We were hoping to hit all our favourites before mid afternoon...
I have lots of "stuff" so I am very particular what I bring home.
These blue suede shoes were in such great shape with very little wear that I opted to take them home.
I think they'll be a nice change from ballet flats with my boyfriend jeans.
Cole Haan is a reputable maker of quality leather goods so there is very little risk involved...
besides the fact that the price was about the same as a grande latte from Starbucks!
I realized that I have a Dior mens shirt in the exact same shade of blue which is tunic length
add a strand or two of pearls and some leggings and I'm good to go.

Lovely daughter found all kinds of mid century moderne treasures...
she is contemplating starting up an etsy shoppe.
She and my BFF's daughter are friends and they rented a stall at a local vintage market to test the market.
There seems to be quite the demand for Danish teak, West German pottery, Finnish and Swedish glassware
among the younger generation.
Several shops focusing exclusively on this era have popped up and seem to be doing a healthy business.

I did find a book to keep here in The Humble Bungalow for our grand daughter Isla to read when she visits.
These "beginner books" are a great way to introduce reading and colour concepts.
Isla knows her colours and is happy to count out loud
build tall towers with blocks
(before knocking them down and giggling!)
and loves to sit and have a story read to her.
Grammy decided that it is prudent to always have a stash of juice, goldfish crackers and fruit leather on hand.
You never know when that sweet red head will pop by for a visit.

Chester has been quite well behaved and patient with her despite just being a kitten himself.
Which of course is a huge relief as one never knows how animals will behave around busy little children.
Pepper on the other hand just finds a place to hunker down and go to sleep.
I wonder if there is a Go Cat Go book...
I'll post more about the birthday weekend next time.
Do you have any favourite children's books?
I would love to hear from you
Isla will be turning 3 in June and her Grammy does love books.
