I heart summer holidays...


Isla was given the opportunity to choose three marbles when we went to the Antique Store on Pender Island.
This large blue one, another in green and a smaller blue one which she gave to her brother Henry.


Milada Huk from Renaissance Studios on Pender Island designs and makes jewellery using Swarovsky crystals.
This necklace caught Isla's eye...
it is called Fairy Garden.
Grammy was delighted when she saw how Isla swooned when she spied this piece so we bought it!



Grampa found this stone heart on Hamilton Beach near Port Browning.
Isla took it home.


Beach treasures!



In dire need of a pedicure after a week at the cottage.
Days filled with swimming, hop scotch, beach combing, games, boating,
and other fun activities.


I posted this picture on my Instagram page...
"when your breakfast matches the book cover" 
it makes for an easy photo opportunity!


A parting gift from the family...


Two thrift shop finds from the Nu-To -You shop.
Tennesmed desigend Swedish pewter pendant 
Danish bird pin.

This Summer the weather has been fabulous...
sunny and warm
actually 
HOT!

Thank you for popping by The Humble Bungalow Blog.

  1. It sounds as though you are having a lovely time! And what a lot of great finds - plus your granddaughter has good taste!
    I got to read "The Seagull" this week and really enjoyed it! I've watched the "Vera" series but for some reason had never read any of the books - I will go back and work my way through some of the other. I also picked up the Mitford Murders at the library but it's not holding my interest as much as I'd hoped. I think perhaps the fact that I've read so much about the Mitford sisters - and books by them - that I'm finding it difficult to have them as part of this fictional story.
    Enjoy your vacation.

  3. Oh, that Danish bird pin is stunning! You have found some great things this week and Isla fairy garden is a lovely piece of special jewellery for a little girl's collection. Pender Island seems to be the most magical place.

    1. Pender is quite quaint in many ways...it encourages one to commune with nature and live simply.

    1. The two weeks are almost over and it always feels a wee bit sad when we have to pack up and leave...its the kind of restorative holiday that we crave from time to time.

  10. Enjoying the summer sun, sea, and sand. Nothing better. Nice finds. Sounds like you share interests with your grand daughter...walking the beach looking for treasures along the way and purchasing beautifully crafted jewelry. Sounds like perfection! Susan
