an early start

well here goes, my 1st ever post! what better to start with than to fill you in on my regular trip to the Sunday local markets. just a quick 5 minute drive and i'm there. it really is the highlight of my week! i'm there by 6:20am- earlier in Summer though. it's still dark at 6am this time of year, so i figure there's no use being there at that time when i can't see what's on the tables and in the boxes!
i usually meet up with a good friend of mine, where we do one round, head off for our coffee stop, then mosey back for another one or two rounds in case we've missed something! it's amazing what we find 2nd and 3rd time round. i didn't find alot this morning, but came across this sweet little white wicker basket for $2. and you can just never have too many baskets. it will end up filled with stationary or my girls textas i would guess. a few stalls up from there were the pair of crystal napkin rings. now they made my heart skip a beat or 2! i found them in the bottom of a glass jug. $3 for the pair. the pretty pink chenille type fabric will meet up with my huge stash of pink and rosey fabrics, and may one day end up in a quilt. it was $2. the canvas Witchery slipons will get a beating- hardly used and a tiny $1! and i can never walk past the stall of strawberries. how perfect do these look?! my eldest daughter has already popped some into her morning smoothie.
i hope you enjoy your Sunday too :) Kate
