Little French Flea Market

As I have said before fall has always been my favorite time of the year... I make homemade soups, chicken and dumplings and I bake and bake and bake:) Cozier comforters come out of the closet, hot chocolate and fires in the fireplace, I feel as if I am feathering my little nest for the foggy cooler nights to come.

This is just a peek of my booth at The Little French Flea Market in Tarzana Ca. The day started out very wet and cold... but by the end of the day the sun was finally out... Thank goodness!!! This event was held at the Tarzana Cultural Center which is a lovely little park in the middle of the hustle and bustle of this little city in the valley and is actually named after Tarzan from the old movies. This was the first Little French Flea Market held here.

I met so many lovely vendors and customers:) My booth was looking a little bare at this point... I found many new homes for the sweet little treasures I had. Though it was a very long day it was a lot of fun... Oh and of coarse I had to buy some new treasures for my little nest:)

Thanks for stopping by....

Sweet Nature

I went out to my garden to take a picture of my garden and all of a sudden I heard the
humming of a Hummingbird. I hope you all can see the refection of the Hummingbird on my bird feeder.
It was a perfect split second, after I took the picture the Hummingbird came right up to me as to say did
you get the picture?? It is one of those moments that do not always come along when you have a camera:)

Today has been very cool and overcast with an occasional sprinkle.... Not good at all for all the painting
I have to do before next Saturday!!!! It is so damp out I might have to start painting my sweet little
treasures in the family room..... Its coming down to crunch time for the The Little French Flea Market!!
Last Saturday it was so hot that it was too hot to paint!!! Such odd weather for my sweet little town
by the seashore!!

Thanks for dropping by and spending a little time with me:)

Cheers for now

Fall has arrived here...Well at least our fall as it is here in Ventura....
I have been passing this mailbox for 3 years now as I drive home from Lake Casitas where I row
and I finally remembered to bring my camera to take a picture:)
I love the color of the mailbox well what is left of the color:) It reminds me of Robin egg blue.

I have been very busy getting ready for The Little French Flea Market. It is on Saturday October 23rd in Tarzana Ca. I am so excited to be part of this show!!! I need some days that are not as wet as we have been having and just a little sun so I can finish all the painting... I found some REALLY sweet items..
I am still working on my online store, it will be very very soon!!!

Cheers for now:)
