They once were beautiful

As most of you know, I have a place in my heart for these heritage homes that are getting demolished in Vancouver, at an alarming rate.  I've learned that it's a matter of acceptance about where our city has decided to go, there are a lot of factors that go into the decision of keeping heritage in our city ~ I speak mostly of the homes and I understand where it's at.  HOWEVER just because it's out of my hands, I still can't sit there and watch it happen so I've teamed up with Caroline Adderson who has started a Facebook Page {Vancouver Vanishes}, please go to the page and "Like it".  Together we have decided to document the homes on the West side that are slated for demo, take pictures of both the interior and exterior of each home.  Most are ripped apart but you can still see the beauty left behind in others.

Every once in awhile we find the coolest trinkets along the way, my find: an old toast holder and an adorable set of pink tea cups (a set of four)  These will do quite nicely in my collection, what else is there to do but make a batch of these Earl Grey cookies.  You can find the recipe {HERE}
