Well I don’t know if I lucked out because of Father’s Day, or if God himself was just smiling down on me today…. but I had the most luck I have ever had at the flea market. There were so many treasures, I ran out of my cash, Josh’s cash and started in on checks! I couldn’t believe it! I was all upset because we got there pretty late (9 a.m.) and it was packed with cars in the parking lot. But for some reason, there was a ton of good stuff, and everywhere people were talking about how slow they were and how sales were just terrible today. It was amazing! Josh and I got some really great stuff and wheeled and dealed with prices because they were desperate for sales! I was in heaven! We were even late to Fathers Day lunch, because I just couldn’t bring myself to leave!
Here are some of the neat goodies I purchased today…. a shabby blue screwdriver, a yellow sprinkler, a “potted ham and tongue” meat pot, a black and cream meat pot, 2 french babydoll style nightgowns….. (The meat pots I have been wanting for awhile. They are very old english antiques, and I love the black and white… they go with my kitchen very well.)
I also got these pretty french plates that are black and white. There is a total of six, and they will look great on my display shelves. A french linen pillowcase with D + J; a black and white sign (not sure what it was for, I just like the black and white). Two old bread pans used for commercial baking; a pretty old grate and a few old flower frogs…..
Then I found this neat old metal purse top with a cute little chain. I loved how it had small holes at the bottom, so I can hang things from it.
Here are my two new nightgowns hung up so you can see them better. They look so summery, I can’t wait to slip into one tonight after my bath. They are prefect for these hot summer nights we have been having.
Josh even found a few treasures for himself. (Mostly beer paraphernalia… like a new tap for his keg-orator, and some beer mugs). All in all it was a great day! And there are still several hours of sunlight left! I am off to try and get some color on my very white legs! Hope you are all having a great Father’s Day!
Welcome, to my new dream home.
Oh my goodness! Have you seen the new Country Home? I am just in LOVE with one of the featured homes. It makes me want to just throw away everything I have and start over. I love the mostly white decor and faded old wood pieces mixed in. And the home owner has such amazing accessories. I am so envious of the blue and white ceramic piece in the kitchen and the large footed bowl… I love, love, love everything about this kitchen. The white bright cabinets and the dark solid counter top…. the white panelled hood, the dark wood floors. It’s perfect.
Have you ever seen a home that made you crazy like this? I mean I am fairly certain that this is supposed to be MY home. Just look at the dining room. I sooo want that chandelier. I love the buffet, and the white walls, the simple window shades, the grain sacks on the window seat, the white creamy bowls on the perfect dining table…
And now for my new living room… isn’t she pretty?
I want that large basket, and the wood piece next to the fireplace. The linen cushions… I want it all. (I have to admit though, as much as I like the sofa, it doesn’t look very comfortable. And now that I’m thinking about that, where is the t.v? I can’t just watch a fire every night…). Ok, I think I’m calming down, my reality is slowing setting in, and I may not actually throw away everything I currently own. Thank God for flea market Sunday tomorrow. I may be able to find a new piece that will make me just excited enough to lose some of my focus on this home.
