White Pines Flea Market 2012

What I love about traditions, is they help mark the passage of time. Another year has passed since the last flea market at White Pines. And here we are at this year's event. If anything it was bigger and better than earlier years. I bought much less than usual, having set my goal to divest myself of "stuff" rather than accumulate more. But, I had just as much fun. Spent a lot of time chatting with friends and pointing out things they m ight use. Frances was there, Patti was there for the first time - and loved it, Rosemary came without her husband this year. He stayed home to mind the pets. Cat and Gene were there, and Mary and a new friend. The day before the flea market we spent time making prints with our new Gelatin pads. I really liked using them and think I'll be doing more with them again. Here's a pic of us in the kitchen during the flea market.
