Since there was no flea market last week and it has been the coldest, rainest 10 day period I can remember, I was really looking forward to the flea market this week. It was a little disappointing, only half full with vendors even though it is warming up and the sun is shining brightly. So most of this stuff is from yesterday, when Dave and I left Jack with Oma to do some solo yard saling. In the pouring down rain!
Above are a set of wooden angel ornaments. I am not sure why, but I am really coming around to the little wooden ornaments lately. Usually I only buy glass, but yesterday I bought 2 sets of wooden ones. The other set is older than this one, but was harder to photograph.
A set of totally cute old Sears canisters. These are destined for the pantry where I use old canisters to hold small package of stuff or to store nuts and things instead of buying new plastic organizers.
A forget-me-not plate. I want to redo the decorative plates and platters on the kitchen wall.
A pile of glass garland. I will restring them, taking off the broken beads and mixing up the colors a little bit more.
The best postcards ever! Pink flowered dirigibles. One was mailed in 1910 the other in 1912. I really MUST find more of these!
Since I started posting more of the flea market/thrift store stuff, I find myself surprised at how true to a certain palette/style I actually remain while wandering around aimlessly. Obviously I am subconsciously drawn to certain things. Maybe that is why when I look at other people's blogs I think "Gee, I never see that around here?" It is probably right underneath my nose the whole time, but seeing it through another blogger's eyes gives me a new perspective.
Interesting food for thought anyway. (Well, maybe only interesting to me.) :-)
