Seeing as this is my blog I have the right to change my mind :) I am going to postpone the photos of the carnival until tomorrow (it was cute but not OVERLY exciting) because on my way home I stopped at the local flea market and found some goodies.
Before I get to that, lets take care of business.. If you could vote for Fleurp, I'd really appreciate it (no need to register, simply click there then on the vote button. If you are so inclined you can vote every 12 hours. Only one vote per IP address)
OK, now for the goodies.
The flea market isn't huge, but it is good sized for the town. They run as much of the year as they can. Sometimes I stop in and find things, sometimes not. Since I am coming up on my ten year blogoversary I thought it might be fun to hold some giveaways. I didn't really know what to give away. Heaven knows we all probably have enough stuff with cats on them, so I didn't really want to do cat figurines or purses with cats on them, etc. But since this is a cat blog, I can't image what else would be a big draw.
But I've been keeping my eye out where ever I have been lately. One stand had some cute jewelry. Some tiger eye earrings and necklaces.. I saw a really interesting broach that was also a locket too. As I wandered on I came across a table with a "If I were a Cat" children's book. It was cute, but not overly cute. The really nice man who was running it with his wife shared with me another book which I did really like. Then he gave me a second which I also liked and a third. (good thing his wife was starting to pack up or I might have gone home with a library of books!!)
And these were the books
Then I looked up and saw the following picture.
Want to win "Fats" Just post a comment. If you could tell me what you'd love to see on a giveaway that would be cool... as I do want to do something really fun in October on my blogoversary.. Feel free to be a little crazy but somewhat realistic. I mean I don't have a million dollars to give away.. Costume jewelery, books? or cat related paraphernalia like cat toys or cat beds?
Comments will be open for a week when I'll choose a winner by random next Sunday.
