Today was a grand day for gallavanting. Sunny and hot. I slept in and landed at Rebecca’s Restaurant at 1300. My favorite destination for lunch in Mahone Bay. The menu is always refreshing. I had Sweet Potato soup, Shrimp and mushroom Risotto cakes with a side salad and for dessert traditional Nova Scotia Strawberry Shortcake. It was made with the best tea biscuit I’ve had since my grandmother’s for sure. The new location is brillant. On Edgewater Street, it has loads of parking and seating.
Right Next door there is a newly opened shop, called Sprig Apothecary, it literally had at all my favourite things for sale. Succulents, lotions, beautifying products, and pretty little pots. So I added a little succulent to my growing indoor garden and some beauty products to pamper myself. It was fun, like a day at the spa, my style.
Down the way I stopped at Have A Yarn, and found some new color ways. It’s a new company RavensWood Fibre Co. A local company!
Another new shop on Main is a sweet little interior design shop. Here Nor There. I picked up a seagrass basket, and a macrama plant holder. The plant holder I’ve been ages waiting for and it’s perfect.
I dropped in to Birdsall-Worthington Pottery for a gander and found beautiful hand made earrings.
Finally ended up at Peacocks Antiques and found some awesome vintage clothing, stay tuned for those outfits. Including a perfect birthday dress for July.
I saw a little bird flying with a few sprigs of nesting materials. I was inspired to fix up my own nest.
The past three days have been fabulous. Today I did a lot of fun things. Simple meditative projects that help me reset.
I baked these GF lemon melt-aways.
Puffy Hearts! Making these to brighten up my window:)
My vintage bead collection. You can find a few treasures once in awhile.
Started this jigsaw puzzle. Does anyone else like a good puzzle?
Stitch markers from vintage jewelry. I’ve been collecting these bobbles for ages.
We are so adorable wrapped in this wool blanket. Yes? A beautiful blanket made in PEI. I hung out at The Wool and Tart today. I don’t know what I’d do without these knitters.
I’m about to dine after my felting adventure I had at The Loop. I had a great time making my own masterpiece. My lovely teacher holds up my finished product. I’m starving now.
That’s what I call paradise. Colourful fibres!
I travelled to the Hydrostone Market district today. I heard about a yarn shop and hat seller.
Lady Luck Boutique
LK Yarns had some beautiful yarns and I couldn’t help but take a sampling home with me:
