A whole lotta Sunday....

How was everyone's weekend? Typical Sunday, here...well, sort of. The chores are no longer a Sunday thing. We grabbed some coffee this morning and headed out into the sun to visit the Flea Market (just a teeny, local market...but still found some fab little goodies to bring home)...and then we headed over to Stanley Park for a Cherry Blossom Talk & Walk (sounds dorky, I know...) A group of people met in the park for Cherry Blossom festival month here in Van, and a really knowledgable, fairly entertaining guy led us around and we learned about cherry trees and other trees alike....very cute...the weather was fab and we learned that the cherry blossoms (which weren't out yet) will be out by next weekend, and that we should have a picnic then. So we are gonna do just that! he he....The streets of Van really are awesome right now, with all the trees blooming...I'll get pics later this week! For now, some flowers from the park: Not the best pics, but it's Spring...yay! =) Here are our goodies from the market...love them!
.....is it just me, or do Flea markets make anyone else want to buy everything and go start an antique store?? he he....at least I know Z would be cool with that....he's as bad as me with the collecting-of-old-stuff....=)

Speaking of old stuff, I am super-excited to have a teense of spending money for crafty things and so I found these wonderful shops in my travels today: vintage dictionary pages from Sushi Pot Parts and yummy trim from Sassy Bella Boutique...And who doesn't love 16 cent envelopes from the Paper Mill Store? Perfect for the Etsy shop....I just finished designing up some cards, I just have to get them printed then away we go! yay! Etsy is so fun! =)

What Else? We totally missed Earth Hour on Saturday...Doh! We heard on the news a few hours after, you think they would've advertised it more, I feel bad!! I would've turned the power off for an hour, gladly! We're going to see Sweeney Todd and Atonement on cheap double-feature Tuesday, so to hold us over we rented "Thumbsucker", "Bottle Rocket", and "The Kite Runner"...all good in their own ways...I finished reading "Man Crazy" by Joyce Carol Oates...wanting to read "Old Country For old Men" for more psychology of it, beyond what the movie had...Wanting to sew some rag quilts...Can't stop listening to "Chasing Pavements" by Adele. Freaking awesome song! I haven't scrapped forever, in fact, it wasn't an artsy weekend...I'm not sure where to start with what I want to do...lol...hopefully it'll be a happy mail week and my mojo will come back! =) he he

Anyways, happy new week! Hope everyone's was sunday was equally random and chill. =)

Sounds like an incredible Sunday! Cherry tree blossoms have been out for a few weeks here already. I'm pretty sure I took pictures back in February... I love your flea market finds and great shopping links.

I heard about turning off the power but forgot about it by Saturday. Luckily I was turning off any lights that weren't needed anyway.

Hope you have a wonderful time watching yummy movies on Tuesday!

Love your flea market treats :) We don't have flea markets like you do in Australia. Mostly plants and produce at my monthly markets. I love visiting my family in PA and hitting the markets!! :)

Hope you enjoy Sweeney Todd! I really liked it, and felt that it was truly Burton-y, along the lines of Sleepy Hollow.

Love the little collectibles - they are pretty cute. And your monster art work was great. We will give you a call tonight - Waynes mom stayed an extra day longer because of the weather yesterday so I taught her traditional quilting and she made a pillow. It was a fun day!! And your boy initiated two (not one - but two) craft projects over the weekend!!!

sounds like you had a great weekend. I so want to come up to Van!! I too went to a flea market this weekend. I think it does count as being "artsy"
