Oh. My. Gosh.
What a fun day Saturday was!!

A day of shopping beautiful booths filled to the brim
with treasures and inspiration.

A day of laughing and smiling

of reconnecting with friends
& meeting some new friends too.

'Mes Amis' was absolutely fantastic!

I got up early Saturday morning
tanked up on coffee,
had my toast with peanut butter and honey
for some power shopping stamina
headed to Roseville!

I arrived to the antique faire already in full swing!

Shoppers everywhere you looked
and treasure upon treasure too!

There was even live music.

I know I got at least a dozen fantastic ideas from these creative folks selling
and found a couple treasures to bring home myself.

Sandy had her adorable trailer parked at center stage

& she had the most darling little
'Blogger' and 'Vendor' buttons that she made for everyone.
I will treasure mine Sandy!

I chatted away with Michelle of 'Summer Cottage Antiques'
Soo much fun to see her again!
(We didn't get a picture Michelle!!)

I also found Jacque of 'Old Soul Studios'
and Betsy and her mom from

My friend Heather was selling with Lisa who just started blogging as well
Lisa writes 'Treasure Broker'

All in all- the day was just amazing.
Sandy did a fantastic job!
She is already planning the Spring show-
so mark your calendars now-
you won't want to miss it!
Great people. Great finds and great fun!

I'll share a couple trinkets I picked up soon~
I think I might have also picked up my daughters bug
that she brought home from school last week
So it begins!

Happy Monday Everyone!

  7. Courtney, I know this was a great way to spend your morning. I see so many things I would have to have a close up with. Love the metal looking signs. Sure hope your feeling better. Seems the bugs got off to an early start this season.
