[See ya in May, Paris!!!]
[Sun, old metal scales, and vintage Dior shades...what better way to spend a gorgeous Wednesday in Switzerland?]
[This man is putting shorts on a skeleton...I bet he doesn't even know if the skeleton likes shorts...]
[Did I mention it was next to a sweet skate park?]
I hadn't realized at the time how long I had been holding the items I had procured, and how long of a walk back I had back to the "F" bus stop at Gare Cornavin. By the time I got home I was sore all over. At least I wore my hiking shoes since I knew it was going to be a day of serious walking and thrifting.
Here are my sweet market scores! I wanted to take home everything, but my little arms could only carry so much. I actually can't believe how much I did carry home, as that large bowl is metal, the mirror is fragile, and the scale is also metal. It's amazing what incentive a design plan can be when expecting physical labor out of yourself. I'd love to be able to get everything we need for our new place in Thoiry via the flea market, and skip the quasi-inevitable-Ikea-step in between, but I guess that's just going to depend on my luck and haggling skills...
Sidenote: A special congrats to my hubby and all the guys and dolls over at CERN - today was truly a historic day and I watched a hell of a lot of it on the live webcast...I have no idea what it is exactly that I watched, but I know it was of epic proportions for physics and the world at large. Yeah for proton collisions!!!
