Vintage Finds

Yesterday I was running some errands and due to some traffic problems in the local neighborhood I had to take a side street. Well, let me tell you...there was a guy putting up a sign for an estate sale. I stopped and asked when the sale was going to start...mind you I really don't do this type of thing. He offered me a presale look! Look at my goodies!
A pay dirt in vintage lace and 2 French books.

Look at this hankie lot! 30 TOTAL! My lucky day!
On one of my International trips to Finland in July was a memorable one for several occasions. One of the occasions, the group was taking a meeting break...touring their version of farmer's market. The sweet peas tasted like just popped open the kernel and ate the peas! The flowers were so vibrant! Their growing season is actually longer than ours...with 24 hours of day light. I did have a huge adjustment to the 24 hours of day light when trying to sleep.
I guess I should start keeping a journal on my blog posts of my travels and stories.

Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving such wonderful comments! Wishing you a wonderful Friday!
