I love the ambience of a market.  Okay, the truth be known, I just love to shop.  Shop shop shop.  Confessions of a Shopaholic should have been loosely based upon me.  But what I adore most, is an open air market with vendors here, there and everywhere.  Something about an open air market just screams summer to me!  You can find anything you want at a market:

From scarves made in India

To Purses made in Nepal

To hand painted Glassware made locally

To Beads from France

To Fresh Flowers

To plain old Knick Knacks

To handmade Lavender Bags

To Useful containers

To Vintage Linens

To well worn Books

Ahhhhh yes, I love a good market
and for me, it was a very good day!

What says summer to you?

This week I am joining Seasonal Sundays and Outdoor Wednesdays
and I thank The Tablescaper and A Southern Daydreamer for hosting same.
Please feel free to check out what others are

Hope your weekend is full of fantastic finds.

Until Next Time.

  13. Ummm... Will I ruin the mood if what says summer to me is allergies and air conditioning?! LOL... These images are stunning Tracy. And I (madly) love hand-painted glassware!! I also think I have a vintage linen... table runner or something... nearly (if not) exactly like the one here with the yellow trim. Always love your photos girl!!!
