Today's find!

So today I went on a quick trip to Lois Lane, our vintage store, that is more like something you would see off of Horders!!!   It is a beautiful shop in an old warehouse...that holds plenty of treasures.   I got a beautiful old milk jug and this sifter!   Although they look like a second hand find - they are you know what that means...$$$.  However, look at how beautiful it is.   So I had to come home, wash it up and bake something!!!  Ted has been asking for banana bread for some that is what I I'm trying to clean out my freezer - and the banana's have overtaken all the door space ;-))

Today I travelled to Penticton to take some photos of beautiful Maksi.  She was an absolute joy to photograph in the new tutu, her aunty Jes made her.   Maksi's beautiful freckled face was so fresh and full of life...after the shoot was done she jumped in the pool with her tutu cute!  Trash the TUTU!!!!
