Rainy Day in Creemore



Last Friday friends, Jennifer, Judith Marilyn and myself decided to take a little visit to a lovely little village about an hour away called Creemore.  It is a touristy type of town with lots of galleries, quaint shops and lovely places to eat.   Unfortunately, the day was calling for a good downpour.   We got to visit a few of the stores and oogle and google over things.   We were told by a shopkeeper that a good place for lunch was the Affairs Bakery.  I was hooked when I saw that they had butter tarts on the menu.   Lunch was lovely.   I had a delicious stew and nice warming green tea.   Desert was a pumpkin butter tart and I enjoyed every bite.   After lunch Judith and Marilyn headed home but Jennifer and I wanted to take some pictures in the park.  Just as we hauled the cameras out of the bags down came the rain in buckets.   Note the wavery pic on the top right.   I managed between rain bursts to take a couple of the flowers in the park.   On the way back home Jen and I passed a country store in the middle of nowhere.   I made a quick stop and backed up to the front door.   It was full of all kinds of jewelry and scarfs and crafts.  The owner was quite bubbly and friendly.   In the back room we spotted these delicious confections of hats.  We tried them all on.  Well this one on the old girl just took my fancy and I took it home.  Jennifer bought one also in a pale pink.  Maybe she will share it on her blog A Garden of Threads.

Join us for Mosaic Monday at Mary’s.   Have a great last week of September.   Valerie

It has been over 30 years since I visited Creemore. I remember it as a very quiet village with not much in the way of tourist attractions - we could have lunch there, but the place wasn't always open. So nice to catch a glimpse of it after all these years.

It is great that even the rain did not stop you from having fun with your friends. The pumpkin tart sounds delicious. And the hat is pretty on you! Wonderful photos and mosaic. Have a great week!

Hi Val
Marilyn and I wondered how you two were going to get any photos with the rain.
I'm so happy you both have a hat for tea parties now. Guess we better have a Victorian tea and dress to the nines. :-)
Looks like you ladies had a wonderful day weather or not...the mosaic is wonderful.

Days like the one you've shared can be so much fun - even if it rains. It's all about the attitude!

Misty mornings and rain seems to be the norm that Autumn is upon us.

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
