This place is full of the most interesting people and things.
Take Coffee Bug for instance:It's a VW bug. It's a coffee shop. Here's the story:
For whatever reason, most of the vendors have a pretty quirky, off-the-wall sense of humor. It makes for a very pleasant day.

Bobby raised this rock from a pebble the sign reads.

Pretties are abundant as well:

I've been at it really hard since Monday morning. I wasn't gonna go this weekend because I figured the kids would have a hissy fit about it. Surprise, surprise-they wanted to go! I took them to the La Bahia show because it just opened and I hadn't been there yet. I got a little work done and the kids had fun, too.
In my completely biased opinion, the above photo should be featured in the April edition of the magazine.
We all had a ball on the gigantic teeter-totters:
Once I was out of money for ice cream and snow cones, it was time to go home...
See you soon-like tomorrow.

This is us:
This is mini. He's the QB's little brother. What he doesn't have in weight and speed he makes up for in persistence and personality. He even growled at the other team. He's scary.
Football Rocks! (Even when you get your butt kicked)

Drat. So I called Cynthia: "Hey, play hookey tomorrow and go shopping with me." "I can't. It's too busy-I have to go to work." Double Drat. Fine-I'll go by myself. At 7 Friday morning my phone was ringing. I get panicked when my phone rings early or late. I nervously picked up the phone: "Hello?" It was Cynthia. I won't go into details, but I will tell you she went shopping with me! Thank you, God for pink eye (*grin*)! [Note to Shenann-I think it might be wise for you to just go ahead and skip work the next time I ask, the affliction resulting from a 'no' might not be as easy as pink eye-I'm just sayin']
I found lots of goodies:
Prayer box necklace-somebody's gettin' this for Christmas-if you think it might be you, just move on:
Lovely Folk Artsy toothpick Christmas ornaments. Somebody's probably gettin' these too:
Super nifty, super old leather lacing craft kit-we'll be working on these this weekend. Again-somebody's gettin' a cool sum'n, sum'n for Christmas:
I'll use these old aluminum molds for soap (which somebody will be gettin' for Christmas):
I like buttons:
These are some decorations for that "American Legion Hall Chic" look I'll be going for come Christmas:
I'm gonna make an apron-yep, you got it-for somebody for Christmas:
And a Halloween one, too:
And I'm gonna wrap all these glorious treasures in the fabuloso Vintage Wrapping Paper I found. And label it with this Vinage Chalk
JULIA-DON'T LOOK @ THIS:
She's gonna be a (cough) GRANDMA and I am gonna gussy this up for the new baby.
These leather purses were a steal! If I can get the leather cleaned-guess what-yup-somebody's gettin' one for Christmas:
These next things are just fun stuff for me:
These are already gracing my kitchen table.
This is a load of fun stuff-just for kicks:
I found way more than this too! Yes, it as an amazing day. There's also 4 (count 'em, 4) vintage dresses I found that need a little love before they are ready for their blog debut.
There are some awesome sales Saturday morning, but my boys have their first football game. I'll tell you all about it when it's over! Wish us SKILL!

I also found this super groovy polyester shirt-can you dig it? It's pink and green and makes you wanna grow a 'fro.I thought these pieces from a 1950's plastic Christmas village were kinda nifty:I also found an antique mink cape. I didn't put a picture up because I didn't want the PETA people throwing paint at my blog *giggle, giggle, snort*.
This morning my friend Shenann came along for a 30 mile trip in one direction to an estate sale. We ran into some really good sales and besides losing 20 bucks and running over a squirrel (accidentally, of course), it was lots of fun.
I found these lovely vintage rag rugs:
This oh-so-fine pink rose bedspread:Some fabric:These interesting skirt kit things:Piles of really old baby clothes:I am working on cleaning these up-hope it works.
Look at this pot-it rocks:The day is over and the treasures have been cleaned and sorted. I will be listing many of these treasures plus others on Ebay or Etsy soon. We'll see if my hard days work pays off.
