Well Joy & Dale have their boat in a slip down in Long Beach~ right by the Queen Mary. So this Sunday, the guys hung out at the boat, while Joy and I hit the Flea Market.
Can you say "SCORE!" ?? :)
We did. Each of us found EXACTLY what we were looking for ~ and then some. I can't show it all to you . . . but ~
Take a gander at some of my haul . . .
Glass buttons, vintage rhinestone buttons and jewelry pieces ~ sigh.
German Glass Buttons that are exquisite ~ yup ~ I paid that price UGH!
A little bag of "different" buttons. One needs LOTS of buttons for projects.
I know - I'm anal . . . I came home and immediately went thru each
piece and wrapped it around a tag and placed it in bag.
I hate it when my stuff gets dusty . . . And this way I can still see it at a glance.
This hat is flippin' TO! DIE! FOR! Vintage VELVET flowers!
Tons of them! And yes, I paid an arm and leg for it . . .
After walking a million miles for several hours ~ we drove down to the boat and met the guys.
There was so much traffic and so many people. We couldn't figure it out until we saw the sign. Guess what was held at Long Beach yesterday? The Gay Pride Parade. Interesting . . . I'd never seen a man in "drag" in person before. Hmmmm . . .
It was cold and foggy - we had a glass of wine at the boat, walked over to a great restaurant and had a wonderful late lunch of oysters on the half shell and three types of fresh fish, walked back to the boat, packed it up, and headed home.
It was the perfect day. Well . . . it could've been sunny ~ but that's OK. Good times with great friends . . . life is good.
This morning it is more of the same - but the fog is so thick it's actually drizzling.
Southern California's June Gloom is here early.
What's it like in your neck of the woods?
Have a wonderful week everyone . . .
