Happy Wednesday Blog Friends! This morning is my first day back to work for the 2014/15 school year, so I wanted to get my final finds from Alameda to you before I get really busy. I had a lot of ideas of what the Alameda Point Antique Faire would be like, but it was so much better than I imagined! The frantic chaos of everyone rushing in at 6 am, the amazing variety of booths, and food cart after food cart, it doesn't get much better then that.
I've been eying Erica's minnow bucket since the day she brought it home. I've seen quite a few, but they have always been out of my price range. I got this one for a steal, and it still has its lid. The seller pointed out the the logo is in both English and French, which is kind of funny. She also did not know what a minnow bucket was used for, so I gave her a lesson. She seemed pretty surprised when I said I was actually going to use it!
But, as many of our Instagram followers already know, this sweet little devil kneehugger that I've named Davy the Devil is my most favorite find of the entire show. Erica spotted him for me and I could hardly contain myself. I've noticed that at times we are better at spotting things for each other then for ourselves. He became our mascot for the remainder of the trip and has been changing location in my house daily since I've brought him home. As you can imagine, Matt hates him.
Well, that is it for me! Erica and I had such a fun time on this adventure and got some Sister time that was well overdue. I will have to say all the driving was worth it and I can't wait to do it again. Maybe next month?

Always a Pleasure,
