1350 Antique Booths!

....and my three cats are weary at the whole idea of it. Ha! Yep, today is Antique Expo weekend here in Portland. Wahoozer doozer!! It's the last big antique show of the year and I'm ready!! I have my walking shoes, my tracking device (that would be my cell phone in case I get lost in the throngs of people), and a cash machine (that would be dear husband, Bill). :o)

Oh, what delightful goodies await me on this weekend before Halloween? Lots of treats, I'm sure!

Warmest bear hugs, Aleta

P.S. The dainty little tabby on the left is Gracie. The orangecicle is Max. Mr. Fancypants birman on the right is Walker. Black, orange and white.....it's Halloween at my house all year long! ;o)

Oh Aleta...look at how beautiful they all are. Max has grown into such a gorgeous cat. So hard to believe where he came from...isn't it? I sure miss those little bundles of fur. Thanks for posting a picture of Max.

I assume the sofa belongs to the cats? Do they all sleep there together often?

Furry kitty hugs,
Shantell

This is the cutest picture of all three of them! I can't believe they take up the entire couch! Too funny!

Love, B

1350??!! good grief!! I can't even imagine it. That could take all day and you won't even see half of them.
Oh, just a minute; what am I saying?... this is the Queen of Antique-ing here... silly me.

Aleta said...

Vee,
The summer show has almost 1750 booths!!! :o)

Shantell,
Sometimes I think that sofa is just a glorified cat bed!! I'm constantly using the defuzzer thingie on it. :o(

Pictures of my finds will be posted in a day or two!

Warmest bear hugs, Aleta

Hello, Aleta,

It was so lovely visiting with you last night!

Expo is indeed a wonderful thing for us here in the Portland area! I'm glad you mentioned that those sleepy heads were of no inclination to traverse it; perhaps in their dreams?
