I woke up bright and early to go to the Rose Bowl flea market with three fun friends.
It is so big, varied and overwhelming. I could spend 12 hours peeking around and thousands and thousands of dollars on unique and funky finds.
I found some great treasures, most of which are either secret Christmas presents, need a little (a ton) of refurbishing, or are going to be boutique displays. Keep a look out for them in the future.
What is it about buttons that makes me so happy?
This yo-yo quilt was HUGE!!! As I am making a few dozen of them for hair clips (with a super easy yo-yo maker, mind you) it freaks me out that somebody made this by hand! I hope it finds a really good home.
I loved this little booth. I even splurged on a treat for my girls here. When I excitedly showed Jason he said "you could make that...". Maybe, but sometimes it is just fun for the maker to buy something already made. What I do plan on making is wrap dresses like this one. I have a huge stack of these convenient, yet boring snap shirts that need a little cute-ing up.
If I ever have a boy, you better bet he would be rocking one (or a dozen) of these Star Wars shirts.
I am really regretting not splurging on this set. Milk glass and egg nog? Is there a better combo? I am in the I heart egg nog minority and am impatiently counting down the days until Starbucks brings back the Egg Nog Latte. It is my favorite holiday indulgence.
As if the flea market itself wasn't enough to make yesterday the best day ever, Jason took me on a date to yummy Italian food and the movies.
We saw Fireproof. We are admitted movie brats and went into it with rather low expectations. It might not have the best writing or acting, but it's message is very powerful and amazing. I would truly recommend it, even to the most jaded movie critic. It is an evening's investment worth making.
