Sacramento Antique Fair

With my chai tea in hand and scarf around my neck, I forged the streets of Downtown Sacramento with my dear girlfriend (who got up at the crack of dawn for me...don't you love those friends!) to set my sights on some gorgeous antique finds.

I was on the hunt to find Tracey from the blog, Notes from a Cottage Industry...remember what I made her? Well, how appropriately, she had these sweet little cupcakes for all her bloggy visitors! She truly is the cupcake queen!

Tracey was a delight to meet and I also got to meet her partner, the other Tracy! Both so sweet and so talented, I soaked in all of their amazing creations. Here is some delicious eye candy from their booth...I love this coffee filter garland...

Shredding old newspaper and books makes an easy and lovely filler...

Another fabulous booth was Marilyn's from Marilyn, Marilyn, Marilyn. I have never been to her blog before but was delighted to find her here at the fair. I will be reading now!

She had so much of this glorious fresh moss...beautiful!
I love the sheet music on the plate here...

How cute to throw your little nest in a tree!

I loved the idea of putting glitter in little salt and pepper shakers!Another new bloggy friend, Jacque, from Old Soul Studios and The Creative Gardener had wonderful garden style decor. Here is her take on the heart on the fence...I love the idea but wanted mine a little more shabby...(you will see what I did at the end of this post)

Cute vintage cards spell out fun words...I am kicking myself for not purchasing any of these but it was all so overwhelming!

After all the beautiful things I saw, I settled on a few fun pieces that fit my style (and well, my budget!)I love how cute these vintage photos looked pinned up by glittery pink clothes pins on my new chicken wire memo board.

Here is my take on the heart and fence...ain't she gorgeous!

I am going to paint this little crate and use it to organize my craft stuff. I had a lovely morning and enjoyed all the beautiful sights to be seen. It was also neat to be able to meet such lovely ladies whose blogs constantly inspire me.

At the end of the many darling little money. So here is my little list of things I will be thrifting for in hopes of making a few of my own creations...

-sheet music
-clothes pins
-old books
-old address numbers
-old alphabet cards

Do you have a thrift list? What are you on the hunt for right now?
