finds



i honestly didn't even dream
of being able to visit the flea markets
with 3 kids in tow.
but after giving it a shot
that one saturday
and finding it not only doable
but actually enjoyable,
we have been hitting them every saturday
ever since.

last saturday's market in that
picture-perfect town of montresor,
with the vendors strewn along
the old medieval streets
was not only the quaintest yet,
but also yielded the best finds.
we followed it up by
winding our way across the river
to wander through the agricultural fair
and then found a picnic spot
under the trees away from the crowds
with nothing but a couple of horses
for company.

Love the painting.
Linds---her life has challenges too, she just chooses to see the beauty around her. That's a wonderful gift.
