Tarte Two

I had tons of things to do today, but couldn't resist going to Tarte.  For those of you who are unenlightened about Tarte, it's an old barn in Oregon City which is transformed to a French Flea Market once each month.    
Beautiful vignettes and vintage treasures are everywhere. 
Eye Candy abounds...
Pearls with keys, crowns, and religious symbols are very popular...
crepe paper cupcakes cute! 
soldered pendants take the place of a lampshade
My friend Barb, wore her grandmother's red squirrel fur coat and was quite the celebrity! 
Great decorating ideas in the 'Shabby Chic' genre'
You meet the nicest people on these adventures.  We met Connie and her friends, and Connie modeled her crown of glitter planets.   She bought it for an angel in her front yard...she said that we had to drive by her house and see her angel, and her 'baby' angel.  The photos don't do them justice, since the main angel is draped in several strings of pearls, and is holding a sweet gold glitter bird.  Her front porch really got me in the mood for spring, with potted plants, nests, daffodils everywhere!  Thanks for sharing!  I look forward to our paths crossing again!
