Show & Tell Sunday

Thanks again to Cerri & Analise for hosting this week. Make sure to take a look at the flickr group too for all the participants.
I'm showing pictures of Lucketts, VA. It's the sweetest place to visit. My in-laws live in the "sitcks" but it's just a short ferry boat ride over to Lucketts.
If you are in the area the Old Lucketts Store is having their annual Spring Antique Market. I originally posted about my shopping day here & here. I'm adding a few pictures here that weren't on the original post, but I have put all of them on my flickr account.My new favorite local place is Spence's Bazzar here in Dover, DE. I featured it last Show & Tell Sunday & went again yesterday. Unfortunately I don't have any pictures of the outdoor market. I have a few pics of the antiques indoors & some of the food. I bought some more bling from the sweetest lady yesterday. I told her I take vintage pieces & rework them into new bracelets & necklaces. She gave me a price break just because I love all this vintage stuff. Here's something new I made with all the new old stuff I've acquired. I'm really excited about where my new creations are going. I've been so inspired lately. I'll post more tomorrow. I'm working on a deadline to get some jewelry into a contest.

You always find the coolest places to shop. Love the bling you got and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the way you are reworking it in your new work!

Happy Belated Birthday!! What a great present ... the babysitter/beadshow combo is just the best present! So glad you had fun and found such great treasures!

And congrats on the Artful Blogging press! Yeah!!! I must admit I'm a tiny bit jealous, but SO happy for you!!!! Are you going to buy an extra copy to cut up and frame? I think that would look really nice in you studio.
