Wonderland, house warming and antique's

What in the world is this well of course it is a string holder , you know doesn't everyone have a few of these around the house, so funny , I have never seen these before , they are quite charming , some were quite pricey this one was $45 but they went up to $95 so I passed today when I saw it at the antique market , we stopped at my favourite place to shop and favourite place to go for an outing ever on the way home from Todd's sisters house warming party a couple of hours away , we all had a great time and got a break from our dogs for the night and had a lot of laughs.
The Aberfoyle Antique market , it is the oldest outdoor antique market , it is so fun to scour the vendor's wares, lots of great deals , it is never a good idea to go there with out a good deal of storage space , you never know what you will find. This long weekend for us was quite a busy and fun filled one , Friday we went to Canada's Wonderland a big theme park full of roller coasters which the kids are finally brave enough and big enough to ride , it was a great day of trying new things for our children , when darkness came the park was truly magical like a carnival the kids loved it , it really is a different place at night , we will be going back very soon when the weather cools, 90 degrees was a bit hot for big lineups but we had a fun filled day despite my poor choice of foot wear, should have worn the good flip flops.
Off to the market then:
Wouldn't that make the nicest island?
Yard sticks , lots of yard sticks.
Lovely old lounge chairs in need of new covers.

Sophie's treasure was an old shedding toy dog for $4.00.
This table has my name written all over it , $35 can see it now after a coat or two of paint.
They had tons of these sea horses , wouldn't they look great painted aqua???
Look a fishing rod holder , isn't that the creepiest thing you have ever seen , its hoofs, yucky yuck yuck.

I really need to take more pictures of our trips , but I like to enjoy them without a camera in my face .
Mason after a 50 minute wait in line , she will not do that again , she said it wasn't worth it , too slow. I had to take a picture of these deserts ,I knew you would want to see them too, I have seen them on blogs but never had one , don't know what they are called , anyone know?? they are great , and so pretty all lined up , they are basically little cake bites with fillings all different flavours, these were from Tracy and Andrew's house warming party , remember the mudroom makeover it was their mudroom , the house is well broken in now and looks great , congrats guys.
