random Saturday

Happy Saturday, my friends.  I have been busy cleaning and fluffing our cottage.

I thought I would share some random images with you today.  My garden is starting to grow quite nicely.

It is chilly and damp in Ontario today ~ so the chilli is cooking  ~

The bread is rising ~ yum ~

and my garden is popping.  Just about perfect, don't you think?

Can't you just smell the lilacs?  I must pick some today to bring that fresh smell into the cottage ~

My bleeding heart just loves these cooler temps ~ it really makes my heart sing ~

Chessie loves exploring in the garden ~

I hope you all have a wonderful Saturday.  What are you doing today ~ Can't wait to hear

Junkin' on a Rainy Day ~

Hello my friends ~ It's rainy, cold and damp here in Ontario, so Mr. Vintage and I went for a drive.  Well lo and behold ~ could it be?  Yes!  Yes! a garage sale ;-)

We couldn't help ourselves, and these are the little pretties that I picked up ~

I picked up this little flower pot for 50 cents.  Once, I got it home I realized that it's a Fitz and Floyd ~

I love the shell and coral detail on the sides ~

Then, I spotted these ~

I love old keys. What is it about old keys that is so appealing?  Well, I really lucked out on these.  I asked the lady how much she wanted for them.  She told me "take them".  They were a gift from the nice lady.

Then I picked up four of these for $2.00.  I love to drink iced tea and an occasional glass of wine out of these.  It just makes everything taste better and feel so elegant.

Well, the other pretties that I picked up are being laundered, so I will have to share them with you another time.

Have you been junkin' lately?

I can't wait to hear all of your junkin' stories
