Sister's Treasues, Saturday's Treasures

Today's post is once again brought to you
by my new go-to camera of choice,
my iPhone 4S.
I'm kinda sorta in love with it,
and also not having to lug around my
heavyweight, big-girl camera everywhere.

I wanted to share some recent pics I snapped
at Betsy and Elaine's space at

Betsy and Elaine are a pair of extremely talented
sisters who do business as
and it's been my privilege to get to know these gals
the past year or so.
Getting to shop their always primo space 
has been an extra special added bonus!

 I hesitated and missed out on this fabulous decoupaged
suitcase made by Betsy.
She assures me more are on the way!

Great stuff, right?
And I was especially fortunate to score these 
most excellent gym lockers below from the
sweet Sister's...

 Be sure to visit Sister's Treasures
 at the next Fbg Trade Days, August 17th-19th.
Be sure to give the gals a hug from me!

On to yesterday's haul!

I seriously considered hitting snooze and sleeping in
yesterday morning, but I knew that my junker's cred
would seriously be in question if I missed yet another
Saturday morning of garage sale-ing.

Thank goodness I hit the garage sale trail!
Behold the loot and swag...

 Dress forms, tiny enamelware,
vintage silver ice bucket, old Mason and Ball jars....

The new gal in our bedroom.

 shiny, shiny, shiny!

Cool old signage, floral tole tray,
utterly fabulous enamelware measuring pitcher.

 Not one, but TWO vintage German dictionaries!
A must have in Fredericksburg, Texas.

And this nifty find....
a combination diary, address book,
and...well, commentary on 1930s life
in one small corner of the world!

Poor Clarence Hocker, apparently dead.
A good reason to always write your contacts
in pencil rather than pen.

And this darling, chippy typewriter table.
Looks right at home in the entry hallway
at the farmhouse.

Have a super duper week.
That's what I plan on doing!

Macro Magic

I recently gifted myself with a macro camera lens,
and I've been having all sorts of fun this past week
playing with it.

It was a used lens, so it didn't cost me a bundle,
but having a macro sure does open up
a whole new world of creative possibilities.

You might not be able to tell,
but each of these objects I've photographed
using the new macro lens
are teeny tiny....REALLY small.

Which makes the clarity all the more impressive.
Yep, a good investment I think.

So ya see,
sometimes when you get up close, really close,
you see things more clearly.

Other times though,
stepping back and walking away
is what it truly takes to put it all in perspective.

See you all later in the week,
and wishing my best friend Tom a very
Happy Birthday Week!

Theresa Cano at Fredericksburg Trade Days!

There is always GREAT shopping
to be had at our local monthly flea market,
but this month, shoppers are in for an extra treat!

The one and only Theresa Cano
is selling in Barn 6, and of course I had
to make a stop over to see my friend Sweet T.

I reluctantly embraced iPhoneography for this post,
as I left my big girl camera at home and snapped all these
with the phone.

LOVE this wide-eyed baby doll!

And I had to grab a bundle of these old letters above
from a World War II serviceman to his mom, 
raving about his new-fangled, circa 1940s camera!

This week marks Theresa and her husband Cruz's
32nd wedding anniversary, so me and the Mister took
 the Cano's out to dinner last night while they are in our town.

Not only that, but today, July 21st, is OUR
5th wedding anniversary!
We could learn a LOT from the Cano's!

{ edited to add this photo from dinner. what a great couple! }

But before I left Theresa's space at Trade Days,
she gifted me with the beautiful daisies you see below...
just 'cause! Thank you Theresa, they have brightened up
my kitchen and make me smile
and think of you each time I pass by.

I hope all of you will make the trip to 
to see Theresa and all our other wonderful vendors
this weekend!
