It was tough to get up early-ish this morning and drag my journaling supplies off to the Bizzy B Stamp & Scrapbook store but I did it. Glad I did too because Dina Wakley the class instructor is a fun and talented teacher. We made wee bird journals. Look at mine, I'm so happy with how it turned out.

... antiquing with dealers Kathy of the Eclectic Pelican and Kim of Tattered and Torn. We followed this path of flower petals through the side garden into the back yard where we wandered through the pretty displays.
Here are some photo highlights.

One of the things I did last week was make a trip to Queen Street West, to visit some of the stores I like there. First stop was The Spice Trader & The Olive Pit.
|Always such a pretty display that makes me want to go home and re-arrange my stuff.|
|They sell good quality pepper mills at reasonable prices and their pepper is so flavourful.|
A quick peak into The Paper Place store, where, for once, I escaped without a purchase then across to Nadege, the French coffee shop for a pastry and coffee. I sat on their outdoor patio where I literally had to fend off the cute little sparrows who actually landed on my table and begged for crumbs!
My shopping experience didn't end there. I headed up to the Junction. More on that in my next post.

Yesterday started at 5:15 a.m. when I got up to get ready for a full day of antiquing with some friends.We arrived at the show which is about an hour's drive west of Toronto, all bright-eyed just after 8 a.m.
We saw faded things:
|Pretty chairs in pretty colours|
|Nice table setting at Chat Noir.|
|Cupcakes that were both pretty and delicious!|
|Gorgeous old trunk with the name of one of my favourite Ontario towns.|
|I bought this book with maps of old London, England|
|Some wonderful old Air Mail envelopes that I scored!|
|After about 7 hours at the show, I really did have a Bonne Nuit!|
Thank you for a fun day of hunting and gathering, Cynthia and Colleen!

I was lucky a couple of weekends ago to be able to join some friends at a cottage in Thornbury, a few miles north of Toronto. We stopped for lunch in Violet Hill (pretty name for a village!) then continued on. The first evening we celebrated a friend's birthday with lots of food and bubbly. The next two days included more food, shopping and a friendly game of euchre capped off by a spa visit on Sunday.
In keeping with the Toronto theme of my last two posts, I wanted to share this book that I was excited to find recently, Toronto Urban Strolls. I am looking forward to going on some of these great urban excursions with my friends and my iPhone!

It was a great day for some mood shots with the wet streets and misty sky.
Roy Thomson Hall with the CN Tower in the background.
Nice metal sculpture here. I’m sorry I didn’t get a change to record the name of the artist of building.
