This weekend was one crazy busy hoo-ha!
My kids had last week off and it was relaxing...
but we ended it with a bang.
I participated in our city's artwalk on Friday.
This weekend was also the fourth Friday of the month...
and to me, that means it is my favorite weekend -
time for our vintage wholesale market Pickings!

Last month I sold my banners there,
but this month I shopped and my kiddos hosted a lemonade stand
(see more about that a bit later in the post).
I just wanted to share some of my eye candy from this weekend,
as captured on my HTC OneX phone.
This phone takes the most amazing photos - I am blown away.
These photos may have been cropped but not retouched/altered at all...
aren't they gorgeous!? ENJOY!

My kids hosted a lemonade stand at Pickings and will be donating a portion of their proceeds to help save the Lovers Point Childrens Pool.
We have a great ocean front pool here.
I have spent many, many summers wrapped in a blanket with coffee
watching my son learn to swim (summer is not warm here).
My daughter never had a chance to take swimming lessons there.
It was definitely a gathering place for mom's and kids during the summer.
The pool needs help. In 2011 it opened for 2 weeks. In 2012 it did not open at all.
The area around it is being revitalized...
and there is a grassroots effort to raise enough money $250,000 -
to fix and reopen the pool. They are half way there and every bit helps.
So...we tried...we did not raise a lot...but every little bit helps.
It was about the experience and feeling like they were helping!
That is a peek into my life!
Hope you had a great weekend!
