Flea Marketing!











Hi all, and happy Tuesday.
I'm just about ready to go and get my hair done. Gotta get that color once a month.
I thought you might like to see some photos of my flea market day last Sunday.
I got that really pretty and heavy silver plate tray for $10. The sideways picture of the clock (Didn't have time to fix picture sorry) I got for $5, I know a clock that doesn't work for $5, but I like the way it looks. I got it from one of the nice ladies you see in the photo. Now the Ginger tin, I love it. It came out of an old store. I guess people used to buy their spices and teas loose from tins. Anyway, not a bargain at $75, but my husband got the guy down to $50. It's going somewhere in my kitchen.
I had to take the photo of the bat and bugs. I thought it was a little creepy, but cool. The rest were just some random shots, you see I always get so involved in looking that I forget to take the pictures for you guys!!
It was a fun day, and the weather was perfect, considering the day before we had thunderstorms.
Have a great week!
Chat again soon.
Love,
Rosemary

Hi Rosemary,
Love that clock and your random photos. You're right, those bugs (especially that HUGE spider) is creepy. Love your Flea Mkt music, so fun! Have a great day, always feel like a new person after I get my hair done... enjoy!

Hi Rosemary,

Lovely to see some photos of the flea market ~ the ginger tin and the old clock face are lovely.

Now you need to find a working clock for $5 that has a torn-up outside, and switch out the innards with your pretty clock's.

Oh, I love bats! That looks like an old-world bat to me. Too bad your daughter didn't see it, since she loves Halloween so very much!

Thank you so much for your prayers and kind words, it means so much to me.

Have a wonderful Wednesday,

Take care in those thunderstorms! Everyone is reporting signs of spring, but we are still in winter mode out here!

Hi Rosemary, I had to come over from the Graphic Fairy and see your chandelier T-shirt. Very cool, I love it and the other ones posted here. You seem to have very good results w/ the iron-on images; I'm inspired to give it a go myself. And I'm quite envious of your lovely vintage finds, especially the clock. Take care, Nancy
