Expo Buys

Mav, Dotty and I caught the last few hours of the Portland antique expo this afternoon.  It was like a date, except for Dotty and well the fact Mav and I weren't together half of the time.  I want to do a quick run through then go back and shop.  Mav can spend an hour in one booth of ephemera.  I get impatient.  But it is fun and we run into each other and I show him the things I like and he buys them for me.  Perfect.  Above are those things.
 I absolutely love the first dress.  I bought both dresses at Time Was vintage.  Their clothing and prices are fabulous.  Next you see a sampler- perfect for my post Musical Bedrooms.  The Bunnykins plate I couldn't resist because the mama is rolling out pie crusts. ( If you only knew how many photos I have of our family and rolling pins.)
Mav surprised me with the bracelet on our way home.  He is a hopeless romantic and bought it because it was green with yellow flecks like my eyes.  He's the best.
Not pictured is a birthday gift for Solanah.  Shhhh.
Speaking of Vixen Vintage, I was recognized from her blog while out at expo and got to meet the darling Brooksie.
