First antique open market



On Sunday, after tree hours of cooking "moussaka" , while we were eating , I heard on TV that at that time began the bazaar of antiques !! I was pretty tired but decided to go !The park which contained the bazaar was near my house , about five stops by bus .... All  the years I live here, has never been open -air bazaar !!
I went !!!

Click to enlarge the photos !









It took me an hour to see the things because it was small.....It had only twelve benches ...The people there they  said that was good for start , because granted the permission from the municipality !!
Some of them they did not gave the permission to take pics !!!
                                            Of course I bought   three little things !!!!!
                                                           Have a nice day !!


                                                              For Rosemary  
                                                            Is it correct ?

Rosemary's game continue


I really liked the flowers game that Rosemary posted at 21/5/2012 .http://wherefivevalleysmeet.blogspot.com  .So , if I have  her permission I would like to post today something similar. I do this not only for game but really I don't know the name of this flower. I bought this from Flower Exhibition 2012 because I liked the red colour  and the strange  figure of flower .

 
 Seller gave me guidelines on taking care   and he just told me that this flower imports in Greece from Italy !!
                               
                                        Is it true my Dear Anna ? Do you know this flower ??
                           and he told me  the name  !!!   In Greece language is funny  "avouliera " means
                                                     the egg's bag !!  I suppose wrong  !!!!
                     I saw something similar but I am not sure !! Please, my friends if you know the name
                     of the  flower , I will  be grateful if  you released   me from looking
                                               at the website Kew Gardens !!!
