I Know What You're Thinking ...

You're thinking "But Lorraine, you mean you didn't buy any buttons or bits of lace?" Not to worry, of course I did! Here's a picture:

Antiques at Aberfoyle

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:
Rusty 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!

Recent Getaway with Friends

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.

Toronto Urban Strolls

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!
