It was that time again...

Yesterday was the second Sunday of the month, so we decided to take off to Pasadena for the Rose Bowl flea market...we had such a good time last month that my sisters wanted to join us this time...so off we went...
Debbie and Chelsey were big fans of "Big Love" and they spotted a star from the show...now I never saw the program, but he seemed like the nicest guy...and so young! Anyway...he was sweet enough to talk to them and pose for a photo too.



Of course Stella had a good time riding in one of my purchases...a big galvanized tub...it kept her busy for some time!




And look what her Grandpa bought her! It's a perfect fit...she's gonna have a great time on this old fire truck...they don't make them like this any more...



After a long day of walking and shopping...we headed over to Azusa...to a favorite place ...La Tolteca...they have great food...and the best chips and salsa!




Here's what Don and I brought home with us...a nice big stack of magazines for Don...a mix of National Lampoon and Mad Magazine...I think he has his Summer reading all lined up now!




We found a percolator in perfect condition...I remember making my Dad's coffee in one of these when I was a girl...I think this will be perfect...no more filters to buy and it's so easy and fast too!




A big galvanized tub...it will be great to make a planter for the back porch...




A nice chippy and rusted welcome sign...also for the back porch...




Here's a close up...




Some succulents for the front porch planter...it needs a few more..I just realized I forgot to include Don's albums he bought too...he got three this time...I took a picture...just forgot to add it. We had a fun day with family and brought home some new treasures...but when we got home we were pooped!! I think we walked for miles!


Enjoy your day, my friends!
