It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

Let's go to the Flea Market !

It sounded like a good idea at the time.
We bought things there when we were furnishing our new home here in Buenos Aires. We managed to find 2 lights that were rare, only found in one very over-priced antique shop in Recoleta and there they were, in two different shops in the Flea Market ! And we got them for a mere pittance. Really.
Two of them, exactly alike, in two different shops.
Cheap.... Cheeep !
So today I was not looking for anything in particular, maybe something like a rug for the living room ...
perhaps something pretty in cobalt blue glass ( I collect, I collect ! ) or a surprise thing that we didn't realize that we had to have until we saw it.
Well, today we didn't see it.
But there were some fun things to look at .. If only we had a garden !
Or somewhere to fly off to..
My bags could be packed in a flash !
There was even a convertible if we wanted one !
You never know what you will find at the Flea Market .. more on that later~
