Making the most out of the last of summer.

I haven't done nearly enough antique hunting as I would have liked this summer but it's understandable. However the times I did go treasure hunting were incredibly enjoyable and usually accompanied by people I adore. One example would be The Christie Antique show. Took a road trip over to Dundas Ontario with my wonderful pals Vanessa & Jess. Photos below are courtesy of them.

The overwhelming map of vendors..

Vanessa looking lovely

Stunning lamp Vanessa & Jess got. They found another with the same colours, but different style and size.

Bringing the goodies back to the car..

Got home to find Taylor working on the house...

Girls Just Want To Have Sun

I've fallen so far behind on updating this blog. So much has happened over the last couple months!
Before we get to the much anticipated photos, I'd like to do a mini catch up on Summer..

So much rhubarb!

Lap dog

First long weekend was spent at my parent's place due to our car breaking down on the way to the cottage.

Father's Day hang outs in Nonno's backyard..

Father's Day + Dad's birthday!

Flowers for Danielle's Birthday! This is my "just take a photo of the flowers not my face please."

Aberfoyle trips

Summer smoothies

Little posies I put together from flowers in my garden.

Mini pies for Poppy's 1st birthday!

Speaking of Poppy, I love how so many poppies grow in the garden

My dress, so much fabric on such a hot day

cuddlin at the cottage

Homemade rhubarb syrup!

I was sick of not having anywhere to craft in the house. So we made up this little bench area in the basement for the time being.

Old photo of my mum from a hair photo shoot.

Homemade rhubarb vodka!

There's just something so lovely about a house filled with fresh flowers..

And of course more smoothes.

Happy Canada Day!

Great way to start off my Friday morning. Up early, walk with the dog and picking berries off my tree!

These were the only ripe ones today. I haven't decided to use them in muffins or cereal. Yum!

Hope everyone has a nice relaxing long weekend!
