I have been on the search for an old wicker artillery basket for over a decade (not that they don’t exist but that the price is always too much). You see, a good twelve years [Read More...]

October 2nd, 2012

Nothing like a sunny Sunday, when the summer weather is holding on past its September 22 sell-by date. Of course it is best spent daytripping while we can still enjoy a roadtrip. I just spent [Read More...]

Taking a back road into Blenheim, Ontario (shopping for sweet cherries for this summer’s batch of sweet cherry jam), I noticed this old schoolhouse, falling into ruin of course. It still has the separate doors [Read More...]

Mill 4

One of my favourite summer tasks at the office (day job) is shooting gardens. There is something really magical about getting to a location just before sunrise and quietly capturing a gardens beauty. A great landscape [Read More...]

 One of the best things about summer drives, whether you are day-tripping or on a longer vacation road trip, are the gorgeous country houses you see on the way. And I have to admit, sad [Read More...]

There is nothing like a lazy afternoon on a porch swing …. or so I would guess. As someone with neither a porch nor a swing, this is all dreaming on my part. You see, [Read More...]

… Can you blame me?

May 18th, 2012

Spring and summer mean more road trips, and road trips mean more spying of country properties. It is a slippery slope, next thing you know I am trolling real estate websites and arranging viewings. But [Read More...]

I love shutters, both working and just decorating, both inside the house and on its exterior, crisp and modern or old and covered in paint. They are one of the first things I gravitate to [Read More...]

 Sunday… Country drive + good friend + blue sky + amazing barn full of goodies + spring kittens = perfect day

old country house

 Up on a rise on old Hwy 14 lives this sad yellow brick farmhouse. It doesn’t take much to imagine the charm it must have had in its day, the red corner coins and eyebrow [Read More...]

Post Office Facade

My sister-in-law recently sold her beloved cottage in New York State and as much as I’m going to miss it, I have to say I’m also really going to miss the charming little towns we’d [Read More...]

house with wreaths

 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 [Read More...]

Something that always makes me smile when out for a day in the country antiquing are the various signs you come across. It doesn’t matter if I’m directed to an old barn sale or a [Read More...]

December 30th, 2011

There is nothing as fresh and pretty as a old clapboard house painted white and blanketed in snow. This heartbreaker has an extra 51 acres of farmland to go with the old farmhouse. Modest in [Read More...]

Forget It’s a Wonderful Life. For me, Christmas in Connecticut is perhaps the best of the bunch in terms of Christmas movies (it centres on a food journalist who writes of happy days spent cooking [Read More...]

Yesterday I did what most families do this time of year… travel. Not too far, but far enough on a school night with the kids. Christmas dinner with my husband’s family. Driving out of the [Read More...]

Snow may be flying tomorrow so this may be a last opportunity for a heartbreak house not covered in the white stuff. Exploring this old timer was a little bit of a scare, as someone [Read More...]

  Perhaps my recent roadtrip to Collonges-de-Rouge, France has opened my eyes just a tiny bit more to red brick beauties. I’ve been watching this sad lovely get sadder every year but this fall I [Read More...]

pump with sign

It’s almost Halloween, and around my house that means costumes and décor. I know orange and black are hard to live with, and I have to admit for the past few years I’ve resisted the [Read More...]

Have you ever imagined a red sandstone village in the south of France? It was certainly a surprise to me. I have always thought of grey and taupe stone farmhouses with pale blue-green shutters. But [Read More...]

Corlac Today

Okay, so I shouldn’t imply I own a house in the south of France. But even just one week in an old stone farmhouse like this can truly be called living. A recent vacation took [Read More...]

Our first Found Picker, Tommy Smythe, spent a few sunny Sundays at some country flea markets to get us the goods to sell. While we are thrilled with the things he found, we also think [Read More...]

old house 89/2

I’ve found a new favourite … if you can have a favourite heartbreak, that sounds maudlin. But while driving old Hwy 89 on my way to Bayfield, Ontario (for a lovely lunch at The Little [Read More...]

August 22nd, 2011

A recent Sunday spent junking, on old Highway 2 between Brighton and Grafton, yielded an unexpected little gem. Roadside I spied a handmade sign saying something to the effect of “stuff for sale in the [Read More...]

In blogging for another site, I shared my favourite falling down house with readers, an old farmhouse on The Talbot Trail (Hwy 3, between London and Chatham, Ontario). I compared it with the house in [Read More...]

   I’m a big fan of quilts, always have been. What’s not to love right? They are useful and cozy, have history and are sometimes artisanal (if you’re lucky). I think my love began when [Read More...]

Blame Bionic Woman Jaimie Sommers. At the perfectly impressionable age of 12, I fell in love with Jaimie’s apartment, the refurbished barn loft on the ranch belonging to The Six Million Dollar Man. Jump cut [Read More...]
