Fun places to visit ~

Good Morning everyone ~ I hope your week has started off well. 

The top picture is one of the places that Mr. Vintage and I visited.  What a glorious place to shop ~
Here is one of the houses in a little town called Sparta.  Isn't it adorable ~
Then there is this little place.  It sells the most yummy candles.  You can visit them here

The architecture of the houses is just wonderful ~

and look at this lovely little lane that we drove down ~ sigh ~

A beautiful barn ~

Then back on the road to the camper
What a wonderful relaxing weekend ~
What do you do to relax? ~ Please share with me

A lovely weekend ~

I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend ~
Mr. Vintage decided to take me to Sparta, Ontario camping~!
You know how much I love camping ;-)
The campground is a conservation area and is just beautiful
of course, we need some comforts ~ like our favourite chairs ~
We always take the happy traveler
We always get a copy of the Daytripping Paper to peruse together with a libation ~
Mr. Vintage made wonderful breakfasts for us ~ yum ~
We even met this fluffy little fellow ~
I'll share more of our trip with you soon ~

Have a wonderful week ~

A very special place ~

Happy Tuesday everyone ~ I want to share with you a special place that Mr. Vintage and I visit ~ not as often as I would like...but...

Mr. Vintage has a friend who lives 5 miles down the road from us and owns this beautiful property which is on Cedar Creek (crick as we call it in Harrow).  What a lovely relaxing place to be ~
We love to come here and sit and relax ~ all you hear are birds and the wind occasionally.
We are planning a getaway here with the camper.  No hydro, no nothing (Well, ladies, there is an outhouse).  A complete and total getaway for a couple of days ~

What do you think about a getaway with no conveniences for a couple of days?

Let me know ~ I would love to hear from you

Supervised Play Date ~

Happy Sunday ~

Mr. Vintage and I supervised a play date with the chickens last night ~ what fun!
They ran straight for the red current bush (I've been feeding them red currents for a treat ;-)
It wasn't long before Rosie was off and running ~
Rosie even let me pick her up and pet her ~ she's my little chickie

The chickens really had fun running around the yard... then it was bedtime and they all went into their coop.  They were very tired.  We'll have many more play dates with the chickens ~
Have a wonderful day ~
What are you doing today for enjoyment?

What to do ~ What to do ~

Happy Wednesday ~!

Mr. Vintage is up to his old tricks again ~ we picked up a little cabinet at the Treasure Hunt and he surprised me with this makeover ~!

Sneek peek at the red ~ you know how I LOVE red

Isn't this cabinet just so retro and sweet? ~ almost musical ~  I want to keep it.  Mr. Vintage wants to sell it ~ what should we do?

Rosie ~ tell me what should we do?
Mommy, do what you want ~ I LOVE YOU

I LOVE Daddy too ~ but sometimes, men just don't understand ~

I'm going to look for squirrels now ~ I'm not saying anything ~ I love you both.

What do YOU think we should do?  Please let me know ~ Can't wait to hear from you

A bedroom redo ~

Hello everyone ~ Happy Tuesday.  I hope your 4th of July was enjoyable ~
I have wanted to do "something" with our bedroom and just didn't know what.

Here is a picture of our bedroom before
Didn't like it ~ so......
I decided to paint the bed ~ thank you Mr. Vintage for being soooo patient with me.

Here is the finished product ~ just a little makeover ~

I am so happy that I made this little change ~ what little changes have you made that make you smile ;-)

Sharing my Treasures ~

Good morning everyone ~ I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend ~
I thought I would share with you some of the treasures that Mr. Vintage and I picked up at the Heritage Village Treasure Hunt ~ I have been looking for red and white enamel pots and pans for our little vintage camper ~ well ~ I hit the jackpot!
This one is perfect for corn on the cob ~

Aren't these sweet? ~ and then there is ~

~ last but not least ~

I also got a few big blue and white pots ~ Imagine ~ all of them for a mere $10.00.

I also picked up these sweet little hangers ~

Aren't they just adorable?  The Treasure Hunt was so much fun and we met so many wonderful people that Mr. Vintage and I are going to do it again in September. 
A special thank you to Claud, who is the caretaker of the Village.  He was a most gracious host and showed us around.  He is also a very witty man and made us all laugh and smile ;-)

What treasures have you found lately?
