Thank you for your kind words about Marty. He fully recovered from his sickness after he escaped. Unfortunately, a few days after his recovery he somehow found two Nerf bullets that my son had put in a container with a lid on it! He swallowed both, spat up one and the other one did not come out. My son felt guilty although he had done his best to put away all of his small toys.
He underwent emergency surgery to remove the bullet. It's been a very dicey week with his health. He's wearing a collar and is quiet tender still. The good news is that he's starting to get his energy back and he seems to be on the road to recovery.
I've still been thrifting, but I've been very worried about Marty all week, so I'll try to catch up with my thrifting adventures soon.
All the best,

We had been wanting to go to the One of a Kind Antique Mall in Woodstock, Ont. for some time. It's the biggest antique mall in Canada - or at least Ontario. It did not disappoint. Woodstock is a really pretty town with plenty of old architecture. The antique mall was overwhelming in scope and the prices were very low. Get thee there!
Each piece was less than $5!
Pure Canadian and Quebec honey.
Thanks as always Linda for the lovely comments. You deserve an award for blogging and commenting. Much appreciated! I'm glad you've got a kitty to love.

We were never going to have more than two cats. So how did we end up with four? Find out at the bottom my good friends.
Earlier yesterday, we had gone to look at some kittens up for adoption and fell madly in love with Stella and DJ. Someone had found Stella the day before with her little head stuck in a fence. DJ was getting passed over because he's not a wee kitten anymore. He's a very fun cat and we've never had a black cat before.
So that's how two became four. I hope to have happy updates in the future. Thanks for reading!

My mother pointed out that I mistook George VI for Edward VI! in a recent post for a 1937 coronation glass I recently bought. The correction has been made. I'm afraid I get the royals muddled all the time. It might help if they introduced some new names occasionally - Prince Chester.
Thanks mama. Now back to Downton Abbey.

Every now and then, you hit the jackpot with a garage sale that sells the kind of things you're looking for and the prices are cheap. That was the sale I went to yesterday.
I miss Kodak!
