Exploring Historic Grimsby Beach

A couple of weeks ago I took the kids on another little adventure. I stumbled on this blog post from In Search of Sarah about these fabulous colourful houses in a town not too far from where I live.  I packed up the kids and recruited my parents to come with us. We've lived in this area for decades and never knew this little historical area existed. So, I had to share the cuteness with them.  I won't pretend to be a historian and tell you all the amazing things about these houses but suffice to say, they were just as cute in person as they are in the pictures.  You can learn more about these houses here: Grimsby Beach - Visitor Info History and Heritage - Village of Grimsby I LOVED the colour of this home and it was just as fresh looking in person as it is in the photo.

I haven't bought any of these yet (not have I been paid to promote them - in fact these sellers have no clue who I am) but I've had my eye on them for awhile....maybe I'll treat myself, it is Mother's Day tomorrow after all right?

Knot Your Average Scrunchie is an Ancaster, Ontario (Canada) based shop. The grand-daughter and grandmother duo create high quality scrunchies out of the most fabulous fabrics. This oversized cheetah satin is my fave! AND it's under $10 (click here to see). Check out their super cute Instagram page too: @knot.youraveragescrunchie.

Blush Scrunchies is based out of Toronto, Ontario (Canada) and their secret sauce is lengthened fabric for a more full looking scrunchie. I am so in it. The fuller the better IMOP. Also can I just say that I'm loving this red "Sangria Satin" scrunchie?! Check it out here (link).

Soooo you wanna go bigger eh? Well my Google search for "oversized scrunchies" led me this awesome Vancouver, British Columbia based shop, Charlie Paisley. And friends, I think I found the Mecca of all hair accessories. Handmade? Check! Canadian made? Check! Oversized and plush? Check! Check! Naturally derived and biodegradable fabric? Check! Vintage fabrics? Check!

I absolutely love the story of how they came to be, and their mission is quite lovely as well. Read all about it here.
