Grma and Grpa visited last week. It was a bit of a crazy week, but we were delighted to have them around. In fact, they are coming back again for the Fourth of July and bringing our little nephew and neice (and their mom and dad) along! Super fun!
I had been wanting to explore the Dallas Farmers' Market and Grpa had wanted to see the big bronze long horns. So we ventured down town one day.
I loved the Farmers' Market. First, we walked through one open air building that was all furniture, wrought iron, pottery and other international items.
Big pots. Big stars.
These are vintage molds for making cones of sugar. Wouldn't they be superfantastic for storing markers, pens or paint brushes?
Donna Downey bought one recently. (She's a ***scrapbook*** artist. And I adore her artwork and blog. Check out this post about her studio make-over. See the sugar mold holding pens on the top shelf?)
More pots. More color.
And then we were on to the produce areas.
Fruit stacking is an important skill to have if you are going to be a vendor. Every thing was in a tiny tight little pryamid. Oh... the colors.
And just so you know I didn't take pictures of just the wonderful wares... here's the family heading toward the car. Grpa has a cantelop in that sack.
I bought two little treasures. I'll tell you about them tomorrow. I was a bit overwhelmed for my first trip and didn't have a "shopping list" in my head. But, I am now formulating one and surely I'll be back.
