Martinez the little town I live in is full of antique stores and a couple of funky antique malls. As in most treasure hunts sometimes you have luck and sometimes you strike out. Today I had a lucky day. I was on the hunt for items to add to my poetry pieces. My greatest find was an old hat with the neatest flower trim all over it that I plan to cut off and use in my pieces, the color is great. Also the old pens, I'm not sure what I'll do with them but they were to pretty to leave in the store. Laces are always a good find, a girl can never have too much lace. My little town did me proud today and I was happy to call it home.
