Weekend Car Trip (and flea market finds)

This weekend meant a really long car trip to my mom's house in Saratoga Springs.  As my mom is not much for dogs we just brought Ping along and she was a very good little travel companion. 

 I got some nice pictures of Ping and me.   The tree in the second picture was planted when I was seven years old, makes me feel kind of old.

The hat I am wearing is from Adeline's Attic on Etsy I love that store and I love store owner Jill's fabulous style blog Tea With the Vintage Baroness she always looks like she stepped of the set of a 1930s film. 

On the way home we stopped at a flea market.  I really wanted to buy this push cart but I didn't have a lot of cash on me so we got a picture instead.

I did buy this vintage Maine state plate from 1955 for five dollars

 and this neat lab kit case, also five bucks.
I love how it says its career building.  "Todays adventures in science will create tomorrow's America!"

I did feel very guilty about leaving the other dogs on Saturday so on Sunday we took a nice walk and brought Tubby and Weasley to the dog park, the other three are not much for the dog park.

 Everyone enjoyed dinner though, burgers.  Here is Bob hanging out on the deck while we grilled

Don't forget to enter Ping's 10th birthday give away and win a Himalayan dog chew, the winner will be announced May 12. 


  1. Some great finds! I love Saratoga. What a wonderful weekend.

  2. A fun filled weekend to be sure.

  3. Road trips are always fun with the new sights and smells to enjoy.

    It sounds like a very nice weekend. I think the the burger barbeque would have been our favorite.

  4. What a great day out, love the hat!
