Cabin Fever

We're now officially into Spring. Is it just me or has this felt like a really long winter? Fortunately for us though we did manage to break our hibernation a few weeks ago, and we were rewarded with some really great finds at some really great prices. Many antique stores find the Jan-Mar period absolutely dead, and so they hold "Cabin Fever Sales", where they take 30-70% off their prices. Of course when you leave the big city, you find even better bargains. A few weeks ago, we spent a pleasant afternoon driving around rural Ontario. We made our way to the Waterford Antique Market and found some really great deals. We then went to The Classic Vault Emporium in beautiful St George Ontario.

Here are the things we came home with:
A hand stitched Baby quilt from Waterford. We thought this would look great hung on the wall of the cottage. And for less than $30, it costs much less than a decent piece of art.

These vintage Pyrex mixing bowls also came from the Waterford Antique market.

We found some Fiestaware occasional pieces, from Classic Vault Emporium. These will go with our Fiestaware place settings, of various colours.
