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.

In The Garden and Finds

 This past week has been weird around my place I have not had time to hit any stores though I saw a new store I can't wait to check out but won't be able to do so till next Friday.  Hopefully I will be able to tell you about it on my next post.  On Saturday I had most of my family over for dinner it was a good time which always makes all the work involved worth it.

I'm only sharing one of my new paperweights today.  This one is by Selkirk made in Scotland it's a limited edition 229/450.

I took a walk around the yard this week and snapped  the pictures of my flowers above. 

My husband and I both liked the covered stoneware dish above we can't make out the makers name but it was made in Japan.  A friend of mine believes the vase the flowers are in is End Of The Day Glass the vase I inherited from my husbands mother once we got together.

I found the large amber jar a couple of weeks ago and I went downstairs and dug the smaller one out of a box I had it stored in I found the smaller one quite awhile back.

These mugs look like Fire King but have no marks I haven't had time to figure out who the maker is yet.
I like the colors and the design on them so when I saw them I knew they needed to come home with me.

You may be wondering why I have a picture of the Good Year blimp in this post but it's because on Friday August 07th to the 9th 2015 was the Abbotsford Airshow.  I have watched planes fly over the different homes I've lived in for decades but have never attended the airshow I would like to but I don't like crowds much and it's very crowded plus I burn so easy so I have not attempted it.  My dad's cousin took this picture as you can see it had quite a audience as it hovered over a farmers field there's another picture that shows cars way down the road stopped.
