Armed with $25.00. I have to set a limit, cause I have been know to go crazy. My friend Tracey by my side and coffee. We set off to do some damage at our little flea market. It comparison to flea markets around the country, it is small. No, not small, tiny. If I do say so myself I didn't do to bad. See below.
But the highlight of my day was getting to meet Miaja. I recognized her from her blog picture.We have chatted online , but never met in person.So I boldly introduced myself. She is so delightful and I'm so happy to have have met in person.



When I got home from the flea market this had come in the mail. I was one of the winners from Lani's giveaway. If you have never visited her site. It is a must see. Her work is beautiful. I'm now the proud owner of one of those wonderful pieces. I couldn't seem to get a shot of this without a glare. Do go to her site. Her pictures are better.
