Tiger's Eye Sumac and Hydrangea
 This weekend was a smorgasbord of activity!  Do you ever experience anything similiar ~ a small nibble of this & a sampling of that?

We did some antiquing where I found this enamel pitcher.  I've been looking for one for quite some time now.

I ended up paying $22 for this pitcher.  I don't know ... is that a  good price?  I have nothing to compare to because I haven't spotted one all summer during our outings.

Some "Crown" jars.

Asking price was $4/each but I snagged the set of three for $10.00.

And a weekend visit from Hub's youngest daughter who came to show us her new car!
How fun ~ 18 years old, getting her very first car and it's a totally cool Volkswagen Beetle!

I also starting working on putting my garden to bed for the winter.  

  We also enjoyed a brief visit to the Toronto Zoo.

This was by far the cutest wee monkey that we saw ~ our friend's daughter Scarlett!

Hub's daughters!

Add in a Chinese food dinner and a movie night and you've got yourself some weekend fun!

Cheers ~ Lisa


  1. That looks like fun! We can't wait to take our daughter to the zoo next year. I hear they're open 364 days a year and that a membership is definitely worth it.

  2. What great finds, love the glass jars! Looks like you had a fun weekend! I drove past the Toronto Zoo today and on Sunday...great zoo! As for your hubs daughters car, she is going to love it! I have had mine since 2000 and it still looks brand new!(Black) CNDZ BUG....So fun!!! I am saving it for my daughter , she's 12.5 yrs and giving it to her, then I will buy another new one probably convertible next time!!!


  3. Sounds like a wonderful weekend. I love the enamel pitcher! The blue bug is fabulous, my daughter wants one !

  4. I love weekends like that...
    your jars and pitcher are so pretty.
    I agree , that is the cutest little monkey ever:)
    have a great night!

  5. Hi Lisa!!
    I just adore your crown glasses! I haven't seen any like those before-So cute!!! You found some great finds and it looks like you had a great time at the zoo!! Love your daughters car!!! I had a beetle for my very first car too- except it was a 1970's ish version and always left me high and dry on the side of the road!!! Aye... it was so darn cute, though!!!! :)

  6. Wow busy weekend! Love the enamel jug and crown jars. Good pricing too. Cute car-did she let you take it for a spin?

  7. What a weekend! Great finds, great fun, and a great car! I can't wait to see your pitcher filled with a bouquet - It is beautiful. My next car will be a bug. Thanks for sharing.


  8. Sounds like you had a great weekend. I like the pitcher- not sure about the prices for pitchers, but $22 dollars does not seem unreasonable. I especially like the crown jars. I like anything with a turquoise cast!

  9. What a fun weekend! You got some great finds! Especially love the pitcher!

  10. Now, that's my kind of weekend! Hope you're having as good a week!

  11. Sounds like an extra fun weekend. Your flowers have to go to bed now, but they will return----they look like they were beautiful. My hubby and I had a blue volkswagen when we were young with two youngsters. Have a great day.

  12. I love the pitcher and jars. Sounds like a weekend of bliss~ Chinese food, antiquing, family!

  13. looks like you had a fun weekend - I think the pitcher and the jars were great finds

  14. Lisa, your gardens never cease to amaze me! Even in preparation for winter, they are still gorgeous. That hydrangea has the perfect coloring....

    If you ever happen to venture to Connecticut from Canada, please let me know. I could use a green thumb for the day :)

    Sounds like you had a great weekend with family.

  15. Hi Sweet Lisa, thank you so much for always stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. I'm finally able to jump around and meet everyone. I love your blog! On this post my fav. is the crown jars..I could use those in my booth...anything with a crown flys out the door. As for the enamelware pitcher...you got a deal compared to here.

Anyway girl...thanks again...I'm a follower..and I'm going to add you to my side bar!! xokathee

  17. Hi Lisa,
    What fun! I love the VW Bug! I have always wanted a white one; maybe someday. I really like the enamel pitcher. I have a cup which I use in the bathroom. I must try and remember to share it sometime. Thanks for sharing and have a lovely day.



Many thanks for your comments!
