my week in pictures

not mine I "stole" them from Lisa and her instragram account
This past week with the first hints of spring I made it a point to get out to and do some things I neglected all winter. First off I finally got around to meeting Lisa from butterflies and daisies vintage we meet on Osbourne at little sister coffee maker. If you can find yourself a table it is the nicest place to have coffee and meet up. I drink tea but luckily Lisa got a coffee and was able to showcase what gorgeous drink they serve.
While I was spring cleaning I found a few butterfly and daisy related items which I gave to Lisa and my purse found a new good vintage loving home! We hit up a few vintage shops (vintage in the village and the Osbourne antique mall) I came home empty handed but it was really nice to meet a person you feel like you stalk in person Lisa was great.
I decided to treat myself to a few things from the new Jenna Rae Cakes bakery. I can't make macaroons to save my life so anytime I know of a place that is close by I will pick some up. These are definitely the prettiest I have seen! I love imperial cookies as well so I like to test out versions for every bakery I visit. I will certainly be back closer to my birthday to treat myself again.
I didn't have much luck in the thrifting dept. This week I picked up a few thank you cards that were yellow and had roses what else could I ask for?
What do others like to do when spring first comes?
