Friday's Fab Finds

A friend forwarded me this ad from Craigslist Thurs. evening saying she thought it was right up my alley.

Spinnaker Yacht Club Flea Market/ Open House Friday 1/28, 12-5pm, Saturday 1/29, 9am-3pm, & Sunday 1/30, 9am-1pm. Nautical items- hoses, 1939 47' Vinyard, pumps, rigging, jukebox, teak swim platform, antiques, PORTABOTE, fishing equipment, 1984 Zimmer, 1986 GMC, tools, goretex camouflage hunting suit; goretex dry suit, 1800's vacuum cleaner; 4' telephone/ rotary dial, dingy, sea cycle, & more. 75 Pescador Point (at Marina) San Leandro.

This is Errold.   
 I was taken with his resemblance to the Sea Captain in the classic movie, The Ghost & Mrs. Muir, and took it to be a good omen, which it was!

He recently sold his boat and was having this sale to sell off the remainder of his possessions before he takes off to Florida to begin his "new life".

Here was my Catch of the Day...

I'm thrilled with this vintage bank bag which a friend told me looked very similar to a vintage canvas Hermes bag!

And just as I was about to leave...

This vintage leather linen tape measure caught my eye.  I don't know about you but I've never seen one of these before.

I found a few other things too.
It was a good day, a very good day!

The best part was making a wonderful new friend who I can't wait to introduce you to.

Have a great weekend!

A Baby Shower

For my friend Reichel of Copy Cat Chic!

Her friend Courtney found this charming Tea & Polo Shoppe for her equestrian loving friend to celebrate the big occasion.

She arrived early and set up the tables with flowers  she arranged in vintage tea tins

We played Guess The Date,

 while we drank Mimosa's and introduced ourselves.

We took our seats and were served a delicious light lunch along with several pots of fragrant teas.

We could smell the fresh baked scones which were served with clotted cream, lemon curd, and jam.

Soon it was time to open the gifts.

Reichel used to work at Pottery Barn. You might recognize the pink & white boxes from Pottery Barn Kids.

Reichel was wearing this ribbon during the shower.  Isn't it darling?

Here's her friend Irena indulging in a cupcake after eating the scones!  She's pregnant too!

I think I was the oldest one there!  Several of her girlfriends were from college at UCSB.  She is the first one among them to have a baby!

These gals had to leave a bit early to drive back to Southern California.  They had been staying with Reichel all weekend celebrating.

I got Reichel this set of vintage china.
I'd never seen a set with so many pieces!

 I took a photo to show you before I wrapped it.

She sent us off with this adorable memento!

I'm so excited for Reichel...  did I mention she's having a girl?  They are going to name her Arden!
