Pasadena Flea Market :: Sunday, June 13, 2010

Every so often, I get to visit the flea market at the Pasadena Rose Bowl. It's only open every 2nd Sunday of each month and with my busy family schedule, I rarely get a chance to make it out there. So after 2 years, I am back and even came home with some cool stuff!

I went with the kakester and my dear friend Jenn. Her eagle eye scored me a vintage green suitcase. LOVE IT!!! It was even clean inside. And even better.. $15!!!

My vintage teacups. Aren't they so pretty!

Btw... the images of my finds were taken with my new camera :)

Happy Birthday to Me!

A month has passed since my birthday, but I always believe that the celebrating never stops!

I love that my cousin Eric works for Target and is so gracious to offer his discount to me. Yea. Discount. Who can't resist a Target discount? So it turned out that they were having the discount days last weekend and the camera happened to be on sale! Double score! So, I am now the proud owner if a Canon Rebel EOS Xi.

I didn't think it would be so sudden, but I'm excited to embark on this new photography trip. I have a photoshoot in the works for my cards and invitations. And not to mention all the cool pictures of my family! Ahhhhhh! So excited :)

With the exception of this photo (it was taken with my camera on my phone) look forward to some new photos on the bliggity-blog.


This is too cool. Visit losiento studio for more design goodness. Way inspirational.
