Flea Market Sundays

Today was not a jump up and down with excitement day at the flea market, but, I am still in that honeymoon phase because it is just so nice to be able to go again. It even rained on me a little, and once I got over the panic that a bird had just pooped on me, I didn't even notice the fat raindrops. I picked up this sweet little pair of bunnies, and the apron they are sitting on;
and this great vintage cookie jar (minus the lid). It is a little hard to see, but it is tri-colored with red, white and yellow paint and lambs and bunnies and ducks on it. It is currently filled with daffodils and on the kitchen counter.
And my silly kid has been spending a lot of time standing on his head. He was in trouble this afternoon, and I scolded him by using his entire name. "Jack (middle name) Smith!*" And he replied with, "Who is Smith?" So I said, "That is you silly! Your name is..." And then he says, "No silly! my name is 'the baby'!" It still makes me laugh.

*His last name is not Smith. My last name is still up for debate. How's *that* for interesting? LOL


  1. Oh,those bunnies! Oh,that cookie jar! It is funny,"my baby" would probably say something like that too! Oh,and my last name is confooosing too. I use my maiden as my union (acting) name and the big one always quibbles!

  2. Ooh, that cookie jar is simply wonderful! What a find. I have to laugh about your last name--you sent me your name/addy the first time and it was one thing, then you sent me a pkg and the name was completely different! LOL You had me confused!

    PS--Jack's doing an excellent downward-facing dog in that last picture. Wish I were so flexible! :)

  3. This story cracks me up. When I was growing up, our family was close friends with another family whose youngest son's name was Matthew, but everyone called him Buddy.
    On his first day of kindergarten as the teacher was introducing herself to him, he said indignantly "I'm not Matthew, I'm buddy!" After that, we all had to be very careful to call him Matthew.

  4. That is a beautiful jar, my grandmother had a juice pitcher just like that.

    I think we are swap partners via folded ginghham. E-mail me with ideas if you like!!

  5. Like the other Heidi, I was going to comment on your son's perfect downward facing dog posture!

    I also have a diffrent last name than my husband. I know it will get confusing with kids, but I'm pretty sure I want to keep my own name, as does my husband!

  6. Those bunnies are so cute! My mother totally would have fought you for them. ;)

    I thought about the whole what will we name the kids thing if I keep my maiden name . . . I've decided to change my name and now begins the lo-o-o-o-ng process starting with (groan) SOCIAL SECURITY.

  7. Such a sweet silly boy!
    I wish my middle name was my maiden name. I miss my last name. I guess I could change it... but sounds like a pain to do.
    Fun Easter finds!
