Camping ~


Hello everyone ~

It has been so long since I last posted, but, unfortunately, my vertigo reared it's ugly head once more ~ sigh ~



I have been trying to relax and get through this.  Stress is the trigger ~ so we have gone camping ~ so relaxing.

Here is the campground in early May ~



We have a beautiful spot on top of the hill.  Mr. Vintage likes to think he is King of the Hill ~ hmmmmm, does that make me Queen?



Now it is like this ~ quite filled out.  Don't you think?

My flowers are doing beautifully there ~



and we have lots of little birds to watch





They are so beautiful.



and of course, humming birds ~



I'll be back soon ~ ahhh just looking at this makes me smile.

Have you been relaxing?  

Can't wait to hear ~

Now I'm going to catch up with all of you!

(((Hugs)))

tweaking my greenhouse


Hello my friends ~ It has been cold and damp here in Ontario.   Not very nice at all ~ rainy, rainy, rainy ~ So I decided to tweak my little greenhouse



This winter took its toll on my little greenhouse.  The glass broke and it was a mess ~ so Mr. Vintage took out all of the glass walls and we put up plastic.  Now at least I can use this little gem to start flowers and veggies ~



I put up my little window.


Mr. Vintage made a couple of shelves for my pots ~



I just love the look of old clay pots ~ don't you?



Now that it is sunny today, I will start my seeds ~ yay!

And by the way, my girls are very happy that it is Sunny today ~



Maybe we'll let them out for a romp around the yard ~



I think they want to play ~



Momma bunny has been visiting our yard too ~



She's very friendly and doesn't mind a bit that I am outside with her ~


Chico's ready to play too ~ Come on Chico let's go outside and plant some seeds ~


It's finally sunny out ~ Enjoy your day ~!

(((Hugs)))

A new couch and chair ~


Hello my friends ~ it is a beautiful day today.  I have waited so long to do this ~ laundry on the line ;-)



The fairies are loving this weather and things are starting to pop ~



I have been looking for a new couch for my living room for quite a while.  I wanted an Ikea Ektorp couch, but Mr. Vintage was not crazy for it ~ so I continued the search.

Well, today was my lucky day.  I found a couch and chair on Kijiji and it is perfect ~



Here is the chair ~




Here is part of the couch ~ the material is wonderful and they just fit in perfectly ~ Even Mr. Vintage likes it ~ It is an antique couch which was totally redone.  I love the material ~





I am very happy now.  Love this look ~ It was really funny, but the lady I purchased these from was one of my daughter's primary school teachers ~ It's such a small world



Even Chico loves the couch ~ he can look out the window from the arm of the couch ~

I'm very happy with the look.

Have you found anything that you absolutely love lately?

Do tell

(((Hugs)))

We have Easter Bunnies ~!


Happy Easter my friends ~



The table is set ~



The flowers are beautiful ~

We are ready for a wonderful Easter dinner with our family

By the way ~ we have Easter Bunnies~!

Mr. Vintage and I have been working hard trying to get the gardens cleaned out after this long long hard winter ~




Plants are starting to pop



including my poppies ~       ;-)

Well, we got to the back part of our garden and we discovered a little bit of fluff ~



Momma bunny has a nest in our garden ~ shhhh ~ the babies are sleeping.  We just could not disturb this nest ~ so I guess that part of the garden will wait a couple of weeks until the babies are big enough to move around.



Yes, we do have Easter Bunnies ~  we'll let them rest ~

I hope all of you have a Happy and safe Easter with family and friends

(((Hugs)))

Spring and a little Easter Vingette


Happy Saturday my friends ~

It is just beautiful here in Ontario.  The sun is shining, the birds are singing and so is my heart ~


I've been fluffing and puttering around the Vintage household.  I am taking a break from painting ~


My heart is singing ~ Spring is here~! Spring is here~! 


A little Easter vignette ~




Mr. Vintage bought me this Easter Lily ~ so pretty.  Just remember, for my friends who have pets, keep them away from your pets ~ they are poisonous to pets if chewed or eaten and can be fatal.


Mine is up on a tall cabinet, Chico can't get to it ~


I'm now going outside to enjoy this beautiful weather ~

What are you doing today?

Can't wait to hear

(((Hugs)))

Family Room is done ~


Happy Sunday my friends ~

The sun is shining and it is 61 beautiful degrees ~ I love this weather.  

Well, I finished the family room just in time to enjoy this gorgeous sunshine today ~

Well, here it is.  You must tell me what you think ~



I wanted this room to reflect us as a family.   A place where we can sit and relax.  Nothing fussy ~ just like a pair of old faded jeans.



There is definitely me in this room ~



and Mr. Vintage as well ;-)



Chico likes this room too ~ he think's Daddy's chair is his chair ~ hmmmm wonder who will sit here ;-)







I love this fireplace mantel






I brought in my little crib ~ I have longed for a place to put this crib.  Well, now it has a new home ~




I still have a little tweaking to do with this little sweetie, but I will fluff and fluff until I get it just right ~


Well, please tell me ~ what do you think?

We have been enjoying this room for the past couple of days and we just love it.

Can't wait to hear from you

((((Hugs))))
