Another Saturday of flea market adventures! The weather here was beautiful and such fun to get out and enjoy the day treasure hunting.
In the first flea market booth we went into there was this cute little lamb. It matches another one I found a couple months ago but it's about half the size.





I would love to have a collection of these glasses! The colors are so me!!!!!





This is my favorite find of the day. This adorable set of snowmen candle holders. Aren't they precious? I love the pink and blue colors and shiny glitter.



I found this vintage pink ornament in the same booth as the snowmen. I am starting to see a pattern here with all of my pink finds today!


I couldn't pass up this fuuny little book. I think I will have to take time and read this story. It sounds like it will be funny.



Hello! Twyla here. These are the treasures I chose and just like Lindsey, I seem to have had my pink radar on.


We stopped by the thrift store first where I found the pink vase above. I am always looking for things that will come in handy to hold craft supplies in our craft room. We have a room designated for crafts, but unfortunately it also is storage area. It is not good when three members of this family are collectors who don't like to get rid of anything. We have big dreams and ideas of what we want our craft room to look like. Hopefully, we'll be able to show some pictures soon.

I got a package in the mail today! Always exciting and especially when I seen who it was from! None other than Suzie Button, one of my Halloween swap partners.


It felt like Christmas, I had so many goodies to open!



Thank you so much, Suzie, for making this such a pleasurable swap experience. I truely appreciated everything that you sent.


Isn't this wreath gorgeous?! She did a wonderful job.


Have a wonderful Sunday everyone! Twyla and Lindsey

I'm so glad you loved everything, Twyla! The one item isn't a table runner, but a kitchen towel. I am lucky I have a Husqvarna embroidery machine, I just love to use it! Your pics were great, Twyla! I can't wait to see what I get from you too! Suzie

Suzie Button said...

Oh, Twyla, did you open up the container? There's more goodies in there too!

Suzie Button said...

Oh, never mind! I see now you did open it! I'm tired, but I have to caption a news program in 15 minutes to 11:30 p.m. central, so I can't go to bed! UGH!

Hi Girlies,
... First.. one more big Thank you to Twyla for my wonderful, cuddly Halloween house shoes... ooohh how I love them!

When I saw that glass... how I flashed back to the 60's!!! they were sold back then filled with Jelly in the grocery stores. My mom, who was big in to "Early American" style decorating, LOVED those glasses, and we ate a lot of Jelly, so she could have a whole set of glasses! Of course they disappeared over the years. Thanks for taking me "back" What a great find!
