Another fun Saturday of flea markets has come and gone.
My greatest find of the day were three bags filled with vintage ric rac, 59 different colors. My favorite is the big aqua one!



I found an old scrapbook for a baby girl and my, is it ever full. The woman who filled this book would have been a wonderful scrapbooker! She saved pieces of wrapping paper, tissue paper, ribbon, and napkins! I am still working on taking out all the cards.



Here's one of the cards from the book.





As much as I love vintage and retro images I also love victorian images too. I love the romantic feel this victorian tin has.


I don't know if there is anything I can do to clean the ruffles on this figurine. I still thought she was too pretty to leave!




Along with the bags of ric rac, I found a bag full of vintage patterns. Here is a few of the patterns that was in the bag.



I found another Rand McNally Elf book to add to my collection and a few more valentines. I love the little dutch Valentine!


I saw this coin purse at Marshall's and couldn't resist it! I love the doggies and it's vintage feel!


Wishing you a joyous day, Lindsey and Twyla

Hi Twyla, My husband let me stop for 15 MINUTES at Ohio's largest antique mall on our drive home from Michigan. My head was spinning from scanning so fast. I came away with a baby planter! Now who could have inspired this new collection I wonder! Have a great week ahead! Elizabeth

Wow! Ric rac heaven! Y'all did good!

Love those pink animals on the baby card! How sweet!

Be thankful for your flea market because the thrift stores have been pitiful lately!

Have a good Monday! ♥

What a great haul of ric rac!

I can't wait for the boot sale season to start in the UK, that's when I find my best things.

Great stuff- as always, leaving me feeling SO envious - because we seem to love SO many of the very same things!

WOW... y'all are in Ric~Rac Heaven now! Love it and know you do, too... Such a sweet Elf book to add to your collection...

That Baby book is just precious... but it made me so sad thinking that someone put so much work into it, and then to have it end up in a Flea Market... I'm glad you found it and will give it a good home... Hope your new week is wonderful, and Twyla, I hope you're having better days, my friend...
God bless...
