Garlic scapes and picture frames.

With my girlies in tow Saturday morning, we headed to the farmers market. It's one of our favorite things to do on a Saturday. We also like to hit a few yard sales on the way. I found some real beauties in one stop, I love it when that happens.

 3 large vintage frames, a vintage ship watercolor, and an ugly brass lamp, don't worry I have plans for it.  I paid $10 instead of the $19 asked for all of it! Most of the time, stuff at flea markets and yard sales, is marked up. They expect people to haggle. So do it! The worst that can happen, is they say no.

Farmers market bounty. Aaaahhhhh, I love summer in southern Ontario.
Top to bottom; Apricots, Niagara Peaches, Golden Plums, Garden tomatoes, Black Cherries, wild blueberries, and Garlic Scapes. Wait, garlic scapes, you ask? yes. They are fantastic. We tried them last year, and added them to soups, stir fry. But we liked them most as pesto. Oh yes. In my book pesto is practically perfect. It's license to eat, an otherwise inappropriate amount of garlic! Mmmmm, garlic. The husband may, or may not have a different opinion ;) Recipe to follow soon!


  1. LOOOVE! You always have such wonderful finds. i need to find framed like these!

  2. SHUT THE FRONT DOOR! Those frames are to die for! gah! I saw some at that vintage shop in Greenville (with the weird hours that we didnt get to go to) and they wanted $12 each for the frames. and I thought that was good deal. daaaaang gurl! rock that sale.

  3. Hahaha! tash, you crack me up!

    Heather, check all your awesome thrift stores on Queen st. The most I've paid for one was $25 and it was the huge one that is the chalk board in my kitchen now. I thought it was worth it.
