Vintage Cute

Here is one of my favorite finds from this summer.  What fun I had searching for treasures.  Can you guess what these are?
They're made in Japan.
I was told that they're hat stands.  
Pretty cute...huh?

I'll be linking to Vintage Thingy Thursday hosted by Suzanne at Colorado Lady.
I hope you're enjoying the last days of summer.

Sunset on Lake Ontario

The end of summer
Like a sunset
Fading away

I went up for a few days to Niagara on the Lake, Canada with my daughter and her friend.  My best friend from high school met us there and we had a wonderful visit.  So much time has passed by but we're still so comfortable and at ease with one another.   
This year I'm not ready for summer to end.

Arrived in Dublin

I'm not really a city girl.  I love the countryside and its quaint country towns.  Dublin couldn't compare to the lush green rolling hills, the colorful cottages and the emerald sea thrashing against the rocky shores of Ireland's countryside but it was wonderful to visit and learn it's history.  We arrived in Dublin just in time for 10:00  o'clock morning mass.  The mass was beautiful and we were lucky enough to see a choir that was visiting from Norway!  

The rest of the day we walked and bus toured Dublin.  Below are a few of the last pictures we took from our trip to Ireland.  Tomorrow morning we'll fly back home.
