Out & About

Yesterday morning was the first time since - I don't know when - that I got out and went treasure hunting! My friend Diane and I went to our favorite, monthly flea market. I was able to restock my supply of interesting old wooden boxes. I use these to contain my little assembleges. There were many other great finds: old pictures, metal lunch boxes, and a wonderful old wood and glass clock case. Our friends Joy and Lisa were also there. Joy was helping Lisa at her table. Lisa had many little bits and pieces that I can use this spring. After shopping, we enjoyed a wonderful breakfast in downtown Independence. What a wonderful little cafe - Andy's Cafe! We had an egg scramble that included fresh spinach, tomato and Asiago cheese. Fabulous!!! After a couple other quick stops, we called it a day. It was so good to get out and have some fun looking for great finds! I'm including some pictures of my friends and the great treasures I found.

Your photos are fabulous, as usual!
