|Mayflower Beach, Cape Cod ~ Ma. @ sunset|
It was seriously a great week ~ The kids skim boarded with Sea Lions (scared the $%&! out of me) the 2 year old monster (I mean my daughter:) fell asleep early every night - too tired to even hear a bedtime story, great weather and a sweet house. We hardly ate at restaurants at all- it was not easy to get everyone off the beach by a decent hour, so we just picked up fresh seafood from the local markets and cooked at the house and went back to the beach to celebrate the glorious sunsets.
I am saving the best part of this getaway for last: Shopping!!!!! Oh no, I didn't even walk into one cute little gift shop or boutique. I headed straight for the outdoor Flea Market - YEHAW!!! At first I was worried because it wasn't the kind of Flea I was used to - everything was brand new - loads of bright shiny plastic bric a brac. But luckily, son #2 found the one vendor tent that had some great old junque. Next, I hunted down an Estate Sale by a French woman transplanted to The Cape 66 years ago. Her home was weeellll off the beaten path and lucky for me, only a handful of others found her amazing home. I will list some of the items in my FBV shop later. I am way behind on listing new stuff but it'll get there this week.
Just wanted to say "Hi' to everyone ~ I seriously did miss Blogland. No Wi-Fi at the cottage - that was about the only downside (that and a few LARGE spiders in the shower). Check back on White Wednesday's post for some of the really nice Vintage pieces I was lucky enough to score.
p.s ~ I'm ready, when does school start????
