open all day, until 9pm. I’ll be here working on some last minute hand crafted gifts for friends and family, and welcome you to browse the old shop shelves for a unique last minute gift for your own checklist!

The town of New-Wes-Valley is planning a fireworks display tonight over Norton’s Cove, and while we had hoped to have the Café open to serve drinks for the fireworks display, the timing isn’t suited for us as we have such a big day ahead of us tomorrow with our Tibb’s Eve event. The studio will be open though, so do drop in to get a warm!

We still have Tibb’s Eve tickets available here at the shop, and I’d really appreciate it if you can share that information with your peeps who are in the Greater Norton’s Cove Area. There are convenient social media share buttons right in the online shop if you use facebook, twitter, or pinterest. Today is the last day to buy tickets and submit your menu choices.

Happy Christmas, everyone!
Especially to the Team Norton’s Cove who are hard at work serving up suppers to groups celebrating the season this week – and getting ready for Tibb’s Eve too!
Thank you Ted, Duke, Trina, Kasie, and Matthew for making Christmas special in the Cove!

Christmas @ Norton’s Cove

The time is flying by, and I’m sooooooo not ready for the calendar to tell me there’s only a week left until Christmas! Things have been so busy here, with my new job with Norton’s Cove Marine, and still planning events for the Café, and making product to sell in the studio/shop… My days have been pretty full!

We have lots of Tibb’s Eve tickets left here at the shop, and I’d really appreciate it if you can share that information with your peeps who are in the Greater Norton’s Cove Area. There are convenient social media share buttons right in the online shop if you use facebook, twitter, or pinterest.
