HI Everyone :) .... HAPPY HOLIDAY WEEKEND!!
I'm so excited to have some free time so I wanted to share some random picts from today! It's NOT AT ALL scrapbooking related ..... just so you know :)
GOSH.... I have to say.. I love LONG holiday weekends because I get the opportunity to do things I usually don't have time for! and THIS weekend started out just right with a early visit to the Ventura Famer's Market! (I called my sister last nite and pretty much begged her to get up early and go with me.. she's so super sweet and agreed!)
ok.. so the VTA Farmers Market isn't big AT ALL.. and I'm not sure but I think the prices are average... but that's not why I go! :) I go to enjoy the quite morning hours in Ventura and the pretty things I see at the market. Everyone's in a great mood.. pleasant to chat with.. just really nice and a very relaxing way for me to spend my morning! ;) (while my boys and honey are sleeping in)
So.. I thought it would be great fun to share some picts from my morning! :) Hope you enjoy!!
*****ENTRANCE to the Farmer's Market ..... it's a small one but so pretty!
****** I found these ever so tempting perfect purple articokes!! Don't these look so delicious.. too bad I don't know how to prepare them!! LOL
AND I loved the colors of these bunches of Chard.. which I didn't get any either.. cause (shhh...) I don't know how to cook these either!!!
YEP... FRESH SUPER ORANGE CARROTS! loved how they looked!! bought a bunch.
And THEN!! OMG!!! I turned the corner and saw this spectacular (perfect size for my garden) trumpet flower tree!! I ran over to it.. they ONLY HAD ONE!! HEEE.. I stood there gawking at it.. and telling my sister how much I LOVED IT!!! Isn't it GOREGOUS??? !!!and
THIS LADY ....
STOLE the TRUMPET TREE FROM ME!! Ok... she didn't steal it from me... she had was standing right there looking at it too... and when I came over and started my (too loud - lessons learned) "oooh ahhh!! sooo pretty!!" ...thats when she opened her wallet and told the vendor she'd take it!! TAKE IT SHE DID.. ALL THE WAY TO HER CAR... ugh. :) I wanted to body slam her to the floor and wrestle that tree away from her!! LOL but I didn't! so there it went! (looks like it wasn't even gonna fit in her car.. but NOPE SHE MADE SURE SHE FIT IT IN THERE!! I was happy for her.. she REALLY must have wanted it badly!! :)
