Sundays are for long drives in the countryside.

Yesterday we took a look at the leaves and their falling colour

donkeywe found a couple of these looking back.



We stopped at Dunes Cafe for a short little peek. 


We continued on through Brackley Beach


 The fishing shacks all stood empty and the boats were all stopped.


We crossed the causeway to our next little stop.


This is the lighthouse at Dalvay.


At Dalvay Inn the windows are covered and there’s not a soul in site.


 The hills of sand dunes all covered in grass.


 Where the sand meets the sky at Brackley Beach.


The fence and the top of the lighthouse as I look back.


 We take the road to Avonlea with all her colours so bright.


 Zoooooom, past another barn.


 A windmill spins around in the wind.


 I sure would love to craft with the barn board on this barn.


 Cross the causeway at Oyster Bed Bridge.


 A stop off at St. Augustine’s Church. Built in 1838.


 A wave to Judy at the Barachois Inn.  Do you see the white building out behind Judy’s home?

It is the Congregation of Our Lady Convent.  Built in 1881.

Over the hills to North Rustico until we come to a stop.

At  “By the Bay” Restaurant where we met Tabitha, Sydney and Matthew for lunch.

I hope you enjoyed my Sunday and your arm chair travel through the countryside of Prince Edward Island and viewing some of my favourite spots.

Have a wonderful week ahead,

This week the wee little cottage is winding down.  The weather on PEI has been rainy most of the week so the tourists on the Island have been staying away, not to mention it is that time of year when things start to slow down.  

I wanted to share my new find from one of my favourite gift shops here on Prince Edward Island called “New London Joy” my find is a Ridgway tea pot, creamer and milker from the Hayride collection.  Do you like it?  I haven’t had the opportunity to use this in the tea room but I had company over this past week for tea and it got a few oh’s and ah’s.

I love the pattern on the handle of the tea pot.

I found a picture of the Hayride from and I might have to go looking for a couple of tea cups to complete the set. 



In the Scrapbook News,

seems we never make enough of these tags with seaglass on them.  


For our Red Hatters,

I’ve made these lovely pins that look like a bouquet of flowers using red and purple beads and crystals.


Other beaded bouquets



That finishes off, whats in store for the Scrapbook Cottage and Tea Room.

I’m going to join up with Sandi on her blog site HOME where she invites others to a blog party everything home. Be sure to come and visit even if just for an idea or two about cooking, crafting, tea, friends and decor. 


Proverbs 17:22 A joyful heart is good medicine, But a crushed spirit dries up the bones.
Enjoy your weekend, be safe and spend a little time with family.
