How was your weekend? Ours was great. The weather here in New England is crisp now and the leaves are turning lovely shades. There is nothing like Fall in New England. Beautiful foliage, apple picking and lots of pumpkins and gourds. And the air smells so yummy.
Some of the flea markets only have about another month to go. We went to two of them this weekend and boy did I score:) We woke up early and it was still dark.I wanted to share with you what I found.
I bought 4 of these wagon wheels. I don't know what it is about them, but I just love them.
This very loved bird house complete with a nest inside came home with me.
It is a little white barn.
OK, THIS is the best deal of the weekend!!!!!! I know you have seen some of my vintage dress forms before but I have found another unique one. Well, it is unique to me.
LOOK, she has a butt!!! Have you ever seen one like this? The gentleman who sold it to me said it was used to make fitted skirts. I just love it.
It is complete with the cage at the bottom and the peddle to raise and lower it. Now I have to find the perfect place to put her:)
My favorite flower guys were there selling gorgeous flowers as always. Just look at these roses. I wish you could smell them. My granddaughter told me that they were delicious:) I will smile every morning when I come down stairs and see them. I really miss the guys during the winter. Their personalities are are so cheerful, they really make my day:)
This great ironstone pot is another find. It is perfect for my weekly flowers. Love the handle.
These two silver crumb catchers were too pretty to pass up. They have lots of detail.
Have you ever seen these pin cushion dolls? They are soooo pretty. She will sit on the shelf with my other 5 girls.
Again with the sideways photo:( The is a very old wall pocket. I think I will fill it with cuttings of ivy.
An ironstone pot, old clock, mirror, and millinery flowered hat. I have collected different hand mirrors for a while now. I am planning on hanging them all on a wall. I want to re-wallpaper the one wall in my bathroom
and then I will hang them.
As you can see, it was a very successful weekend:) Now I have to find fabulous places to display everything. That is something I totally enjoy. It is a good thing that I have my trusty cart to hall everything to the truck;)
What did you do this weekend????? I would love to know:)
'Till next time......
