Last weekend's trip to the flea market proved successful with these finds. Just loving these pretty boxes, waiting to be filled with a little of this and that.
Almost Ready for a Party
A vintage pinkish/apricot colored cake stand was a wonderful find with its detailed design. A small saucer will be used to make a cupcake stand and the pink dish will hold trinkets. I nabbed the petite fork and ladle set by Reed and Barton as it was being eyed upon by others. It was so pretty with its decorative handles, I knew it had to come home with me.
Buttons, Buttons and Bows
Oh, what fabulous buttons were awaiting me! Clear lavender, some rhinestone squares and a variety of styles. Add some tiny lavender flower bows and purple velvet flowers and it makes a wonderful package of buttons and bows.
New Animal Friends
One of my favorite finds was the chef pig. He looks right at home on my kitchen counter. Mr. Rabbit is ready for Easter and welcoming all in my home. The butterflies and pink birds will make sweet embellishments on cards sent to friends. And the rubber bunny-duck? Well, I couldn't resist this little fellow for a co-worker who collects ducks. She had helped me with a project last week and this was my little thank you for her.
Yes, Mr. Pig was a great find. Sometimes you just have to buy things that make you happy.
