What a lovely day for a Street Faire!

Sally and I were finally able to go to a street faire as customers! The sun was shining warmly and the atmosphere was delightful.

Laurie and Debbie (how stinking cute are they?) of Worthy Goods put on this wonderful street faire in Camas.

Truth be told, I've never spent a lot of time in Camas, but I was taken with the tree lined streets, black awnings on the shops and the hanging flower baskets. Ok Battle Ground, we need to get some good ol' fashioned character too!

I finally got to meet Isabelle of Maison Douce, what a sweetheart! I so enjoyed talking with her and seeing her beautiful vintage wares in person.

Joe of Barn House was there..and before I saw him I knew it was BH style that I was looking at...he does an amazing job.

Sweet Natalie of Sparrow was there too. I love all her letter charms and white stoneware. I got a picture of her plates, but not her...I don't know why people don't think it's funny when I tell them I'm just the paparazzi...

I also met lovely Erin of Rickety Picket. She's from Olympia, but she knows Uncovered Ruby (COOL!)

I admit I have more fun chatting with people than I do shopping. Another truth about me, I'm not a big shopper (weird huh?), but I enjoy junking!

Friends I love....
Sally and Sue (Birdsong)

Sue and Annette (Andy's Attic), silly girls! What a cute picture of them having fun. Sue had a wonderful booth at the Street Faire.

As Sally and I were getting ready to leave, Laurie and Isabelle told us to go check out Navidi's Oil and Vinegar shop. They've got just about any flavor of balsamic vinegar you can imagine, with all sorts of oils, gourmet salts, loose leaf was so cool! I've never had a fruity balsamic vinegar, but when I tasted this...Cinnamon Pear Balsamic Vinegar, my taste buds sang! It's YUMMY!!!!

Me and my family have already put quite the dent in this bottle in one night just dipping bread into it. (And yes, those peaches are waiting for me to can them.)
It was such a nice day..spending it with my friend Sally and not having to do anything but enjoy the day!

I'm glad you and Sally enjoyed a nice day of shopping! It was such a perfect day. I'm so glad you got some great balsamic. I'm using the Tuscan Herb EVOO in my veggies right now!
