Flea Market Fun

On Saturday my mom, my Aunt Leigh and I went to the Cleveland Flea Market.  

It was very enjoyable to see all of the treasures that ranged from vintage findings to handmade items.

At times it felt like a big scavenger hunt with no specific objective but it was fun the whole time.

While we were eating lunch a neat band called 28-North played.  I thought they rocked and it was amusing to see the drummer struggling to stay in front of the sign in the wind.

These are two neat things my mom spotted on the way home, the first is a really old tuxedo rental sign and the second is an interesting library.  The library looked closed but it was intriguing because the building was unusually thin and the door had the words public library carved into the stone above it, I was just happy to see the building looking in good shape and not falling apart.

These were my final spoils for the day;
A navy blue polka-dotted drop waist dress, some overall shorts, a red polka-dotted collared shirt, an old avengers comic book, a pack of Batman trading cards (with bubblegum! (that I won't eat because it's probably really old..), two old Charles Dickens books, and a book of scores by Schubert.

I had a spectacular time hanging out with my mom and my Aunt this weekend and I can't wait to go to the next one!  
Final consensus, flea markets are super rad.

My Disarray of Photo's.

Hello everyone who reads my blog,
I'm sorry I've been neglecting my blogging duties the past couple of months.  To make up for it I've made you all a collaboration of photos that I've taken since my last post.  They are all pretty random, but I hope you enjoy them anyway!

These are some roses my grandpa and his barbershop quartet brought my mom and I when they sang for us.  They are just the sweetest group of men, and they have great voices too!

Here are some flowered bracelets Aunt Leigh and I made.

Tea from when I went to a tea party/tour at Carol's house with my lovely book club girls.

This isn't very artsy or anything but I think it's pretty hilarious!  This is Rini with her cat-yoga mat. (which is fabric filled with highly concentrated catnip which make the cat's go insane!)

Here are some more shots that I took at Aunt Leigh's house.  I think her typewriter is just about the coolest thing ever.  And I thought the flowers looked kind of neat when I put them on top of the plate I used for paint the night before.

This one was actually sort of an accident, I was setting up the tripod to videotape a duet that my friend and I play together and this happened, I thought it was kind of a cool photo.

Here is a little mouse that made it's way into our house, and a deer with its antlers.

And then there's the world's most adorable and fluffy dog, Henry.  He was waiting at the door for my mom to come home because she's his favorite.

Well I hope you enjoyed this disarray of photos that I've been collecting for a while now.  Hopefully I'll have something up for you again by next month!
