I'm back ~

Hello my friends ~ I am back.

It's been a long time ~

I can hardly wait to catch up with all of you.  The summer is now gone.  Camping is now done and I have so much to tell you.  But for now ~  

I'll leave you with a few images.  I did manage to collect a few more pieces of my beloved iron stone ~

Just love the  simplicity of it.  Mr. Vintage and I are trying to live a more simple life.  

This summer has been a very stressful time for me, but I have come through it, and now I am hopefully back for good.

I will share with you soon ~

For now, I count my blessings each and every day ~

Yes,  I still am an avid collector of plates and pretties ~

I've just learned to relax a bit more.

See you soon ~

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!

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 ~!

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

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

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
