WORKSHOP in Fort Erie

Through the years we’ve gone to many WORKSHOPS. That is to say, my husband works and I shop. Whether a flight across the ocean to Europe or an adventure out west to Seattle, or it could be a cottage on Lake Huron or a condo in Florida, my husband will be painting for family or friends while I have an opportunity to go shopping.

On a recent workshop in Fort Erie, Ontario–my first time there–I enjoyed touring the town of quaint cottages with my dear friend Maria; some people have summer homes and others live there all year ’round. A charming section of Ridgeway has some lovely stores. I also love to support local shops and Canadian companies.

Crystal Beach is empty at the moment because it’s winter, but it will be a blur of bodies in the summertime.

Happy Valentine’s

Linking up at FANCY FRIDAY

      So glad you like it! I appreciate your lovely compliments! My pink jacket is made without feathers or down. It is very lightweight and warm, made by an ethical company SAVE THE DUCK – a company that cares about animals and our environment.

      100% ANIMAL FREE Outwear – “We replaced goose down with state-of-the-art technology, PLUMTECH®: it is warmer, more breathable and lighter. We have a daily commitment: to improve the sustainability of our company in full respect of the animals, the environment in which they live and the people who live there.”

      On these blustery Canadian winter days, I’m very glad to have this jacket. 🙂

      I thought of you with all the lovely Valentines decorating that you do!💕💕💕 The shops and restaurants were decorated for Valentines and remnants of Christmas garland. Some people still have their Christmas lights on at night (as we do too) it makes winter more bearable! I love Christmastime! ❤️
