 Check out this impressive Pyrex collection from a vendor at Finnegan's Market in Hudson, Québec! Can you spot an especially valuable piece within?
This celery green "drippings" container is a rare one because of it's colour!

Rose Study

 The fruity scent wafting through the warm breeze the other evening made me drop everything I was doing and head outside to draw the lush roses. This is how I work in surface pattern design.

Thrifted Books

Here we have a lovely selection of literature, all $0.50 each from garage sales!
Jusqu'à Nos Jours is a Canadian French textbook of selected French authors' short stories. Yay for keeping up the French usage, plus the cover is a surface pattern design dream!
The Mayor of Casterbridge, a classic by Thomas Hardy, has been on my reading list since I read Far from the Madding Crowd. Also, the cover art is stunning!
L.M. Montgomery is the Queen of Heartwarming Descriptions and my favourite author. The Road to Yesterday is a compilation of some of her short stories, and this page at the front offers some highly suggested reading!

Love Lock

This photo was taken by my inspiring friend and sister in Christ, Anni.
"I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge--that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus
throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen."
Ephesians 3:16-21

Vintage Green Lunch Box

I bought this cute lunch box at a garage sale for $1! I would estimate that it is from the 1940s. 
Aside from the rusty bottom, it is still in great condition!
