drinking glass

i have found a few of these vintage shaker glasses at resale shops for under a dollar.  they are a nice size and very sturdy, perfect to use for a nice tall glass of ice water.

it's a date

i found this vintage calendar and thought it would make a nice date book.  my mother-in-law always had the same calendar from the 60's hanging on her frig.  she wrote birthdays and anniversaries etc. on the dates, the days of the week didn't match of course but it worked.  i love the photos in this calendar.  it's a keeper. 


can't forget this date.

there are only a few colored photos, love this one.

ahhh... this even looks good right now. we could use a little cool weather right now, but i don't think i'll mark this record breaking heat in the calendar.

booth with a view

this is where i was able to set-up for the vintage find and flea show on sunday.  could it have been any better?

my very nice husband helped me out tons getting the items to the event, appreciate it!!!
 it was tempting to go sit in one of the adirondack chairs for day. thankfully rick didn't decide to do this.  

banner look familiar?  my son kyle and his girlfriend julie came by to visit, it was so nice to see them.  he might have been checking to see if the banner sold......

there were lovely tall trees to shade the area, it only got warm when the sun was overhead around noon.

but it wasn't hot enough to roast this marshmallow.

 a tiki bar was open during the event.

it even has vintage decorations.

my "checkout" here - capitol view to the left of the tree.  it was a great day, so many nice folks, fun to chat with them about vintage, collections, how certain items brought back good memories. i heard one lady on the phone telling someone it was a  fun day, she really enjoyed it.  and she mentioned it to me again as she walked by.

 everyone was so happy to get outside as it was the first nice day in awhile. we had 3 days in a row of over 100.  we have been experiencing the heat like a good majority of the country. 

Naomi from glitter workshop ran the event and Kim from
 persimon dreams helped out to make sure everyone was ok during the move-in. it was great to meet them as they were very welcoming. kim even ran home to blog about the event while it was going on and she snapped a photo of my booth : ) thanks!

the next vintage event "the craft-apple-ar"  how cute is that, is at kim's family orchard
lapacek orchard 
 on august 24th.  
another great venue for a great event!

thanks to everyone that i meet, it was a fun day!

sunday fun

hope to see you at the vintage flea and finds on sunday.  

should be fun, i am giving it a go at selling.  
i went to the spring show and they had great vendors.  I know pamm from fresh eggs will be there again.  she always has great stuff and her displays makes you want to buy it all. 

 it should be cooler on sunday which is great since i will be outside.  

so come on out, and there is no lake view charge which includes the skyline of beautiful downtown madison!
