One of the things I most enjoy about your blogs is ogling over your flea market and estate sale finds. On more than one occasion a fly on my wall has surely seen me drooling! In the spirit of sharing, I give you...
My MOST AMAZING booty, fortune, stash, cache, score, flea market haul EVER! There are not enough words to describe the sheer joy of my trip to our local flea last Saturday. Put in perspective, I've been in a real flea funk these last several months ~ hardly finding a thing.
Not this time!
Eeek! I've been wanting an old shopping cart forever. Even better? $10! It's wheels are a bit cruddy and two spokes are broken but I don't care ~ I think she's a real beauty! Luckily, I nabbed her early on in the day and she happily carried my treasures.
Yesterday I wheeled her over to the guest cottage...
...where the indoor light is a little better and snapped some close-ups to share with you:
Vintage pillow cases will be transformed into aprons (shocking!), a giant milk glass cup (probably a planter of some sort?) that I have no idea what I'll do with it but it was a buck and soooo pretty! A little creamer and tea cup that I'm thinking of using for candles:
And this little darling:
(Guess I should've bathed her before taking pictures!)
I'm not sure exactly what kind of beast she is...a cow? Donkey? No matter, I love her and think she'll make a perfect pin cushion!
A big hobnail mirror and two wall scones. Look at the ruffles. Cute, right?! They're plastic which probably explains why the vendor sold all three to me for $12. Can you imagine these painted a robin's egg blue? I'm considering.
Anyone out there in Blogville know exactly what this is?
It's like a big creamer but with a whole in the bottom. Odd, but again, for a buck I couldn't resist!
Eight vintage patterns. Haven't decided what I'll do with them but am leaning toward some sort of decoupage project.
And four frames. The large one is oval with convex glass ~ gorgeous! (If anyone knows the lady in the photo let me know). The three small ones are probably going to get a coat of paint.
I feel like I've turned a corner and have now entered the world of Flea Market Find Awesomeness. I'm happy to be here and am gonna enjoy my stay ~ already thinking ahead to my next visit!
