PRELOVED FURNITURE: Local vintage and restored furniture shops

By happenstance, I discovered a host of niffty local shops.  These are vintage or home businesses that sells home decor accessories and upcycled/repurposed/ restored furniture.   Each piece is unique and one of a kind.  Some of the shops also offer custom made furniture from reclaimed wood.

Lately, rustic and industrial design are taking cover of all home design magazines .  I really like what I'm seeing.  My only wish is to have a room to call my own, to decorate it with all these beautiful treasures.  Each room in my house is spoken for and all of our furnitures are still somewhat new.  My kids did put a scratch here, a dent there, but they're not bad enough.  I need to speed it up :-)  I hope in a year or 2 we can refurnish our home with new pieces of furniture.  While waiting for that "plan" to come into fruition, I pass time by browsing these and other restorative sites; to feast my eyes upon pretty things, and to daydream :-) imagining the house, the room, the space where the furniture will live in.  Yes, my other favourite pass time is browsing realtor.ca, for character houses :-)  I will write a post on that later !

today's highlight:  The sun was out since 6am and the weather is warm, not hot.  Kaila and I planted our vegetable garden.  We planted peas, green beans, and spinach.
