How to make fake embroidered patches

Have you ever bought a pair of shoes that you don’t wear? My childhood trauma of never being able to buy shoes back home- I had huge feet that they didn’t stock sizes for (and had to shop overseas)- is making me overcompensate by being a total shoe fiend now. I have an entire cupboard of… Read more »

Top Tuesday: 10 best statement jewelry

To post or not to post. That is the question. I once read that Pete Cashmore posted up to 6 times a day when he first started Mashable. So obviously I had to 1 up him and post SEVEN times when I rebooted Hapiness, Wherever. Of course, that didn’t last 😛 It dwindled, but posting… Read more »

  • Le Panier, through a different lens

    Panier = French for basket. So what does that have to do with this district? Since it’s named after a 17th century hotel “Le Logis du Panier”, I’m not really sure- unless it references the rich traders who funded Le Panier’s expansion in the 16th-18th centuries! Whatever the significance of its name, Le Panier, the Old(est)… Read more »
