I am recovered! Stitches are out, strange side effects are gone and my one week bedroom vacation has come to an end. It was high time to go outside. 
Tops on my list of favourite things to do is wandering very very slowly through flea markets. After a while your eyes start to fuzz and everything looks the same, but everything before that point is pure happiness. The biggest flea market in town came this weekend, and off we went to comb the stalls.

What we got:
Right off the bat, Claudia scored a freebie. A wooden bear with wings. Completely random (creepy) and she loves it.  
Eloise found an über Waldorf-inspired doll that she's named Henny.
I found a little craft type sewing machine for 5 euros and a pair of broken, vintage, Ray Ban sunglasses for 50 cents. Though they may make me look like a have a broken nose. Still, 50 cents!
We had a little picnic lunch and found a fake bird. Then we found a tick in Eloise's hair and it was time to go. Still a great day and one that made me very grateful that my recovery went as quickly as it did. It was good to be outside.

I was aww-ing all the way through until I got to the tick part! Hope you sent him to tick heaven!

Aaron's turned into a softy when it comes to bugs. I think he lightly placed in back in the grass.

Claudia doesn't look like Claudia without bangs! Crazy. You'll buy anything if they can tell you it's vintage. I promise not to laugh at your crooked nose when I see you but you know Peter will be all over it.

I deleted it! Hopefully it doesn't look so bad in person!

Is it just me or does Claudia look like a young Jodie Foster. (circa - Taxi Driver)
