Barnyard Ornaments

Can you tell where my mind is lately?

I just bought my second Christmas magazine in a week, kind of a record for me : ) The Special Issue of styleathome 100+ Favourite Holiday Ideas is full of inspiration (and I have the same footed mercury glass bowl as displayed on page 20.)

I took a quick trip to Milton, Ontario to visit my favourite coffee and gift shop, The Country Mile. I always stock up on candles and votives there as they have the most awesome scented soy candles. I'm using up the last of my 'fall' scents and colours this week, so I picked up some white 'orange cupcake' scented votives.

The store is decorated beautifully and they are still adding product. There were so many items I would have loved to bring home with me, and I couldn't resist this trio of carved barn animals, a cow, a pig and a sheep. We're off to The Royal this weekend so I'm sure to get even more inspiration there. Wishing you a great weekend.

I'm joining the Potpourri Party at 2805
