Fluffing my camper ~
Happy Sunday everyone ~ As you may know, Mr. Vintage and I have decided to go camping this Labour Day weekend and I have been busy fluffing my camper
We absolutely need fresh vintage bedding. So comfy ~
A beautiful shabby quilt that will keep us cozy if the weather is chilly at night ~
Vintage pillow cases and sheets are just perfect ~ don't you think?
This looks sooo comfy ;-)
I bought this enamelware match box a while ago. I use it for napkins.
Ofcourse, my chippy little chickens are ready to go ~
We'll be on the road this Saturday and ofcourse, I will take you with me ~ are you ready?
The biggest thrill is ~
Mr. Vintage had this made for the camper. I love it~! Soooooo, if you see us go down the road, just toot toot ~ hello ;-)
What have you been doing today?
Can't wait to hear ~

Wonderful Surprise ~!
I hope everyone's week is going well ~
My week has been hectic but it's been a lovely week as well ~
Something arrived in the mail ~!
A little while ago, I won a giveaway from Susan (and Bentley ofcourse) at Ash Three Cottage ~ I was so excited to receive this. A wonderful magazine ~!
Susan and I have become wonderful friends and I just think she is an absolute sweet heart ~ stop by her blog for a visit. It is full of sweet sweet posts, wonderful eye candy and ofcourse, Bentley ;-)
Susan and Bentley ~ thank you. I will enjoy this. I am saving it as Mr. Vintage and I have decided to go away camping for a couple of days over the Labour Day weekend.
Ahhhh ~ a cup of tea, relaxing and savouring a wonderful magazine. I can hardly wait to go ~ ;-)
I hope everyone has a wonderful day. Mine has started out just perfect.

Chickens and Roses ~
Hello ~ I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend ~
Today was a really fun day ~ I started out by fluffing my nest ~ then Mr. Vintage and I had coffee in the back yard ~
Yes my friends, we had coffee with the chickens ~
We love to let the chickens out in the yard and watch them. They are very comical
Rosie is very curious and loves to peck and scratch ~
What are you girls doing in my garden?
This is Gabby ~ she loves to cluck and squawk ~
I have always wanted a milk bottle carrier and I finally found one on Etsy and guess What? ~ she arrived today ~
I just love it on my farmhouse table ~ sigh ~
After our coffee with the chickens, Mr. Vintage and I went grocery shopping...on the way he stopped at a flower shop and we went in. Yes, my friends he did, he did, he bought me roses ~ just for me ~
Aren't they beautiful? I split them up and put the creamy ones in the kitchen and the pink ones in the living room ~
The house smells heavenly ~
Thank you Mr. Vintage ~ It's not even my birthday, our anniversary ~ nothing ~ but he said I was worth it. I love you Mr. Vintage ~
Tonight I am making lamb chops, garlic mashed potatoes and fresh veggies. ~mmmmm~ can't wait
How is your day going?
Can't wait to hear

I think I'm tired ~
Hello my friends ~ I am sooooo tired ~ but quite happy ~
This is how my weekend started out ~
Mr. Vintage helped me ~ he peeled them ~
The stewed tomatoes ended up just lovely ~ then, we decided to do another hamper of tomatoes ~ really?
Now, we not only have stewed tomatoes....We have tomato basil sauce and tomatoes, green peppers and onions (I use this to make cabbage rolls)... I'm pooped ~
Ofcourse, I couldn't be satisfied with all this work, I made soup (an easy peasy dinner) ~ I think I'm losing it ;-)
The temperature was only 72 degrees when we decided to can. Perfect Weather. So...., I had a pork hock and made yellow split pea soup and home made bread.
It was a busy day, but with Mr. Vintage's help, it was really fun ~
Thank you Mr. Vintage for the help. This winter, we are REALLY going to appreciate all the work. ~
What did you do this weekend? Do you do any canning?
Please let me know that I am not the only crazy one here ;-)

Happy Monday my friends ~
Today is a civic holiday in Canada. The weather has finally cooled down and it is just beautiful outside ~
My poor roses felt the hot hot temps. But look ~ I still do have blooms ~
My butterfly bush still thrives ~
It is just beautiful weather. This weather is making me smile ;-)
Some random Monday images for you to enjoy
I picked up this litte lamp at a yard sale for $2.00. Now I need a new shade ~
I picked up this little silver piece for 10 cents ~ I think it is just lovely. I love the patina ~
Time to go for a ride with Mr. Vintage. Maybe.....yes, some soft ice cream would be perfect ~ don't you think?
What are you doing today? I hope your day is filled with love and laughter ~

Oh my ~
Happy Saturday my friends ~ Oh my! It was a long week for me, but now it is Saturday. A day for rest and relaxation and time to visit all of my blogfriends in blogland ~
Last week, Mr. Vintage and I went for a ride. Here are some of my treasures ~
I picked up these sweet bowls. When it gets cooler, I'll make some home made soup or stew ~ yum~!
I couldn't resist these beautiful plates ~ I have an addiction I think ;-)
I love the scalloped edges of the bowls ~
I love the flowers on the plates ~ These plates make me smile (see I told you, I DO have an addiction~)
I also picked up this little blue bottle for 10 cents. I love it!
In romantic prairie style magazine, They had an article about decorating up horse shoes. Well, I just happened to have one in the shed. It turned out pretty cute ~
I had a vintage necklace that I used and I had some cowboy boot charms ~ I don't even remember where I got those, but they worked perfectly.
Do you have any horse shoes around? If you do, try it ~ I had fun doing it~
Today is going to be hot and steamy again, so, Mr. Vintage and I are going for a ride early ~
What are you doing today? Have you picked up any treasures lately?
Can't wait to hear from you
