Look what I found...

 One of the things I like about having a booth at the flea market...is the shopping!! Yesterday I was able to walk around a bit in the morning and I spotted a couple things I HAD to have...this is the first one...
 The gentleman at the booth spent time in Japan in the early 1970's and brought back a few water colors...this was one...since I absolutely love birds...this spoke to me...aren't they cute! Don hung this one on a wall in our bedroom...it looks perfect there!
 Here's another one I got...sorry about the reflection...I didn't notice until I loaded them here...it has a sort of sage green mat...not sure where it will end up...but I love it!
 Both of them had this symbol on the bottom...
Here's the close up of the other birds...naturally my pictures got out of order...I have no idea how that happens...I loaded them in order...anyway...we took them out of the frames and they are not prints...they are the original water colors...they were pretty dirty and grimy...the first frame is really a nice one...the bottom one not so much...just thinner I guess...I have no idea who the artist is...I just like them and at both for $20...I couldn't pass them up...I buy for enjoyment...not value!!

We had a pretty successful day in our booth...Don sold a number of his bigger pieces...and a table he made...he sold quite a few smaller ones too...my tote bags went well...as well as the doll carriers and zipper bags...I got a lot of requests for little girl purses and more back packs...I'll have to work on that for next time. It was nice getting out there and talking to people...we met so many nice young families ..petted quite a few dogs and puppies...and so many other wonderful vendors. I also came home with more new tiny succulents...different from  ones I have here...and that gave Don an idea...he is now outside making succulent holders out of some of the smaller pieces of reclaimed cedar he has out back...that man doesn't throw anything away!!

Until next time...enjoy your day!!!

It sounds like a very succesful sale day for you both, Linda! I'm happy your beautful handi work is being appreciated.

Yes, Colorado is very different from NYC, but we are enjoying the change of scenery and the peace and quiet very much Spending more time with the grandboys has been wonderful, too! Now I'm glad to be here to help my duaghter after she has her baby.

I never realized how much I loved birds until I started noticing that I have them all over my house. So pretty, what a great find!

My CC would love the watercolors as she adores Asian art. She is spending a year in Korea starting in September. Thrilled you are doing well in booth.
