About Door Belle
This blog is a space for ideas about the home (without wanting to sound like an IKEA ad)… From thoughts on entertaining to complaints about how the dishwasher is loaded, and other quibbles about married life. It’s also about our neighbours and the faces behind the businesses that make our street, Ossington Avenue (Toronto, ON), a community.
About the writer
I’ve lived on Ossington Avenue for 7 years. “Little Portugal” or “The Strip” (as it’s been called; can we stop calling it that?) is evolving (even more so from its shades a decade ago, when I nervous waiting for the 63 bus, alone).
I spend a lot of time on the street (or “The Strip” if you still prefer that) and surrounding area, biking, walking, exploring, drinking coffee, and drinking drinks. My 9-5 desk job is in Higher Ed communications. This is my personal experiment.
