I can't tell you how much fun it was to spend a bit of time with Laura on Friday morning. I took everyone to a cafe downtown for capuccino and hot chocolate and a chat. Then we headed off to share with my new friends a few of my favourite places.
At the top of the list was my Salvation Army store, of course.

I was SO happy for Laura because she was able to find a few vintage French books (usually very rare) and the kicker was that it was 50% off day! What luck!
Then it was off down the street to look at some antique shops.
Our last stop on that street was the fabulous L'Atelier du Presbytere, full of vintage French linen goodness.
Laura bought a gorgeous bag here that was sewn by the charming owner of the shop, from a vintage linen dress. I am sure Laura will be posting about it soon on her blog so do stop by and visit her.
I can't tell you how thrilled I was to meet with such a lovely, talented and warm kindred spirit in person, that I got to know through blogging. Laura, we will definitely be getting together again sometime, perhaps to go to a flea market...?
