0 Happy Thanksgiving! Salted Honey Lavender Pie

Earlier this summer we invited Vancouver pie baker, Tina Lau of Tarte Populaire to share her infamous Salted Honey Lavendar Pie recipe in our Poppytalk Summer publication. And since it's Throwback Thursday (and Thanksgiving in the U.S.), we thought we'd bring the recipe to the blog —in case any of you may have missed this magical pie!  Magical? Yes, because once you take a bite you'll know what we mean. The fusion of the salt, mixed with the sweet of the honey and then the hint of lavender are other-worldy.  So so good!  And the crust! One of the best!

Thank you Tina for sharing this with us, and if you are in Vancouver and are a non-baker, you can actually order this pie and many other special fruit pies from her by simply shooting her an email!  Click here to visit her site or you can also see more of her creations on her IG account @tartepop. The recipe is just after the jump! Happy Thanksgiving to our American friends!


0 E28 Collection at Nineteen Ten

Designed for modern Vancouver living in mind, E 28 Collection integrates reclaimed butcher block wood and newly formed stainless steel for both beauty and durability. E 28 Collection features the Station Block, Main Bench and Prior Table, three distinct furniture pieces that each embody heritage feel through modern form.

Made in collaboration with Pacific Design Lab and Nineteen Ten Home Boutique, the E 28 Collection is designed for accessibility, versatility and full customizable. The base model for each piece comes with the naturally beautiful butcher block wood, freshly sanded with natural oil finish and custom formed steel is left raw and untreated. Customize to fit into your space by adding a dark wash for depth and detail in the wood or a coastal inspired white wash for a contemporary finish. The steel can be powder-coated for a fresh and clean finish.

0 Giving Back | Shop for Hope (Canadian Women's Foundation)

During the season of giving, it's always important to us to find ways to give back and this year we were excited to hear about Shop for Hope, a holiday product line launched by the Canadian Women’s Foundation in partnership with Winners and HomeSense. We love that 100 per cent of the net profits from  Shop for Hope  go to the Foundation’s investments in emergency shelters, programs that help women rebuild their lives from abuse, and prevention programs that teach young people how to stop violence – for good.


0 Our 2015 Holiday Cards

We've partnered with Staples Canada for the holiday season to offer custom gift ideas from their  new Copy & Print center.  We've always wanted to order a set of customized holiday cards for the season and for Poppytalk's 10 year anniversary this year, we thought a set of Corporate Holiday Cards would be a nice touch.  So we ordered and love how they turned out!  We ordered two different kinds, one with an image we uploaded and the other using their pre-made designs adding a custom message inside.
