Happy Holiday Weekend Wishes

Hello, friends!

Wanted to take a second away from my project to wish my friends in the States here a wonderful, beautiful and safe 4th of July weekend.  My friend, Barbara at Uniquely Chic
sent me these fleurs for July 4th, aren't they patriotic?  Love them to bits and I wanted
to share them with you.

Whatever your plans, enjoy your long summer days!

Special weekend wishes for my friends abroad too...

Let's all just enjoy life, take a cozy seat here with me for a moment and make some lovely times for our family friends!

Happiness to you, 
Happy weekend and Happy 4th of July!

I will be back in a couple weeks.

Bonjour my sweet friends!

Seashells, memorial hearts, fleurs & French fragments 

Since it's finally summer and I think many of us dream of the sea, wouldn't it be nice
to meet up with a new friend, or perhaps one many of you already know?

That would be Kerrie of Sea Cottage blog who is a most talented artist.  I know first hand,
as I was fortunate to be sent one of Kerrie's beautiful note cards as a thank you when
she was the winner of one of my giveaways.  Believe me, it was so beautiful that my
daughter that only takes some of my prettiest items, took it with her to her new apartment!

Sea shells, fleurs, memorial hearts, French fragments at My Petite Maison

Kerrie has just opened her Etsy shop named Seawashed and she is kindly having a 
most beautiful giveaway.

Here's Kerrie's blog so you may jump over and see yourself and then enter her Etsy shop
from Sea Cottage.

Seawashed has such beautiful items. I quickly clicked on Kerrie's store link so she would
be a shop within My Petite Maison's Circle on Etsy.  Seeing her work up close, and first-hand truly was the reason I knew her art work would fit in nicely with items I offer at my store.

Please, go pay Kerrie of Sea Cottage a visit and tell her Tracie at My Petite Maison sent you!

Wishing every one a beautiful week from here...

Happiness to you!

Scenes from a Flea Market {Alameda}

Oui... scenes from a most excellent flea market!

Our drive... beautiful, beautiful sky!

One we're so fortunate to be within a nice little drive here in Wine Country.  All it takes is getting up (very early) and then remembering where we've parked the car!

I'm talking about Antiques by the Bay or Alameda Faire.  It's truly a beautiful place to host a flea market, right on the Bay, with the skyline so pretty within view of San Francisco.

What a view to shop/treasure hunt by...

From my Instagram photos while there... love being able to do that w/my iPhone!

My only problem is there is so much to see and too little time!

Beautiful goods from Atelier de Campagne... always a favorite!
I could live in this booth and have brought many, many things home for My Petite Maison.
See my friend, Barbara from Uniquely Chic Floral & Home there looking for treasures?

Love this booth... one of the prettiest by far.  Hope to find them in July!

 We met this seller/dealer, Colette and her mom at the show.  They were so nice!

I should have asked her more information but we were so busy getting around,
Colette, if you happen upon this post, send me your blog link and I'll post it.

So many treasures.  Large & small.  All wonderful treasures!

Shutters, crusty chandelier and plants.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this booth!

Fell in love with this little dog house, wish it was Zeke's size!

Irma's booth • Simply I. Molina
This is Irma's booth which is beautiful too.  I could live there too.  Irma's from Healdsburg, as I shared with Irma, my blog gets many hits with people looking for her and her business Simply I. Molina, she certainly has many fans/customers!  I should have taken more photos of her booth.  I'll try to remember next time for you!

Barbara & Jesus at Alameda Faire
Above, one of my very favorite photos from this trip...
My friend, Barbara and beautiful Jesus at the flea market!

Me, carrying many loved items!

I wish I had a larger cart...
Whoops, I mean car.

But it was time to load things up in the car.
Many thanks to my ever patient husband that sorted through 
mine and Barb's items and carefully placed everything
in the car for the safe drive home while we chatted away
about what beautiful items we'd found.

Happiness to you!
