Alameda Antiques and Collectibles Faire

Wednesday, September 8, 2010

Flea market day was Sunday, September 5, 2010. I had both girls so we met up with HM and went treasure hunting. It was a long, sunny, perfect, fun day that began with Peet's coffee and Noah's Bagels and the flea market and ended with an A's vs Angels game at the Oakland Coliseum. If I wait any longer to post, it will be too late to really be exciting... Here are the favorite photos of the day:
Beautiful Green Cabinet (my favorite color!)
Pretty Green Cabinet
The perfect tiny Paris for my studio (I could shoot myself for not buying this):
Tiny Parisian Neighborhood-ALAMEDA
I could design an entire house around this canvas:
I've shown you these before, I never tire of their beauty (esp the green ones!):
Hungarian Yogurt Pots-ALAMEDA
Another BIG NUT, just like the one I inherited from my Great Gramma Mom! HM bought it for me and now I have two nuts. (besides the girls, who when told by me "now I have a nut to hand down to each of my girls" promptly started the 'dibs' process saying "I GET THE ORIGINAL NUT" *sheesh* a mom can't win):
The Big Nut-just like mine!! ALAMEDA
A fabulous set light for the movie girl in me (and for my imaginary studio!):
For the Movie Girl in Me
This is for the early morning rides to the boulangerie (conveniently located in the same town as my charming *imaginary* atelier):

Of course, I will have all the time in the world to spend in my beautiful atelier (won't mind "clockwatching" with this beauty):
Beautiful Big Clock
For the plant that will never die (in my perfect studio):
Roseville $375 Alameda
And even MORE beautiful French enamel clock:

I will have all French silverware (like these, I should have at least purchased the forks at $7 each-kicking myself now):
French Silverware- ALAMEDA
J'observerai mes poissons nager dans ce fishbowl:
Deco Fishbowl $875
Back in aux etats unis, I will need gas:
When I return to my beautiful imaginary studio I will need the following items:
Table of lovely French Treasures
Really, how could I have left without this clock???
Stunning Yellow Clock Face-ALAMEDA
Or these?
Petite Clocks-ALAMEDA
I could make a few quilts to feather this beautiful nest:
French Day Bed-ALAMEDA
Or I could just drink lots of coffee and wake up from this little atelier dream:
Coffee a la Francaise
We passed on food (but it was so HARD!!) as we were headed out to the baseball game:
Good to eat-ALAMEDA
And I have to say, a good time was had by all 4 of us:

Baseball Girls!

The End For Now
