A Very Wet Day
We are used to rain here on the BC coast but the rain we have had these past 24 hours has been phenomenal. And it was today that my daughter and I went to browse in the lovely shops that I only go to at this time of the year and only with this daughter. We had a fun time. She was actually looking for Christmas gifts while I was just there to admire all the pretties. The shop pictured below was in an old house and had kept the various rooms as is and filled them with amazing "stuff". Under what was the stairs to the second floor they had a cute kid's area. The picture doesn't do it justice. That ceiling... that is a giant chalkboard.
The pictures of the shop were taken with my daughter's phone because I had forgotten my camera.
Here is just one of the displays inside.
That shopping was this morning and after lunch I went to the thrift store where the prices are more to my budget. I do like a 'new' purse and this one was three dollars.
The other treasure I found was these two cups ( which didn't have saucers). I love how the plain outside belies the gorgeous insides.
The Daffodil cup is by Paragon and the other one is Foley. They both have slightly scalloped edges and gold trim. I am happy to add them to my collection!
Now it is late afternoon and time to think of supper. Soup sounds like a good idea. Must go chop vegetables.
I hope your week is going well. Granny Marigold
