I found those cuties at one of the first yard sales. It was full of gorgeous but heavy stuff: A wood burning stove,a carved bed, chairs etc...We have a small car...so I only took the tins (they are still full!).
This adorable coffee set I found in Brockville. The insides of the coffee pot are missing so it's now a tea pot!
It was made in England in the 60's...SWEET!
We stayed at the Radisson and this is our view....
Not too shabby!
We took the last room (lucky) and at the restaurant we took the last table (weird). We are creatures of habit. I'm a firm believer in the phrase: If it's not broken don't fix it. We always eat at Café Amadeus a nice little quaint crack in the wall kind of restaurant. The food is austrian and delicious! The portions are huge and we always take the leftovers in a doggy bag. There's a fridge in the room and we ALWAYS travel with a cooler. When we go home the next day we have supper all ready! How thrifty and practical!
We walked and walked and froze. Frozen people on a stick! We left home with t-shirts and shorts (capris), but the temp kept falling; we had to buy fleece jackets to keep warm and I lost my voice....
I also found this...
a dark green eeg plate to go with the S&P hens I found the other day!
On the way back we stoped at a yard sale that just had boxes on the grass, some closed. I opened all the boxes and found some antique canning jars, I asked for the price and they were 25cents each! I took them all! As you can see, I already put them to good use!
2 small and 3 large Crown canning jars with the glass lid. In the pink one I have pickled red onions I made last night, delicious and so easy to make! I cut a red onion that I placed in the jar, I heated 1 cup of white vinegar in the microwave and zapped it for 2 mins, I added some agave syrup to taste and poured the solution on the onions. They were ready to eat in 30 mins. I stored them in the fridge after.
They are great on a salad!
Come back tomorrow as I will blog about a fab flea market for Vintage Thingy Thursday!
