Ventura Flea Market "The end of another chapter in my life"
Anyone who knows me will tell you I have delt with a lot of changes in my life. As a young wife and mom, I didn't always adjust well to change, but with prayer and God's help I now bounce back and go on.
Saturday, my friend and I cleaned out and closed our booth at an antique store. It was a little sad for me but a relief too as I hadn't had the time to put into it I should have. We took everything out to Ventura Flea Market on Sunday. It was a beautiful (hot) day and I had friends with booths on either side.
This is Cindy . She has her own design business, called JCee Designs. She had some great treasures, but I didn't get a good picture to show off those.
A few pictures of my friend Ruth's and my booth. (didn't get a picture of her, she said it's just as well)The weather was unseasonably hot for being right next to the ocean and we were all feeling a little wilted. The bed in photo above is a vintage1930-40's crib with the bedding made from 30's reproduction fabrics. I made the bedding several years ago for another vintage crib Gail had .
My good friend Suzanne from Notes from the Patch and her husband Bill stopped by to say hello. She got the cutest necklace at the show made from a scrabble tile. Check out her blog. A couple of other friends came by also that had purchased these necklaces. What a clever idea. Why can't I think of these things. I really intended to walk down to the booth to see what all the excitement was about, but it was just too dang hot to get myself motivated to move that much.
Anyway on to the next chapter. For several months now, I have wanted to spend more time on my love of sewing. All kinds of sewing: Home Decor, Quilting, Cute clothes and other things for my grandkids and quilting. I also have for a long time wanted to start a childrens line of clothing made from Vintage Linens. This has been a secret dream of mine for some time and don't know when or if it will come about, but a girl can dream can't she.
