Another day out.... and more photos.......

I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT HAPPENED TO ALL THE PHOTOS, I WILL DO IT AGAIN FOR TOMORROWS POST AS I DON'T HAVE TIME TO REDO IT THIS MORNING, I AM SORRY


So we decided to take a few hours break from the attic and went to the Spring Cottage Life Show in Mississauga.

There was an auction to raise funds for cancer relief and here are a couple of the Muskoka chairs.
This was about the artist who decorated the chair above.
This one was really pretty.
Here is the info about that artist.
There was a lot about boats and docks, neither are things I am interested in, but liked this display for the colour.
These canoes were just gorgeous and made by Langford Canoes.  The workmanship that went into each of these boats was stunning.  The white one where the people were standing is one inspired by The Hudson Bay.  There is more info about it in the photo below this one.  Those people were there for ages, so I gave up trying to take a photo.
Info on the Hudson Bay Canoe.
I wanted to show you this photo, as the downspout and guttering is all brass and so different.  Not sure how practical it would be but it does look good!!

Must say a lot of the stuff at the show wasn't really for us, but it was an enjoyable few hours.
