Happy Monday everyone! Is that really ever true, is Monday ever a happy day? I’ve decided to extend my wonderful weekend a little further to make my own Monday happier, if you’ll indulge me I’d like to recap this past 2 days with pictures and some reflection.
After some lovely gifts and lots of love from my son Mike, Bud and I went exploring on Mother’s Day. For those of you that know us personally know that this is our favorite thing to do. You just never know what you will find, who you will meet and what will inspire… I was so very emotional to be out exploring yesterday, it made me realize that in our busy lives with renos and getting our house ready to sell we do not do this nearly enough, I missed it more than I knew!
At one point Bud walked on ahead of me and I stood at the top of a beautiful hill and started to cry… it just felt amazing to be surrounded by the simplicity and the complexity of nature, sappy yes, don’t get me wrong, I have not been locked up for the past few months, it was just an awaking for me, to be more creative and to be in touch with yourself you have to go do what you love, for me that’s exploring!
With our back-roads map leading the way we came across the 6th wonder of the Seven wonders of Lanark County. We will have to go back to this lovely place, it was just a pass through and we must explore this beautiful mine!
We then made our way to the village of Westport, Ontario. We have been hearing about this little spot from our friends for a bit, it was about time we finally made it there. We found our selves in a little antique shop (shocking I know) in behind this bed and breakfast, A Victorian Reflection. The little store was immaculate, I will be going back to do a “hunting” feature, because this store deserves more time than I had… here are some pictures and yes we did end up getting goodies, although I left something behind that I will have to get next time… I am kicking myself for not taking a photo of the vintage wooden laundry trolley.
Isn’t that Barbie lunch kit adorable?
This is what we brought home…
I’ll end this post with what I did on Saturday, I am trying to practice with my camera and here are some patina shots, yep another obsession.
Can you recognize what I may have been zoomed in on?
