Roadtrip: St.Jacobs

by - Thursday, May 13, 2010

Thanks all for chiming in about the wallpaper!  We're still a while away from that stage of decorating but its fun to hear what you all think. 

HandyMan and I took a daytrip recently to St.Jacobs, Ontario.  If you've never been, its a perfect getaway from the big city, a little village filled with antique and salvage stores, a huge farmer's market, Amish bakeries, and ice cream shops.  What more could you ask for!  

We have a thing for architectural salvage shops and have been wanting to go back to St.Jacobs to visit Artefacts, one of our favourites. We found lots of treasures (sorry for the quality of the iPhone pics)... like these doors with interesting trims and glass...


lovely lighting...

and these encaustic tiles from the floors of old Egyptian cafes.  Someone buy them please!  They were so gorgeous - perfect for an entryway or outdoor patio.


But we really came for were these... bits of filigree and decorative trim.

Remember these vintage doll bed and vanity we inherited?  Yes, we still haven't done anything with them!  But now that we have some decorative trim to gussy them up, maybe we might be motivated.
