On Tuesday Tom and I headed out to Roots Market for the first time this summer. It's held every Tuesday out in farm country and it's sort of a farmer's market/flea market. This week we were on the lookout for a couple of things for the house; something to hold my collection of vintage umbrellas and a hat/coat rack to put by the front door. We didn't find either of those things but I did end up buying four packs of vintage playing cards with dogwood blossoms on them to use as tag for my Etsy shop items. We also came home with a bag full of fresh fruit to have for breakfast this week. Yummm!

those thread spools really entice me to the many things someone could do with them. are you planning on making any projects with all of them?

Hi the shorts look lovely and I especially like the car window reflection photo, I also want those hats.

That's a very fresh and nice outfit. It's relaxed but you also look so put together as always, love it! AA tri-blend is my favorite fabric at the moment, I can't live without their deep v neck tees these days!
The "reflection picture" is marvellous :-)

glad to see your taste in music extends to early Australian punk! Rob Younger lives down the road from me... They did a benefit gig a couple of years ago and man did I have a blast in the mosh!
