Another visit to the Irvine Antique Market

 The first Sunday of the month usually finds me at
the Irvine Antique Market.
This weekend being Lunar New Year
I was  inspired to bring out my second
 Chinese jacket
this one with a wonderful dragon motif.

I again paired the jacket with stripes
this time 
a classic brenton
white jeans
leopard flats
a panama hat
a canvas messenger bag
 to hold the necessities
lots of turquoise
and of course
my wicker wheeled basket 
for found treasures.

 I was able to finish off this outfit
when I found this 
Chinese inspired double basket
that now has a new life as a purse.

 A perfect treasure found.

 I also found a hand crocheted cream shawl
that has already been washed and is now 
fresh and clean …
just waiting for it's newest incarnation!

 A tall floor lamp was on our list
and we found a beauty!

 This vintage bar set will be traveling with us
to our next hotel stay!

Tomorrow I will be joining Judith for her February 
Hat Attack
and later this week I will have my first installment of

As always my friends

I wish you love and joy
as you style your life
