New Finds and A New Friend

Sunday I went to one of my favorite flea markets at the Port of Entry Square.
It is not the largest by far, but I have been going to this flea market for at least 20 years.


It has sentimental value.
It is where my first shop was located and I have such good memories of my old shop.

I found some great treasures.
The best one of all is a fellow blogger who lives in the same town as I do.
Lynne from Wonderfully Made.

At first I was excited to see a new vendor at the flea market, and one who has great treasures.
Oh, I would have liked to take home more than what I did.


There were two great framed maps that would have looked wonderful in my boy's room
BUT I think they are going with the Star Wars theme.
Then I started talking to Lynne and found out she is a blogger and lives local to me.

Here is some of my treasures.

I found the cutest pair of vintage cowboy curtains.
I will make my boys some pillows for their bunk beds.

Cute little ironstone pitchers and a simple silver cup.
These are a few of the treasures I acquired from Lynne.

A simple blue striped cotton shower curtain that will be made into pillows.

A twin coverlet also from Lynne's booth.
They make the best slipcovers, so soft and such texture.

A new quilt to add to my collection.
My good friend Nancy always has beautiful quilts.
Like I said, this is the summer of accepting blue for me.

A darling little birdhouse for my feathered friends.

An amazing aqua bench that has already found a home in my downstairs bathroom.
The little shelf is great for holding extra towels and magazines.

a simple zinc sap bucket that I plan to embellish with some graphics.
I like the height, it will work perfect for my white hydrangeas. 

I also found the amazing black frame and a little white bench at Lynne's booth.
I wasn't kidding when I told her how excited I was that she was at the flea market.
She has a great eye.
I am really wishing I had bought one of the maps, maybe she will be at the next flea market in August.

Thanks for stopping by.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer!
