Happy Thanksgiving!

"May you have a great plenty
On this Thanksgiving day
And be very thankful
In all your work and play."

  Here in Canada it is Thanksgiving Day! I had dinner with my family yesterday and it was so scrumptious that on a whim I took out my phone and snapped a few quick pictures. I've coupled them with some lovely vintage Thanksgiving postcard images (from pinterest:). As you can see from my photos my favourite part was the dessert table! Happy Thanksgiving!

" heart fills to the brim
with Autumn."
             ~Ono no Komachi

   Today was a perfect Autumn day - the sun was shining and the leaves were golden. I take my little nine month old baby niece for a walk everyday now and today neither of us needed a jacket it was so lovely and warm. She cooed and chattered to me the whole way! Days like today remind me why I like Fall. I was so sad over the sudden departure of summer! I am just beginning to enjoy this new season. I like to sit with a cup of tea and relax with a book on a pretty autumn evening like this one. I took these pictures a few days ago with this happy pastime in mind... 

There are new treasures in the Etsy Shop!

A Beautiful Home

"Friendship is born at that moment
when one man says to another: 
"What! You too? I thought that
no one but myself...""
                ~C.S. Lewis

  I have met so many wonderful people through my blog and my etsy shop! It is so lovely to hear from people who share similar tastes to my own and who are hungry for that elegant old-fashioned atmosphere that I always crave. One of my customers recently shared some simply gorgeous snapshots of her home with me and I had to ask her if I could share them with you too. She has such an incredible collection of treasures (one or two which have come from me!) and you will see from these few pictures that her home absolutely embodies that stunning European romance. Thankyou Wedad for letting me share these pictures and for your kindness and support!
