The Flea::

market is how I spent my gorgeous Sunday. Wanna see my purchases?






My goal was to purchase millinery flowers. Oh how I fulfilled my goal! I wish I had more money! I also found a stack of ceramic dishes, painted with dainty pink flowers. They are vintage and almost every one has a chip in it. But to me it's character! Should I make them into candles or fill them with treats for the Etsy shop? Let me know what you think.
Since I was a young lass (Thanks Nancie for catching the typo), i've always loved surprise goody bags. I remember when Gift Gate (a Sanrio store) use to sell bags full of stuff you couldn't see until you purchased it and ripped it open to find lots of fun goodness. So you can imagine how I felt when I got 2 ziploc bags full of random jewlery (bottom photos). Kev and I spent an hour or so rummaging through the pile. I found some really cool pieces, but there is a share of the cheezy items!

I also found this, my favorite purchase of all




It's a pin cushion with a measuring tape (couldn't get a descent photo of the tape) at the base! Agh! I adore this piece! I'm starting to become a regular at the Flea, good for my soul, not so good for the pocketbook and my shoulders. It takes me the rest of the weekend for my shoulders to recover from putting the weight of my purchases upon them. I need to invest in a shopping cart. But you know me, I don't want just a basic modern one, no no...I always gotta be different. I want a vintage one that is weathered but in good condition. One that has history and I want it to be silver. Picky Picky!

I spent the other part of my weekend sewing this


It was one of those toy panel outfits. I think some baby blue pom pom trim would really finish this cute little outfit!
