Lodi Street Faire

Good morning everyone, and a happy Tuesday to all. This past weekend we went to a wonderful street faire in Lodi, which is just under an hour drive from us. It was perfect weather, not too hot and not too cold. Lot's and lot's of vendors... We like to go early, this is like about 7ish.... and already busy, believe me by noon it is so crowded.
So many pretty, pretties....Carl calls these "girly things", but there were ....
boy things too. Thank heavens he passed on these, actually they were for sale last year in the same spot. For some reason he was kind of tempted...I have no idea why...must be a guy thing. But he did find a really neat chess set and a nice old paint scrapper... plus a couple of treasures for me for Mother's Day....he was happy.
I found two darling silhouettes and a few other little things, but my best buy was......
these moonstone pieces all for $10. I almost passed on them because I'm running out of room. I hemmed and hawed and finally decided I'd be crazy not to get them. I'm so happy I did...and I did find a perfect little spot for them.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Thank you for all the helpful comments and suggestions regarding my orchids. I'll keep you posted on them and I hope it is always good news.
Until we chat again, happy days to you........a big hug to all, Linda

Funny how I never noticed Moonstone until I saw your collection! Now I see it in shops, but it isn't the same to see one piece. Your groupings make such an impact! From what I've seen, you got a great deal!!!

What a great flea market! I would go nuts! I love, love, love the black and white polka dot silhouette! It is so cute and fun! I am thrilled for you that you found more Moonstone pieces and you got such a great deal on them! I think I might start picking Moonstone up when I see it, I love the your header picture the Moonstone display, it is so pretty!

Hugs, Sharon
