Farmers' Markets

(all photos above where taken by me at local farmers’ markets)

I love checking out local farmers’ markets, they’re a great way to spend a weekend morning or weekday afternoon either alone or with friends.

There is always great food shopping to be had and even though I do not consider myself to be a “foodie” I always find it interesting talking to the different vendors and learning about what they are selling, they usually have great tips and suggestions on how to prepare the food, which is great for me because I’m not very good in the kitchen!

Another good thing about farmers’ markets is there’s usually always great deals on fresh produce and flowers and if any of you follow me on Instagram you know how much I love my flowers :) Also I love being able to shop local and support local farmers and vendors.

Here is a list of some of my favorite farmers’ markets I like to go to in the Toronto area, if you are not in the Toronto area just google local farmers’ markets in your area.

If you have any questions please leave a comment and thank you for stopping by.
I hope you all have a nice weekend and if you’re Canadian I hope you have a lovely and happy Thanksgiving.

Living in Color, Bohemian Meets Glam

I am so excited to share with you the layout of my feature in My Home Magazine Philippines, October Issue “Living in Color”.

A special thank you to my sister Erin Leydon of Leydon Photography for taking the photos, my very good friend Brittany Higgens for writing the article, Love Ocampo, Editor at My Home Magazine and to My Home Magazine for featuring my home.

Decorating my home is a passion and fun hobby of mine and if I am able to share it and inspire other people that makes me so happy.

Aberfoyle Antique Market

As some of you may know I love antiquing and finding new unique gems for my home.  If any of you follow me on Instagram you have seen my home décor photos #TLhome with a lot of different antiques I’ve found over the years. I think adding antiques or different unique pieces you find at antique or vintage markets adds a touch of personality to your home and there is usually a story attached to them even if the story is just about you going to the market and finding it there.

I recently visited the Aberfoyle Antique Market in Guelph, it is one of my favorite antique markets. It is so big you’re sure to find at least one gem each visit. It goes on every Sunday until Oct 26th.  If you end up missing out on Aberfoyle another favorite antique market I like to go to that is all year round, is the Sunday Antique Market in St. Lawrence Market; I have found a lot of unique items there over the years.  I would also love to go to the St. Jacobs Antiques Market in Waterloo; I have heard it is amazing. I will have to venture out there at some point.

The photos above I took at the Aberfoyle Antique Market just so you can get an idea of the kinds of things you can find there. If you love milk glass as much as I do, it’s a great place to go.

Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions about different antique markets or if you have been to the St. Jacobs Market, in a comment.
I hope you all have a great weekend!
