I'm Back ~ Alameda June

I'm back. Between my jaunt to New York and two sinus infections I've been a busy gal. Oh and a bit of work here and there. So let's get started shall we?

Sunday was the monthly installment of Alameda. It was rock'in. The weather as of late in NorCal has been a bit unpredictable to say the least. It is June I think. If April Showers are supposed to bring May flowers, then what the hell do MAY and JUNE showers bring? I'll tell you what they bring, a shitload of allergies and a big bunch of 5 foot weeds in the backyard. Not a good combo. Stay tuned and I will tell you the best thing for allergies. It's not for the faint of heart. But it works!!!!

Oh back to Alameda. So I did go in May. But I did not bring home much. Still trying to think of what I did get and see. I'll have to check the picts and get back to you. I do remember a girl menehue statue from United airlines. I was in love, but my budget wasn't big enough for the $1400 price tag.

So the day started off overcast, but warm and got nice and toasty and pretty damn windy by the end. And I've got the sun burn on the back of my legs to prove it. Roll the picts------

I think these would be fabulous in a store display. Especially a jewelry store. I realize that they are of the male figure, but that's just what pops in my head.

Can't forget the animals and gnomes. A constant at Alameda.
I think I've seen the Ostrich before....

Ready for summer you say? I couldn't agree with you more. These were one of my favorite things, if not my most favorite. SO FUN.... I can see myself basking on the golden sand on the Cote D'Azure. Svennnn... a bit more oil please. And a Pina Colada ...Oh I guess...

Don't forget your Hula outfit and Hawaiian Ice to keep the Summer theme alive

I almost feel like I'm back at Coney Island. Or my own private Island. ( Can you believe we missed the Mermaid shindig at Coney Island by 4 days? More later....)

You know I can't resist the furniture at Alameda...

and the colors!!!!

What can I say? I'm a sucker for metal...

especially if it's Art Deco....

This was bought from a Hollywood studio for $10. I couldn't believe the seller admitted that. Didn't even want to know the price...or the weight. The glass is beautiful.

Stay tuned...tomorrow I'll show you what I brought home and my fabulous steal of the day

Here's a sneak peak. And no I didn't steal the little girl....
