I ventured to St. Charles for the Kane County Flea Market today with Amanda. I am not a huge fan of flea markets since I'm not really into vintage stuff. I like a little here and there, but I kind of feel like ... if I'm going vintage it should mean something to me. That said ... I will go anywhere just for the experience. And I had heard this flea market was particularly good.
I was totally impressed with the amount of vendors - LOTS! And I managed to pick up some fabulous little treasures. A vintage light meter (how cool is that for eight bucks?), a collection of "Y" letterpress blocks, a super cool handmade bag (because I need another bag like I need a hole in the head -- but it's cool) and then the steal of the show... a vintage chevron quilt. I spotted it and originally passed it by and then circled back. I have been talking with my mother about making me something like this and voila! As you can see the kitties have already adopted it. Lucy is lounging on it as I type!
I give the Kane Co. Flea two thumbs up!
Still loving the new VSCO photo app. Having such a hard time choosing between color and black & white. And sometimes double process with instagram - even more fun!!
... via iPhone ...
(20) bokeh !! I love bokeh! Finally got the Fall decor out - twinkle lights make for excellent bokeh! This is my other kitty, Lucy. She and I had a date with the vet today for her annual check up. She's all good, but gained a pound and a half in one year! Yikes!! Gonna have to put my girl on a diet!
And for a little bonus bokeh from earlier this week ... a little Chicago skyline.
Hope you are having an excellent Saturday! The sun is finally out in Chicago, but it's still a little on the cool side... So I've stayed in catching up on magazines, DVR, photo editing and all things that are refreshing and relaxing. It was a very long and crazy week last week.
