I know, another weekend post?! What is up with that?! Well I have most of the week’s worth of posts pre-scheduled and I took another spontaneous trip this weekend to the local flea market. Not a lot to do around my neighbourhood, I was up super early (oh the curse of fibromyalgia) and the weather this weekend has been stunning so I decided to go again and check it out.
The farmers were there with their produce and even some local-made preserves! I thought since I had been to the market the week before I would not come home with any more treasures. I am really not wanting any more “stuff” but the treasures I got last week were so great and this week…
I spent less than $10 and got some cool glasses, two small handmade ceramic dishes and steak knives from England. I love serving desserts in unusual glasses and thought this would be fun. The more rectangle glasses are perfect for layered desserts. I have found a fabulous recipe for Halloween Hot Chocolate that would look great in them too.
Yes, I said HALLOWEEN!!! That is my favourite time of year and I have the most fun in the kitchen coming up with ghoulish treats. If you are new to my blog, check out everything I made for Halloween last year. I have already ordered some pretty amazing Halloween molds and I am getting fantastic books of the library to help with inspiring ideas.
Still, I am enjoying the fruits of summer, quite literally. This is the most delicious time of year.
Hope you are having a fantastic weekend! Would love to hear what you have been up to!
Looks like you found some more cool items at the flea market. I know it’s crazy, but we’re also getting very excited about Halloween as well, the kids are already planning their costumes, and I think I’m going to have to hit the library as well, and get some fun and ghoulish foodie ideas.
Already excited about Halloween festivities too!
Great loot today at the market!

Sorry got excited just with the thought of Hallowe’en food.
Halloween is my FAVOURITE holiday. I even prefer it to Christmas!! I bookmarked your Halloween section in anticipation:):)
