New Found Treasures!!

I went to a fabulous, much anticipated craft fair this weekend. It's always so much fun with yard sales everywhere - lining the streets on both sides. I look forward to the promise of excitement each year with lots of traffic and people while the scent of funnel cakes and kettle corn fill the air! Of course there are all of the fabulous vendors in the park and I love to wander through the crowds checking out each of the booths. There is always one that will catch my eye and be my favorite. I will look forward to the next year in hopes that that vendor will return. This year did not disappoint. As I was walking, I came upon a treasure trove of eye candy. The kind of place where you can't stop ooh-ing and ahhh-ing over every single item and you want to take home one of everything. I only wish that I had remembered to bring my camera to take pictures of everything she had so that I could show you all of her goodies. The good news is, she has a blog! Her name is Lydia and you can go here to pay her a visit.

I spent a quick few minutes looking at her things on Saturday, but didn't have enough time to stay and make a purchase. I did however return yesterday and brought home several wonderful things! The adorable cloche pictured above was one of the lovelies that I came home with. Loved the fluted edges of the glass!
These adorable glittered animals were among my favorites! I loved the shade of blue here...

and of course I could not resist this stork

or this one either.
Now, mind you, we have no idea yet whether the baby is a boy or a girl but for some reason I was drawn to this pink. Hmmmm...

So cute!!

I hope you all had a wonderful, peace filled weekend and don't forget to enter my giveaway if you haven't already. Just go here and leave me a comment. Giveaway ends tomorrow at midnight. I'll draw a name Wednesday morning!!

Good luck everyone and have a blessed day.

Now, go and visit Lydia!
