well… it wasn’t exactly Canton… but it was still fun!
got up on saturday… grabbed a quick joe and headed to the flea.
teeny tiny flea it was.
i actually don’t think i’ve ever been to one so small.
i made a quick run through… seeing what i could see…
hoping for some BIG items…
some neat furniture finds…
not this time.
but i did find a few things that i think will be neat!
a sifter for fresh flowers.
an old bucket… i love how you can still see the old label.
she’ll be filled with many things i’m sure
from umbrellas to wrapping paper to plants.
i adore this red metal box… ADORE!
i have a THING for metal boxes… boxes… i love them!
they can hold all kinds of goodies… i think it’s just the IDEA of them though…
you never know what you might find INSIDE a box!
and then the most fun of all…
an old milking stool!
anyone have a cow or two i could borrow?
they played school with it this weekend… so funny… why not!
i think it will make a perfect little handy stepping stool for the kitchen!
i might not have found the the perfect furniture pieces…
but i think i found some perfectly FUN pieces!
i better be like a flea and get hopping!
here’s to Monday…
filled with BIG possibilities… BIG hopes… BIG leaps!
with vintage lamps continues!
and this last weekend i not only found ONE… i found TWO!
one at one shop… one at another shop.
i couldn’t believe my eyes…
could it be…
that this was a match to the other lamp!
i’ve posted before about finding these happy lamps… see.
there is SOMETHING about them i adore.
it’s like instant character in a room… a pop of fun… a hint of hip.
these are the lamps after i finished them more to my liking.
a fresh blue with a bit of raw umber.
i LOVE them!
can you SEE the smile on my face?
they are really BIG…
well… okay… i think so!
and the fact that i found a PAIR!
now… if i could just find the right side tables/dressers…
i’ve only been looking for years!
i tell you… it’s the little things that do it… make me do a happy dance!
what little thing lately has made you do a happy dance?
