It's funny because we all find things for each other. No trying to outdo each other, no elbowing or hair pulling and shreaking - just an all around good time! After shopping, we had to have a little breakfast -- more like the "classic heart attack on a plate". But, oh, is it so good. Homemade hashbrowns and country sausage gravy - washed down with a diet cola, of course.
After enjoying that healthy start to the day, we have to look at all the great things we found and ooh and aahh and giggle with delight like little girls. I think the best part of this little flea market is spending time with these sweet, creative women. They make it special. Thanks you guys!
I took a couple of pictures of my purchases. This little cabinet is unusual and looks like two pieces that have been married into one. I will separate them and add some little touches to them.
This is a picture of the rest of the goodies I found.
There is a birdhouse, a Majolica-like small plate, baby socks and booties, pearl necklaces, old pictures and ephemera. Not pictured is a white, linen tablecloth to make pillows and an old, black picture frame. The next picture is just a grouping that was so sweet I had to take a picture of it. I love those creamy tones. These pieces belong to one of the vendors at the flea market. She was nice enough to allow me to take a picture.
In addition to all this stuff, I found a few things at Friday estate sales. There were some old wire baskets, glass knobs, an old suitcase, a primitive wooden stool, and the best -- four bags of white, mother-of-pearl buttons. Woo-hoo!!! After this buying frenzy, I came home and starting making some crowns out of aviary wire, glitter, lace and tinsel. I'll show them to you later this week. Right now it's time to head to the kitchen and whip up some dinner. I know, you're thinkin' how can she eat after that breakfast? It's for my hubby and besides that, breakfast was eight hours ago and it was just a half order of hashbrowns and.......
