A Week Off & A Road Trip

A lot has happened this past week on Saturday we had a new addition to the family arrive.  My cousin and his wife had a baby boy who I can't wait to go visit since it's been many years since we've had a baby to fuss over.  They decided to wait till the baby was born to find out the sex which I totally supported, I've been looking at some baby stuff now we can shop.

My Finds 

The above items are some of my finds in the last few weeks,  The Beatle's lunch kit is a reproduction which I'm sure is the only way I could have afforded it.  The orange pattern vase is made by Poole in England it's the second one I have the first one was a gift from a friend so she started this collection.  The green mugs are also made in England by Biltons.

His Finds For Me

My husband found these Fire King mugs for me at the flea market last week. 
Some times he has some great finds it's very rare he has a total miss.
He hit it out of the park with this find.

So this past week I had the week off but the husband only got Tuesday off  so I ended up doing things on my own.  The above pictures are from a new local store here in Abbotsford I love to visit.  All the sellers have great items and ideas as you can see in the above pictures.  If you are ever in Abbotsford I encourage you to visit The Market  and other stores on Montrose  Avenue.

On the one day my husband had off we hit the road and did a road trip within an hour and a half of home the pictures above are from this road trip.  We started off in Chilliwack stopping in at the second hand stores.  Then we went to  Harrison, British Columbia for an ice cream cone and sat on a bench taking in the views.  Our next stop was at the Kilby historic site.  We also stopped in at the Kenmode Wild Berry Wines in Dewdney, British Columbia so I could pick up two bottles of the apple wine they make that I like.

Our last stop before heading home was at the Westminster Abbey In Mission, British Columbia which houses a community of Benedictine monks.
The Abbey was built in 1939 it's official name is the Abbey of Saint Joseph of Westminster.

These pictures are from the husband 's family albums and just made me think of summer.

  1. Hi Denise,

    Isn't it wonderful to have a helpful husband? You found so many beautiful blues. Isn’t it fun finding blues to share?

    Happy Blue Monday!

  2. Denise, That looks like terrific stores to visit in Abbotsford. Glad you were able to add to the collection. Thanks for sharing. Sylvia D

  3. I love the Fire King mugs, they bring back memories of when we sold them in the grocery store where I worked and using them at home. Lots of good finds, especially the Beatles lunch box (sigh) another great memory of the Fab Four.
    Very nice that your husband will go day tripping and you covered many places.
    Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday Denise.
