Some days you step out of the house to run errands,
which sometimes feel like chores not expecting the day to bring you so many lovely unexpected surprises. Although I wasn't properly dressed, the outside flea market season has finally kicked off (actually, it did a few weeks ago. I'm just late). It did get a bit warmer throughout the day and when I reached pointe-claire village, my mother insisted we go into every store on the strip. I rolled my eyes and nodded, knowing only the stores I usually visit have the best finds. Boy, was I ever wrong. I found these mint green espresso cups in a quaint little shop near the end of the strip and they are seriously my favourite buy this year. They have an adorable vintage feel reminiscent of those tin cups you carry when camping. Oh, and they're mint green. Now to create open shelving space in the new house to display them… bring on the DIYs.
We did a final stop at Chapters and I picked up these fabulous glasses made in Portugal as well as Erin Gleeson's new cookbook named after her blog (found here), The Forest Feast. Her recipes are original, simple and a treat for the eyes. I made myself a quick and tasty breakfast this morning following one of her recipes. Cannot wait to make them again for a guest or my fiancé. I'm looking forward to using it more this season with local produce.
I hope you are enjoying the long weekend! xo
