Great Flea Market Finds Part 2

I was supposed to show my GREAT FLEA MARKET FINDS last Friday.  However, we were so busy entertaining Mr. M.'s cousins that have been staying with us for the weekend for our family reunion and the 4th of July.  I just ran out of time.  SO, I will show you for WHITE WEDNESDAY with Kathleen at Faded Charm.

This was truck load # 2.  Don't you just love the #5!  I bought it to up to put on the SHED.  Most of the rest of the finds have already found a home somewhere in the house, maybe not permanent but they have a home.

Do you see the chair peaking out from behind the window and the quilt?  That is the chair I want to cover with the new coffee sack I found, oh and I plan to paint it white, of course.

I must say my favorite finds may be all of the corbels I was able to find at a shop in the flea market.  I found 3 sets of 2 and one that is not a pair.

I put up two, one in the kitchen in the entry way.


And one in the living room entrance.

I did not have a large enough entrance to put them both in, but I still like the way they look.

This is some of van load #3. I found a cheese box already painted WHITE, I love finds that require no work! The little metal basket is going to work great for extra towels in the bathroom. I found a couple of edged pillowcases for using on the deck pillows. I also found a white platter and a small white pitcher.

Another favorite find is this large apothecary grinder.

I was lucky to find some embroidered linens. I think this garden wheel barrel is my favorite.
I am not sure if I am going to frame it or make it into a pillow.

A beautiful rose monogram.

This cabinet I showed last week, it had to be dismantled to get it home.

Well, I have put it back together and I had intended it for the dinning room, it did not look good there so I have put it into my office and it is in a happy place now.

Do you see the angled corbel on top of the cabinet? 
 It is another find, I plan on attaching it to the wall in the bathroom and hanging a chandelier from it.


This necklace is one of my favorite finds of the weekend. 
 I just love all the little pieces, watch face, key, crystal and lock together.

I am not much of jewelry person.
 For me to wear a necklace on any given day it has to be special. 
 I bought this necklace at North of Eden Creations shop located at Shupp's Grove in Adamstown, PA.  Tina has the most amazing things in her shop, definitely worth a visit.

  Thank you for visiting me.
  Don't forget to go back and check out all the other White Wednesday posts.

  5. That wheelbarrow design is sooo cuuute! And speaking of No. 5 and linens, I saw that set of napkins with the little tag that said set of 5 at the thrift store and new exactly where they belonged!
