Saturday

Saturday morning we were up very early and headed up to Washougal to attend the first sales event at the new "Flourishes," formerly the site of Willow Nest. We made it there just as they were opening for early sales at 8:00am. Aleta and Bill did a fabulous job decorating the place with all kinds of wonderful things to buy. I took a few pictures of some of my favorite pretties, but of course, forgot to take pictures of my shopping companions (my Mom, Isabel and Jean.) Here we go!

Of course I had to buy a few pretties for myself. Joy helped me pick out this lovely wreath made by The Withies. See the little birdie and my favorite pink roses.I also got this sweet little vintage ice cream box filled with a little assortment of pretty things from Madison Park. The itty bitty bench came from Flourishes. There were lots more things I wanted to buy, but I was trying to be good. After we left Flourishes, we headed on over to the Camas Antique Mall where there was a line of people waiting to get in. They were giving out Easter goodies and had cake and drinks and most booths had sales. Yippee! I only found a few things that I couldn't leave without and this little vintage fabric bear is one of them. I added the ribbon, but isn't she cute modeling my collection of vintage tickings. Actually, I spent a little time the other day going through my tickings as I finally realized I have way too much. The pile in the basket is what I'm keeping, the pile on the left will be heading to Farm Chicks. It was really hard to decide what to keep and what to sell as I really, really love tickings and have been collecting them for a long time..Saturday was very fun day spent laughing and shopping. On Sunday I just hung out at home trying to get a few things done that I have neglected. Monday I did what I do best, thrifting and I have to tell you, it was a great thrifting day. I can't wait to show you what I got, but that will have to wait until my next post. Have a happy Wednesday!

Lisa -
You captured it well. It's amazing that you and I took pictures of some of the same things. I didn't post all of my pictures! It was such fun. Can't wait to see what you bought on Monday.

What a cool shop! In those glass jars, are those silk flowers? Neat idea.

I've got to go through fabrics I've saved, too. I just don't think I'll be able to part with my collection of flour sack material, though. Why? They've been put up for years. I don't have them out, but maybe I will someday. Someday is why.

Thanks for coming by with Joy. We will have to do it again! Great pictures - except the chick with the pinwheels. She needs to loose the tired, brown jacket - HA! xoxo Martha
