To Market








The anticipation of not knowing what you might find.

Good morning—I hope you have had a wonderful weekend! The majority of my weekend was spent working, but I did enjoy a bit of fun—the highlight? stopping at the market. Each year, I look forward to going to the annual night market—it is a large, cultural event held each Summer, on weekends from May to September, with rows and rows of vendors selling a myriad of clothing, jewelry, accessories, food, drinks, everything you can imagine! Young and old gather each year and enjoy the lively atmosphere, food and finds. I love the sites and smells, and picking up something to eat (most especially roasted corn on the cob) while wandering the aisles—excited by what I might come across... do you enjoy markets as well?

--

And also, some of this week's finds to share with you: a sunny, Summer glow / lovely, lacy bracelets + vintage brooches (to die for!) / a beautiful color scheme: nude + caramel / back to its roots: Starbucks re–vamped / a narrow house / an amazing shower / an organic linen necklace, with delicate pale pink petals and pearls / a cozy and chic house in Greece / great styling: a table for two / the sweetest, sewn illustrations / gorgeous shoes / and, lastly, a very pretty, elegant locket ring... have a great Monday!

  11. I swear, sometimes a photo shoot has such a tangible feeling to it that you feel like you can smell the air and feel the sun. These photos have that feeling.

  16. All such lovely photos! I particulary am drawn to the milk bottles and the pile of baskets. I love the night market, and funny enough I was just about to go this weekend as well! But it may have to wait for next weekend...it's so much fun to see what you'll discover there!

  18. Miz.November -- that is so true! The photos are actually from two completely different sources, but it all works so well together.

    Mackenzie -- me too! Though, I usually end wearing half of it!

    Nancy -- there seems to be even more vendors there than ever before this year :)
