A couple weeks ago, my family was invited to attend a printing demonstration at Black Creek Pioneer Village. (My mother's grandfather originally donated the press back in the 1960's, hence the reason for the invitation.) The press has been restored to it's original 1860's condition and they were printing on it that day as a special event. My mother's family owned and operated a local newspaper, and my mom has often talked about growing up around the newspaper office. It was fantastic is finally get a chance to see this part of my family history.

While we were there, we did the full tour and checked out all the great historical buildings. The house pictured below was my favourite. I wanted to move in!

I didn't take an outfit photo that day, as I've had a wicked cold and wasn't looking my sparkling best. However, I thought I would tack on my work outfit from a couple days ago. It was supposed to be Victorian inspired, but came out a bit more 1930's to my mind.
I hope everyone has a great weekend!
