Thanksgiving Weekend

Thanksgiving weekend ~ we had a fantastic weekend in the Distillery district in Corktown in Toronto I just love the warm hue's in this old dodge great colour's for Autumn....

Blooming cabbage flowers I don't have the botanical name for these but think they are just gorgeous.

My dream is to one day own a Vespa! Although at 7 months pregnant...I don't think its wise at the moment.

I had been meaning to head into my local tea shop for a while  now & finally got there on Saturday & found a very refreshing tea : Jessie's tea - Lavender & Coconut so warming! & caffeine free

A delicious Pumpkin Pie...loving pumpkins at the moment & they are everywhere here at the moment for Thanksgiving.

My new purchase Sew Serendipity by Kay Whitt.....I found this book in my local Chapters & really looking forward to starting some new projects.

These photos were taken inside the Soma Chocolate shop in the Distillery District...I highly recommend trying the Mayan Hot Chocolate : Mayan Hot Chocolate dry mix: spiced with Ginger, Madagascar Vanilla, Orange Peel, Chilli and blend of spices
