La Dolfina


Hello everyone,
I hope you are having a great Tuesday....
I went to the Alameda Flea Market on Sunday....
to do a little treasure hunting for the shop, with my two daughters....
We had a lot of fun shopping the flea market together...
My girls are great helpers....
I actually ran into a blog friend while at the flea market on Sunday....
I got to meet Therese from La Dolfina....
It is funny because I have been a follower of her blog for about a year now...
We actually have crossed paths a number of times, and didn't realize it until we both had posted about the event....
We finally got to meet in person...
Therese is just as sweet in person as she seems on her blog.
I'll be back with a fun giveaway tomorrow.  I hope you can come back for a visit.
Take Care,
Maria

What fun, I've chatted to Terri on the phone and I'm hoping we'll meet up one day too, I'm sure she's as sweet in the real version as on her blog!

I too love junk/antique shopping with my kids! It's so nice that you are giving them an appreciation for items that are aged and have a "story". I bet it was so fun to meet another blogger! HOW FUN!

I was at the Alameda Flea Market on Sunday too! Wasn't it a beautiful day for treasure hunting? When I left at 11a the line to buy tickets was wrapped around into the parking lot so I guess lots and lots of other people shared our great idea :)

Sounds like you had a wonderful day. Just wondering if that wonderful wire basket was purchased on that treasure hunt. It looks gorgeous with those hydrangeas. ~~Sherry~~

Good Morning Maria you sweet thing!
You and your daughters were definitely my best score at The Point on Sunday! I'm so happy our paths finally collided. It really was wonderful to finally meet you in person. I'm looking forward to having you over and spending more time together!!
Give Bethany & Nicole big hugs from me and I'll see you again soon!

I always come here with so great pleasure! Your photos are always so wonderfully beautiful! These heads of pink and blue hydrangeas are quite spring! Have a nice evening and sweet!

Al said...

Hydrangea are my favorites. You have nicely styled and photographed them. It is a shame that they don't have a fragrance right? Have a great day too.

Hi - I haven't checked in for a while...LOVE your 'new' blog design...Photos, posts still lovely and inspirational.

Love Terri from La Dolfina!

All That Jazz said...

Oh, how fun! I've met a few bloggers at flea markets and it is always so cool and a bit nerve-wracking! I've always stumbled over my words and don't know what to say. Usually it's just "I love and want to buy ALL your stuff!" Hee! :-) I am hoping to connect with Rachel from French Farmhouse 425 soon, we want to do some shopping at the new Ruffles & Rust square.
Have a happy week!

Tracie~MyPetiteMaison said...

I was just over at her blog and had to run over and say the cute lady I saw in the cowboy hat wasn't you. How funny on my part...

Hope you found lots of things for your store, Maria.

Hoping to run into you one of these times... maybe at container opening this weekend.
