lots of buttons at the booth of www.rubymaejewelry.com
And there is something about Kewpie dolls I just love....
Stacy Jay had some really unique pieces - I really liked her style
I've heard of a pocket full of wishes, but never a jar full of wish bones!

I saw this vintage Marx metal doll house for $5!! I passed it up thinking I really didn't have the room for it in the trailer,
but I'm kicking myself in the butt, because it is just like the one I had when I was little....
That's me when I was 4!
If nothing else, I could have bought and re-sold the doll house - they are going for up to $200 on Etsy! Argh.....
On the way home from the market, we stopped at the Arizona Casino, where I won 7280 pennies! Yea - that's $72.80 - certainly more than anything I won in Vegas. So Noel and I had lunch out, and still had enough to cover the few things I bought at the market. (some vintage books, an old marionette doll and a beautiful Victorian door knocker).
Noel's been volunteering at the Lutheran Church's Thrift Shop, so he's been keeping busy while I've been resting and nursing my bladder pain. I purchased a groupon for a wellness experience, so I was treated to being suspended in a hot tub (so you can float freely without your head sinking!), a massage and then a negative ion "bio mat" complete with infra-red heat and amethyst crystals. The massage was a little rough (deep tissue) so boy was I sore the next day, but that hot tub thing was amazing! Don't you love Groupon??
I've been working a bit on this new "scratch art" technique I learned here at Mesa Spirit. Working from the photo out of a magazine:
I drew this:
I'm still tweaking it, but its coming along.
I'm glad spring has arrived for all our friends and family in Ohio, and I want to thank Beth, who always leaves such positive comments on this blog; its nice to know someone is reading it! :)
