Hello from Sunday night
What happens on a Sunday when you have three car/antique/rock nuts in the family?
A fantastic day out in the country. 😀
Our day started out with a visit to a swap meet auto jumble sale about 100km out of town.
We found some lovely cars and trucks and some good deals on car parts and tools.
Chloe, who is determined to go to Japan for a year, picked out at least three cars or trucks she wanted to buy on the spot…and then have me deal with them while she’s in Japan. Safe to say she can’t have
them all it all.
We almost buckled at this lovely red truck…but the pinto? LOLOL…er…NO!
I came across these light covers and had a though. My new walnut dashboard for my mini has an extra hole in it and my friend Gillian, a flying instructor, suggested I put an altimeter in the hole, and that’s a fantastic idea, but if I can’t get one the right size, I was wondering if maybe I could have R install a light and reverse paint one of these glass things for some car art. How cool would that be?
When we were finished with the car swap meet, we drove over to Fort Langley for some lunch. We needed to wait for about 30 minutes for a table outside so we had a mooch in the antique mall.
I love that place and it takes way longer than 30 minutes to have a good look around, so we stuck to our favourite stalls only and had a through look thru those.
C found this sweet, little, yellow glass cup and it was extremely reasonably priced and so we bought it.
Then our table was ready and I had lunch with my besties and off we drove to the rock and gem show a further 40 km down the road. We got lost once or twice, but managed to find it.
We walked thru the exhibitions and C bought a fossilised shark’s tooth and I bought a lovely pale blue gem to set into some wonderful new design.
Seems we weren’t finished with the country after the full day and so we stayed for a movie.
We saw Captain America, the Winter Soldier. What an absolute load of fun silliness. We loved it! 😀
Sharing with Mary for Mosaic Monday.
what a lovely busy fun filled day .. and topping it off with a pure escapist movie … priceless!
So true. 😀
That looked like such a wonderful day! I would have almost buckled at the red truck too–I love those old trucks and red–too perfect 🙂 Love the light idea as well. You have such marvelous inspirations!
Thank you so much Sara. The more I think about it the more I like the idea of an anachronistic bit of art on the dashboard of the mini. R said he can wore anything to any purpose so that’s wonderful. I also bought a beautiful old glass gas filter, which R promised to install in the gas line in the motor. This little old mini of mine might just become a wonderful art and craft car. 😀
looks like you had a great time, i would have enjoyed it.
that is an awesome hat, great protection from the sun!
We did have a great time Tammie. R loves that hat; it’s similar to the one he has in England. (that one will fall apart soon I fear…lol)
