OK -- so the Rose Bowl Flea Market in Pasadena, CA is my FAVORITE place on earth. Last time I went there, I walked out with 3 or 4 heaping garbage bags full of vintage linens for a total of $12!!! I spent several gitty hours sorting and sifting, devising big plans to make all sorts of little girl jackets and summer dresses. The result -- one FAB-U-LOUS jacket for my niece, Lily (Laura's girl). More photos here. <!-- ckey="77360DD5" -->
So what if it's been nine months since the haul? One jacket's a pretty good start in my book. Nine more months and I'll have one for Charlotte too!
