HELLO BLOGLAND!

LIFE IS GOOD! But.... I miss blogging.


The month of March was spectacular! 
The Vintage Marketplace moved to a new location, and it was a success. Loved visiting with old friends and new ones. 
The next event is June 3rd and 4th. 


The Sunday after the event my friend Kerri and I decided to go to Driving Miz Daisy. My favorite flea market....
I love small flea markets. 
You get in and get out in less then 3 hours. Friendly vendors and great prices. 

I purchased few smalls that I adore! 
A jar with the most gorgeous lid!
I am in love with red and yellow right now.

An adorable enamel pitcher, perfect for the kitchen.

.....and three tiny PINK jars!

Ciao for now

LAMPSHADE PROJECT

This past weekend it rained in So. California. I love the rain for so many reasons and one in particular. I get to work on detailed projects indoor. This last weekend I started decorating a lampshade. I wanted to incorporate solder pieces and lace. It's not complete and I am looking for a stand or a lamp at the moment. 
I can't wait to show you the entire piece!.
