Flea Market Finds

I just realized that I haven't shown you my lovelies from the last flea market.  I think I have pulled together all the items that I am keeping.  I listed some of the other goodies in my etsy store.  I actually went twice!!  On Friday, it was raining, so many of the vendors had their treasures under wraps.  I felt so cheated, so the wonderful Mr. Hughes suggested we go back Sunday after Church.  So this is my loot!  I got a couple of vintage frames and a great old medicine cabinet that just might have to have a little makeover.  And here is a closeup of one of those items that has been seeking me:

Ahhhh ironstone!   Look at the patina!  And it has a few cracks here and there!  And, it is large!! I found this lovely in a booth full of mishmash on Friday.  The gentleman that ran the booth informed me that he was a picker for a very expensive antique store in Nashville.  And that he picked it especially for her.  Well, I told him that she was out of luck because I was taking that pitcher home!!  For $15!  I know if I would have let her buy it, I would be lusting after it for the bargain price of $115!

And, it wouldn't be a productive trip without a few letters...

Pretty neat, huh?  I am not sure what I am going to do with them yet but they sure are fabulous.  And, I made away with some numbers too....

This is actually a deck of cards from some old card game. There are numbers 1-15.  I am keeping Baby Hughes' birthday and will find something to do with it.   I will list sets of these in my shop soon.

Well, that is all of my flea market goodies for this month.  Oh... look at what I got in the mail today!
Mr. Hughes was sweet enough to design me a business card!  I feel so official.  I want to thank all of you for your sweet, encouraging comments about the opening of my etsy shop.  It really means alot to me!

So, I hope to show some more of the fall decorating... it has been raining since Sunday... and I am itching to get some more pumpkins
