Over the Weekend Part 1: Brimfield (fail)


Sometimes I'm really bad at documenting what I'm up to. Like this past friday for instance. It was actually quite busy: our friend Eric came down from Maine, we drove to Shrewsbury and met up with Adam and Punky, and then on to the Brimfield flea market where we were joined by Jen and Kev (and sweet Rowan). But what did I document? the fun? the food? the festivities? no, none of that. I made sure to document the Bikini For Men. Priorities people.

What I got at Brimfield: three necklaces, a purse, and a woven table-decorative-thingy (none of which are pictured). Stay tuned for photos of Saturday (I promise there's more than one). Oh and we also went to a show at Ralph's in Worcester Friday night, where i realized that I'm old and can't stay up past 11 anymore.

Seriously, I am an old lady. I'm about to turn 24, but I am ready to be in PJs and knitting around dinner time. :)

I grew up south of Shrewsbury in England, near the village of Brimfield. This might sound stupid but I'd never realised there was another Shrewsbury in New England.

NiB: how funny! Yes Shresbury here is right near Brimfield!

I live in Worcester, England! Near Shrewsbury! I didn't know these places in existed in New England either. So funny to hear about all the same place names!

Ahh Brimfield...so much love. I got some good stuff this year, although it didn't seem like it was as good as last year's show. However, somehow I missed that wonderful 'bikini for men'!

just posted some pics, I nearly forgot to take them and started snapping after 4 hours of wandering...woops.

I guess I'm getting old too, since I've been bailing on events that sound like too much effort. But I prefer to think that actually maybe I just like getting enough sleep!

And I've found that since I have my blog I'm way worse at documenting events. Perhaps because there are so many pictures of me now that I get a bit of camera fatigue when I go out...

That mankini pack looks pretty awesome - especially the guy's contented smirk LOL
