HORSESHOE

Project 365 Photos: #74

I’ve been informed that an upside down horseshoe will drain all your luck away. I was pretty lucky that my friend pointed out this beautiful old horseshoe, so I’d have to say, “nah nah nah nah nah,” to all the bad luck faeries.

 

It’s an Etsy Christmas encore…

Who doesn’t love Etsy? It’s a mecca of amazement designed especially for all you Christmas gift hunter-gatherers out there. I’ve been trolling the site looking for gift ideas and just thought I’d share these little treasures…

Have a very Etsy Christmas…

I’m a Christmas junky, and proud of it! I’ve been pouring over the magical Christmas kingdom of Etsyland this morning, and I want to share my findings! (Someone really should confiscate my computer) I’m blown away by all the Christmas goodness out there…

I just adore this crocheted-star garland from Namolio

Who can resist a vintage stamp with their name on it for stamping gift cards? Not me…so I ordered it from ISpyVintage

These mini branch pencil crayons by INKKIT are just flat-out COOL.

If I had my act together, I’d wrap gifts in kraft paper and ribbon with these exquisite gift tags by Indelible Impressions

I’m a sucker for anything blue and turquoise and vintage and glass and Christmas ball, like these mercury glass ornaments from Bohemian Lil.

Scout about it…

I’m a huge fan of Birch & Bird and the vintage handmade markets they hold every few months. My gal pals, Kim & Ann, joined me for the preview event for Scout Market last night in Abbotsford, BC. It was a love fest for all things vintage and fabulous. We nibbled on delicious cheese and cupcakes, sipped lovely wine and coveted EVERYTHING we saw. The market is running all day today. If you get a chance to drop in, I’d highly recommend it!

Dear September, I love you.

I know. I know. I gush about each new season as it comes, but trust me, this is one of the best month’s ever! It’s all about new possibilities and hunkering down for the winter with visions of chicken stew and dumplings, gingerbread pudding and cozy evenings with the fireplace on (Who am I kidding? It’s gonna be dinners gulped down before rugby practices. Wading through closets looking for riding boots. Getting home in time for tutors. Driving to pick up kids at the indoor pool!!!).

One of the best things about September is the plethora of fall fairs and harvest markets! Who can resist those butternut squash, or the canning jars of golden ripe peaches? I defy you not to buy a box of ripe field heirloom tomatoes!

I’m really looking forward to the Fieldstone Vintage Market about an hour from where I live–out among the lush farmlands in the Fraser Valley, BC. I’d like to thank Jodi, over at The Simply Inspired Home, for posting about this amazing market. Hopefully I’ll see her and  some of my blogger friends out there!
