I couldn't resist this cute little butter pat at an antiques store we stumbled upon.
This is my second butter pat, and this one is a lovely soft yellow colour. Labeled Petal Ware by Grindley and made in England. Oh how I wish they had more. This one was a bit pricey for my liking at $3.50 Cdn as my first butter pat only cost 75 cents.
My sister-in-law and I were on our way back from a trip to Guelph, Ontario for a great fabric sale that wasn't so great after all. On the way home we spotted an antiques store in the tiny town of Rockwood. We would have missed it except for spotting some vintage finds on the narrow sidewalk. These are the four items I was most interested in but they were out of my comfortable price range. My sil was also eyeing the little white iron stand and imagining towel or quilts rolled up in it, but neither of us had room for it in any of our bathrooms.
It was fun poking around the different little rooms and seeing some treasures that were similar to ones we already owned. And having a fun day with my sister in love.
We are home from a lovely and relaxing little holiday with family and spending time on a few projects this week. Do you enjoy stumbling upon little shops on your travels?
