Date day…with some Cowboy…

So what’s a perfect Saturday?  Driving through the backroads of Alberta finding garage sales, country and antique stores.

We found so many treasures.  We love decorating our house in a style we both love and lucky it’s very similar.

There was a stop at a cute little barn conversion that is a antique store where we found an old milk can, a set of gorgeous dishes for everyday, some pyrex, a quilt rack, an antique laundry clothes hanger and some other bits and bobs.

Remember when I said I wanted a set of dishes that were stoneware or something that but that we could use everyday.  BOOM.


When the pantry is done we will have a crazy big mudroom/laundry room so we picked up this vintage clothes line to use in the room.  How cool is this?


Then we went to the Carvel General store where I found this sign.

It’s a repo and totally modern but I LOVE IT and I had to have it.  It’s already hanging in my kitchen.  We also got a cute set of his/hers hooks for our robes in our bedroom.


No kids today but we took our sweet Molly with us.  She was very happy to have Cowboy home.


Then at the end of the day we stopped at the Warburg Hutterite colony to buy a big ass slab of bacon.  It’s a crazy good deal because you can cut the bacon as thick as you want it and its the BEST bacon out there.  I really don’t know why people don’t eat local more.  There are producer putting out fantastic local product if you just take the time to look for it.  Sure you can buy crappy bacon cheaper at Walmart, but WHY would you want to.   THIS is what I want to feed my family.  Where i know who raised it, who killed it, what it ate.   It’s important to me to feed my family like this….I think more people should be doing it.  Plus Cowboy was home and he can cut it perfectly….

    I am trying to decorate my home the same way– with things I love that I just pick up here and there.
    I want your bacon!
