 There is nothing like a day trip out of the city to inspire.

Last weekend one of my Found collaborators and I headed over the border to do a bit of shopping and to check out Ellicottville NY.

Just south of Buffalo the landscape changed. A fresh snowfall had transformed the older windy highway we chose into a classic 1941 Christmas card.

Trees hung heavy with snow, white picket fences and old barns were just covered- it was gorgeous.

We stopped for lunch on our way, a spot near Springville- the cutest little town ever. These houses were just a few of the many lining the main street- could you die?!

Springville has a lovely old movie theatre (with a current movie playing), and a bowling alley to keep you busy.

It also has this historical museum- check out the unexpected paint palette. A salmon door with green/blue two tone trim- so spot on.



This modest 6 bedroom home was for sale $164900. You can’t buy a 500 square foot condo in Toronto for that.

Check out some of the realtor’s interior pics…

 The kitchen sort of reminded me of one that belongs to our friend Michael Penny- same vibe- a bit of paint, la voila.


Here is Michael’s again, photography by Donna Griffith.

It was a great day, we made it to Ellicottville, sat by an outdoor fire and refreshed with coffee and treats- Skiing would have to wait for another weekend.
