Last weekend as we celebrated my birthday I got to decide where I wanted to go so naturally I said flea markets!!!!

So we spent three wonderful days going through our favorite flea markets in our area. We found so many wonderful goodies and this is just a handful of what all we came home with!

This sweet vintage apron card was my most exciting find! I had seen Barbara of Oodles and oodles had one and needless to say I was determined to have one myself someday! It's too cute!

I bought a small bag of cards at a flea market on my Birthday and when I sat in the car going through them, that was in the very back of the bag. What a surprise!

These are little double sided records. I wonder how many of these type of records were made? There very cute. I need to look around and see if I can find any info on these.

Aren't these two adorable?! They're little candle holders. They came in their original box with two unused candles.

I love poodles! I love to collect anything with a poodle on it and this potholder is so soft and sweet.

There's something about this little rubber dog that just seems to make me happy when I look at him. He's just got such a goofy look on his face. And he's pink.

Of course we couldn't have a weekend of flea marketing and not come out with at least one new planter!

This is a beautiful heart that Elizabeth of Creative breathing made for me.

Isn't it cute?! I have it hanging here on my hutch but plan on displaying next to my That Girl Barbie.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend,

Great stuff! I've never seen those little record cards. I love all of the cute dogs and that kitty apron card is the sweetest thing ever! And Lindsey, your "That Girl" heart is very special, indeed.
P.S. Twyla - I already switched my cottage postcard into a red frame, and now have it displayed in my red hutch in our sunroom. I love looking at it!

I know this is a super old post but it was featured at the bottom of today's post and those little dolly girls at the top caught my eye. My mom had one when I was growing up and used it for a quick pin cushion. Most of her pins and needles she kept in her sewing box but there was always a needle or two stuck in this girl, who sat on top of mom's dresser, for a quick stitching job. I haven't thought about those in forever...I'd sure like to find one!
