First off, let me say "Thank You" for all of the nice comments about my Patriotic Wreath. I have to admit, it's not an original idea - I saw one in a magazine ad a while back and knew I had to make one. I don't think there are very many real original ideas anymore. We see things and adjust them to our liking.
But, thanks again. I am enjoying it.
The Flea Market was not held last Saturday because of a huge National horse show. So, I hit two garage sales and this is what I got.
A cute black cat hanging for Halloween (I don't mean the cat was hanging - it was a wall hanging piece, OK?), a pretty white china mail holder, an atrocious lamp shade - but look at the gorgeous shape - not the cover, some neat fabric pieces, some lace and doilies (naturally), a vintage pincushion, a set of old potholders in a hanger, a Victorian book, and some old watches.
This vintage wall holder has potholders in it - isn't it cute?
Some really gorgeous laces.
Here's the mail holder and some doilies and a cute little hand towel decorated with a bow made out of rick rack! And the old watches! Are you curious about what I'm going to do with the watches? Stay tuned.
I have several old pincushions and just loved this one. I have one similar but not quite the same. Look at all of the detail work on this one - all of the tiny rolled roses. So delicate.
And yes, this is what grandmothers let their precious granddaughters do when they are at their house.
She ended up with more chocolate on her face and clothes than she ate I think. But, she sure enjoyed it! Laynee turned three years old on Saturday. Happy Birthday Laynee!
