April Markets...

Besides being a perfectly beautiful month...April is a wonderful month for markets...antiques & vintage...flower & farmers markets here on the west coast. We went to four different markets last week...all filled with fresh antique & vintage finds...beautiful flowers...locally grown fruits & local artisan breads. The antique & vintage markets were both lined with tents and were very crowded...almost every buyer seemed to have a cart or wagon to carry their finds, the aisles were very's always fun & interesting to see everyone's choices...everything from lucite chairs to 18th c gilded mirrors. I was very lucky to find a pair of very large vintage architectural metal crowns at my first stop...I love them...they are perfect for a project I am working on this month....I was stopped several times on my way out by buyers wanting to purchase...:)) On my second stop, I found an antique wood horse that had been in a family for is a beautiful piece of folk art...I have fotos of both the crowns & the horse below as well as other finds. At the flower & farmers market, I purchased several large bouquets, as many as I could carry, of Snowball flowers in a vibrant green...they are definitely a statement flower especially when used en masse...they were the focal point for a wine & cheese tasting at Rue 27 Maison this weekend. Sharing with you a few glimpses into my week & wishing each of you a beautiful coming week...
