As of late… snapshots from November

Juno snail mail - The cat, you and us

Although my mind is more into what December will offer us and my head is pretty much blocked with holiday decorations (ha!), it’s time to make a little wrap up of all the things that happened in November that we are able to quickly capture through our phones, want to join us?

The month started with the post effects of our Halloween dinner party and ended up with our first Christmas market of the year at the We Love Cats Market (do you remember our visit from last year?). Now that I read it… not bad at all! We also discovered a new yummy place called Ceviche 103 (our Peruvian cuisine obsession is only growing day by day, have you ever tried it?) and had amazing surprises in our mail inbox, and thanks to this blog & the lovely community I mean real letter not digital ones ;) – you should see how my heart jumps a little with love & happiness when I get one!

Halloween pumpkins - The cat, you and us

The day after the party our house was looking like this :) I had to keep a little of our Halloween decor for the week.

Here’s a giant (?) spoiler, our Christmas postcards arrived in the mail in these boxes.

A peruvian “causa limeรฑa” with shrimps and avocado, Nommm!

Magnets in our fridge - The cat, you and us

We received a wonderful Bauhaus postcard from Kate travelling to Berlin, I read it with excitement and then knew I had to include it as part of our fridge memories. We like to decorate it with keepsakes from our travels (or special things). If you are curious about any of them, let us know in the comments section! I will explain the story behind :)

Usagui chestnut cake - The cat, you and us

My favorite feel good patisserie in Barcelona, Usagui, had autumn specialities that we of course tried: Hot yuzu and Chestnut cake.

My Japanese is limited but I know that “usagi” means rabbit, and that’s the inspiration for the ceramics of the patisserie. Join me while crying: kawaiiiiii!

We love cats market - The cat, you and us

Although Dani was feeling awful during the weekend due to a strange flu he insisted on still visiting the market on Sunday (the last day) because we couldn’t miss this yearly date!

Our collab friend Nagataya Kyoto was there, and we had to take a “very Japanese” pic with him.

We got the chance to talk with the girls behind Wandering Orion, one of our recent discoveries that has us obsessed. They were the cutest and friendliest, and told us how they love Juno & her pics, thanks girls!

Papilla de fruta at We Love Cats market - The cat, you and us

Papilla de fruta was a market discovery! She was booth neighbors with Nagataya Kyoto and was very sweet with us as well! I fell in love with her style. Can you spot a Juno-like among her products?

How was November at your home? and what are your plans for December? Let me guess, a little Christmas around the corner? Just kidding! It’s only that I need to add the word Christmas whenever I see a chance!

    Your pictures are making me jealous. I haven’t been to any craft fairs yet this year. I need to remedy that soon. And thanks for the intro to Papilla de Fruta. Adorable wares!

      Glad that you liked Papilla de Fruta! :) Craft fairs are so much fun! The last years they are mostly held during late November/December, I guess the Christmas season is better for purchases. Does the same happen in Montreal?

  2. The chestnut cake looks so good! And yes, I remember your post about the market from before :) I love markets because there’s always something new to find! And haha I still have my Halloween pumpkin in my room :P I didn’t carve it so that it would last longer! -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s

      Oh! I definitely should have more “not craved” pumpkins decorating our home for the autumn season, specially the little ones are too adorable! :) The chestnut cake was amazing, I like how Japanese pastisserie has always just the amount of sweetness I like :) yay!

    Oh November looks like a super delicious and cute month! I love your fridge too, I’d be way too embarrassed to show our fridge in comparison, lots of cheap takeaway menus and bad fridge magnets :P (not in a good way either!) I’m most curious about the shoe on your fridge (bottom right) and I love your little white maneki!

      The shoe magnet is a souvenir my mom brought me from Menorca (an island on Illes Balears). The shoe is called “avarca” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Avarca and is the most traditional thing from the island. The story behind is that I planned all the trip for my mom and auntie so they could go on adventures together, because both or them don’t like travel planning at all and usually become overwhelmed with the possibilities but I’m glad to report they were happy about my choices and how everything went ;) I’m sure your fridge is super interesting! :)

    Craft fairs are definitely a thing in Montreal, we’ve just been way too busy to go to any yet.
