The Pinery Antique Flea Market is located in beautiful Grand Bend on the shores of Lake Huron in Southwestern Ontario Canada. It all started in the 1960s with a few antique vendors and has grown to be a cornucopia of vendors from craftsman to food, antiques to clothing and everything in between.
Once you pass through the parking gates your senses immediately go into overload with the aromas wafting from the food vendors, music, signs, antiques and unique pieces of art everywhere.
The vintage coin operated rides and shows have been refurbished and work like they did in the good ole days.
The selection of food is divine, from fresh cut fries, baked good, deep fried pickles (my fav) to fresh fruit, veggies and more.... much much more!
most of the vendors are nestled beneath beautiful towering oak trees.
There is so much to see, plan to spend several hours.
The Pinery Antique Flea Market is open Sundays only 8-4 from May to Thanksgiving weekend. If you're visiting Ontario, wear comfy shoes and bring a bathing suit, across the street are the beautiful beaches of Grand Bend.
It's been raining almost everyday for 2 weeks here in South Western Ontario and the cold damp weather although good for the grass is a complete mood changer for me.
I need sunshine to charge my batteries, sunshine gives me energy and makes me feel more alive. Mother nature, if you're listening, bring on the sunshine and warm spring breezes.
It's March break in my area and these are easy to make, fun & festive Oreo Pops.

#nofilterI've always been an early riser, a bright and cheerful morning person that's me, although it annoys almost everyone. My dad is an early riser, always has been and my mom, quite opposite, 10am is her morning.
Sometimes the world rewards us morning people with a surprise, this mornings sunrise is absolutely stunning. It's going to be a wonderful day! #nofilter
I have to pinch myself, it's November 6th and it's 17c (63f) outside, the sun is shining and the birds are chirping........ I could get used to this :)
