September is almost here - Enjoy these last days of Summer!

What have you been up to this last little while? We know lots of you are on the road travelling - to visit Family, to attend Weddings, and simply to travel. it's always nice to go on Vacation...leaving your regular routine, taking off and visiting another city or country. And stopping by the Lake, to enjoy every last bit of summer.

Ever wonder where everyone travels from? These maps at our Ontario Tourist Centres are quite interesting ..tourists place a pin on the map pinpointing where they live. And by the way, whenever you go to a Tourist Centre, always sign their guest book, these are important in funding decisions, and traffic patterns determine whether that tourist centre will be open again next year..  

The joy of checking into a clean Hotel Room - and plopping yourself onto the Bed!

As seen at The Microtel Hotel chain in Sault Ste-Marie - lovely place to stay. They also serve a full breakfast included with your room stay. 

Of course, it's always fun to stop at those little Antique shops along the way. And Yard sales. 

Vintage doorknobs are so chic at the moment.

A stash of bobbins from an old textile mill in Utica, N.Y. Perfect for making Vintage Christmas ornaments. 

Jeanne D'Arc Living style. That Paris pillow reminds you that chintz is always in style. 

As you're driving along, you may see a Farm stand - with Fresh eggs. 

It's great to get Honey directly from the Farm, rather than buying it in the grocery store. 

Lots of barns and stacks of  grass in the fields. 

A quick stop to pick some Queen Anne's lace.

Summer is fun, whether you're driving downtown Toronto, or....

Touring an A-frame recreation of an old house in the 1800's. 

For those Botanical nuts in the Family, a stop at a Plant Conservatory is a must. 

Such a great upcycled Cottage Paint dresser... don't you just love those rope handles on the drawers?
