Well, it worked! Mr. Thisupcycledlife managed to make a hanging fruit basket – here it is hanging in a corner of my dining area – no nagging required!
Aren’t these pretty? They were sent to me by my youngest son for Mother’s Day! I think under the instruction of his lovely, lovely girlfriend.
The quest for the perfect coffee table has ended! I scoured all the second-hand stores in my area because my budget didn’t allow for a new one – or so I thought. However, I was wrong! I found the perfect thing at Ikea for … $25.00. Just my luck they were having a sale this weekend. Here’s the old one – it worked great in my old house, but in this smaller space, it was just too long
I often forget that it really is the simple things in life that bring the most pleasure. Last week these beautiful little flowers showed up along my driveway and have given me great pleasure evey time I step out of my house.
Yesterday, we decided to go to the little fishing village of Steveston to buy our prawns – freshly caught from the fishing boats.
It was a perfect day – sunshine, blue sky, not too hot. We wandered around the second-hand stores looking for a coffee table – still looking for that perfect coffee table that will fit in my tiny living room – no luck so far. We stopped at our favourite little restaurant for a breakfast of egg and sausage on an English muffin before spending some more time in the second-hand book store and shops that had unique little knick-knacks before indulging in double chocolate gelato and mini doughnuts.
On the way back from buying our prawns, we stopped in at the deli and bought beautiful Portugese sausage and baguettes, then 2 bottles of our favourite apple wine.
Back at home, we indulged in a glass of wine and a light lunch of the Portugese sausage and cheese on the fresh baguettes outside in the sunshine.
After a short nap, supper that evening was fresh prawns and penne in an Italian sauce and, of course, another glass of apple wine!
