Oh No! More Dishes

These are my love-birds.It was a beautiful day all across Ontario yesterday. The trilliums were at their best. We headed up to the Log Farm to do some junkin'. My plan was to purchase a china cabinet, the mother of all china cabinets because I have so many gorgeous dishes to display. But, oh no! Nothing bigger than what I already own and lots of pretty dishes to add to my collection.I found these glasses that I decided would make great dessert cups. They are circa 1880-1930 and they are called Carnival Glass. I thought they would look nice in my dining-room so I had to have them. NOT THE PLAN!

It was too nice a day to stay in and all my cat-sitting was done for the morning so we headed out with Kane for a hike. This dog actually smiles when he is out running loose in the bush. Being a herding dog he keeps us in view at all times and we trust him to never take off. He hasn't disappointed us in 9 years. GOOD DOG!

Just look at that smile.....No, not dog's. Cute eh!


  1. Ooh I love those carnival glasses. Such a beautiful color. Oh I miss the trillium's used to see them in Oregon and even in TN growing up. Lovely pictures. Marla

  2. I love your smile and your dogs! What a lovely day you had. I know the feeling of oops I bought dishes again...happened to me yesterday. Nothing as special as that carnival glass though, beautiful! Hope you are having a wonderful Monday!

  3. The glasses are really nice. Glad you got them.
    Both of your smiles are wonderful. We love herding dogs around here. There is one that lives here and she never gets more than 2 inches away from our Mom.
    Have a great week.

  4. Sounds like a great day! Junking is one of my FAVE things to do, I look for vintage clothes. And the hike looked like so much fun!
