~my barkcloth Converse shoes & a flea market road trip~

OK you asked to see em..here they are LOL..

Men's size 8, now what Man would wear floral shoes?
I LOVE barkcloth fabric new or old.
Found these years ago

********
2-14" by 16" vintage Provost framed prints $3.00!
flea market finds
2- aqua hand painted rose lamps $4.00!
******
One of my passions is flea market shopping.
Sunday my oldest daughter said to me
"Mom what to go on a road trip?"
I said "Sure Michele where to?"
"She said you'll see..just wear comfy shoes"
so I put on my barkcloth Converse shoes
and was ready for a road trip.
You see my favorite flea market had
re opened this Summer
and I'd not yet been there..
To my surprise that's where our road trip ended.
Yippee!
for only $10.00 I bought
4-zucchinis
4-bell peppers
4-cucumbers
2-pictures
2-lamps..
Time spent with my daughter priceless!

Oh Mary, I love those shoes and lamps, what treasures you have found my friend!!! I needed to drop by and say hello, I'm still here it's just that there has been so much sadness as far as death of friends and loved ones and they are getting younger. WE lost two young people to influenza and it ook us all by surprise. Please pray for the parents of these young people. I know we can get busy, but I wanted to say hello and I think of you often,

Mary what great finds and such a great way to spend some special time with your daughter :) When my daughters were little they loved going "treasure hunting" with me, flea markets...goodness they were up by 5 am and ready to go no complaints and my stars they got some of the best deals with the dealers, they were born hagglers lol Now...not so much :) If I even mention thrift stores they pretend to be asleep :) So lucky you. btw I love your shoes, I have a brand new floral pair of keds that I just had to have. They look like old vinatge material, I have never seen another pair like them...sadly they never fit :) but they sit still lovely in their lil box to remind me to always try things on first :) Rose
