Flea Market Finds with Jamie!!

I had a very exciting day yesterday!! I got to meet my blog friend Jamie of Simply Me Art!! My husband took a few days off this week, so we decided to try a Tuesday Flea Market, we have been hearing about.
It just so happens to be near where Jamie lives. She sometimes picks up some of her antique pieces there, to create her Simply beautiful jewelry.
It was so fun to meet her, and chat with her. I know you have all seen her picture on her blog,
but she is even more beautiful in person. She has a great personality as well, and we hit it off immediately. I could talk to her for hours. Even though I am 10 years older than her, it was like we knew we would be friends.
If you haven't visited her blog or Etsy shop, hurry right over. She is a doll, and so creative.
These are the two pieces that I picked up at the flea market. A little wire basket for a mere .50cents, and this cool zinc birdcage for $4. I think the birdcage will go into my garden, with some pretty flowers.

Jamie and I have another flea market outing planned for the end of the month. Can't wait Jamie!

I haven't been to a real flea market in years. You're so lucky to live in an area where you have them regularly. Great finds!

Hi Rosemary, my name is Rosemary too! I accidentally found your blog when I was searching on Google and it opened up a whole new community of people like me who enjoy flea markets, estate sales, and creative ideas and pursuits. I loved reading your blog and all the creative things that you do.I especially loved the crown and the way you painted the tile in your daughter's house. Visit my blog when you get a chance.
