Last weekend, I went to one of my favorite local flea markets. Do you like my lovely chalkboard I acquired? I was quite pleased - it was a great price but I almost passed it up. Yes, I could have found a frame and made one myself, but I liked this one so much - it was just perfect. Now, I just need to find some chalk!
My second find was this painted chair with wicker seat. Not that I had a space in mind for it, but I find it hard to pass up white painted chairs. I rearranged my bedroom a bit and now it has a home there and looks quite sweet.
Do you see the sweet little flowers painted on the seat? Once I spotted it, I asked the vendor what her price was. "Oh, nobody has even asked me about this chair today!" was her reply. So a quick negotiation and the chair was mine.
While I was setting up a vignette with the chair, Gracie got into the act.
There is a little glitter and feather bird inside the cage and she had her eye on it.
My silly cat; I had to rescue that bird from her three times!
Back to my flea market finds....
I'm beginning to amass a little collection of vintage salt and pepper shakers. I have several with German glass glitter in them already. While I didn't need to collect any more, the vendor immediately reduced the price by two thirds once I held this in my hand. Well, how could I pass that up? I love that they come with this decorative little tray.
My last find I actually acquired at a small flea market about a month ago. This little blue-green vase was the only treasure I spotted but I am quite happy with it. Don't those gerbera daisies appear happy? They make me happy; oh, what a happy flower they are!
