Thursday Thirteen Show and tell

Thursday Thirteen #10 Show and tell!

Two days ago I received this lovely daisy brooch, with a little pack of sweet smelling lavender wrapped in this fun paper. My unexpected winnings from Paula Clares website! The sweet vintage brooch is so similar to the one I had as a young girl. I'm going to search my photos to see if it's exactly the same! She enclosed a little card that says " Do what you love, love what you do" I can be regularly heard to say " Do what you love, the money will come secondary!" Thank you so much Paula I absolutely love brooches!
Photo taken by Pepper at Pemberton fest of a guy wearing the Wrong kind of man skirt!
Woot, Woot, this guy is wearing the RIGHT kind of skirt, also known as the kilt....and you know what they wear under those don't cha???!!! OH YEAH!! I know, "control yourself Sherrie"....maybe it's my new haircut.....stay tuned for that....haven't had a picture taken of it yet...
Peppers photo of this adorable family, parents protecting their baby's ears at Pemberton! They managed to find their picture on the facebook website and emailed Pepper! Their battery died on their camera so I think they were pretty happy to have this photo!
At a bridal shower last week we had to make a bouquet out of silk flowers. The bride picked her favorite as the winner. Mine got first place......
Which one do you think it was?

Yes mine was the purple and pink one, I shockingly received a twenty five dollar gift certificate to Linens and things! I'll wait for a sale and really make that count! Pepper's creation right next to mine with pink and yellow, got a third place starbucks card!
Thank you for abundance!

Check out this cool chartreuse vintage car we saw at an art festival last week.
Pemberton Festival photo taken by Pepper. A woman exposed her girls for a short time before realizing it wasn't Woodstock! After the odd stare of disdain she slipped those puppies back under her elasticized dress! Nice try though! Definitely an interesting character!
Now don't these two look like a couple of tree huggers!! Yes they do, this was taken in Pemberton! My very own little tree huggers, the musician and the business woman!
They left the Pemberton festival Monday at 4:40 A.M. heading home, Tuesday there was a terrible rock slide on the mountain! A small van type bus was hit by the first few rocks but managed to boot it out of the way before tons of rock fell! I'd say lucky it didn't happen a day earlier when forty thousand people descended down the mountain from Pemberton Fest! Very scary! It's going to take four to five days to clear up the rock. An alternate route takes eight hours from Vancouver.
Ladner market these necklaces were sold at a fair price! I was so tempted to get a fushia one! She had an amazing selection displayed. Something for everyone too! A crowd hovered around her table during the whole market. I managed to get a card. She was unsure if her website was up and running because her daughter manages it!
I found her website, right here!

Also at the Ladner Market another local artist Cathy from "Everything Under the Sun" makes adorable cards, decorates light plates, furniture and canvases! Check out her monkeys in undies below! So cute!
Hope you enjoyed my random show and tell!

Paula Clare said...

Hi There!
So glad you like the brooch! I see from your many photos that black and white and daisies are truly a "you" kind of thing! WOOT! Stylin for sure.
So the Pemberton Festival is a 3 day rock concernt? (I assume Pemberton is the locale?) and WHY was I not invited? It looks like a true hippie fest of flower children and the like...and although I'd be a tad (that's just a tad mind you) older than most, I'd STILL be one sporting bizarre hats (Oh how I would love one of those tall and wacky feather tophats!) and hanging about!

I left you something gold at my place. play along if you want...

Mary Timme said...

Chock full to the brim this post is! What an amazing group of photos. I think the kilt guy with the fur leggings is my fav as it looks so odd with a t-shirt. Thank heavens the rock slide came when it did.

Fun stuff to look at further down the post too! Something for everyone if you count the daisy or sunflower encrusted pasties!
