Warm, Sunny Spring Days And Finds

Warm sunny Spring weather has finally come to the Fraser Valley in British Columbia this past weekend.  We did some wedding stuff which I'll tell you about later and some yard work.

This is my first Corgi model car it's a Mercedes Benz 300 SL it has a few scratches but it fits in my collection nicely. Corgi is a English company and my car was made in Great Britain.

This bowl is Franciscan Ware which was made in California in the United States.  I found it at a second hand store.  I added some brooches to add color and a feeling of Spring.

This paperweight is another addition to my collection.
I saw these Fire King mugs on a cart when they were wheeling it out onto the floor at my favourite second hand store.  I made a beeline for the cart and scooped them up.

I use this cloth holder to hold a pen, a paper pad and papers in my purse so they're easier to find.

Wedding Update:

I'm thinking of doing a hairstyle like the above one if I find the right 50's style dress.
Image was found on Goggle Image.  

The last two weekends we have spent doing two gift registries for the wedding. The first store which I'm not going to name was not a great experience thanks to a computer and scanner that did not work very well though one of the clerks was trying to be helpful.  This nightmare took almost 3 hours and by that time we had one page of items.

This past Saturday was a totally different experience.  We went to the  Hudson's Bay the clerk there  was helpful and did the computer part for us and the scanner was easy to use and they had a better selection. If your doing a gift registry I totally recommend them.

The Dahlia's in the above pictures are what they had on the bins  that I got the tubers from.  I'm planting some and others we are handing out to family and friends to grow for the wedding.

Thank you for taking the time to visit.
