Things left behind........

We didn't make it to the flea market this weekend, thought I might go today but once again, the weather was rainy and I couldn't make myself get out there in the wet and mud! So, instead, I will show you some of the great stuff we found last time that didn't make it home with us.  Who says you can't find cool stuff at the flea!


We loved all of these things, but, you never know what you will come accross.  The good, the bad, and the ugly! 
These really scared me!


Are you scared, or is it just us?
Untill next time,

Are you sitting down........

Here I am sitting in my favorite chair all comfy and cozy, trying to figure out what to write about and this may be silly, but I love this chair!  It's big and it's red with round, fat, arms, a high back, 4 little feet and oh soooo comfortable!  Considering, he's (I think the chair is a he!) the ripe old age of 16, he looks pretty darn good! Now, I'm  not saying he doesn't have any flaws, I know I do, but, that's another story for another time!
There's a little rip on his left shoulder that gets covered with a seasonal throw, and one of his little feet (very little feet for such a big chair,)  falls off whenever you move him.  But, other then that, perfection!!!  I adopted him from St. Vincent's, a thrift store in Green Bay, Wisconsin. I was wandering around the store one day and there he was, in a long row of sad, lonely furniture all putting their best faces(seats?) forward, hoping to find a warm, loving home. What's a girl to do?  He was calling out to me and I had to save him!  Of course, he had no price so I had to hunt down someone to find out what to do.  A little man came over and looked at him and looked back at me and said  "I guess you can have it for $10.00."  Sounds good right?  No, not good!  I had a problem, last stop of the day and I only had $7.00 left.  All I could do was ask and hope and yes, done deal!  We've lived happily together ever since!
I guess, now, all that's left is to show you a picture of my favorite chair!

I hear birds, and see buds on the trees, but the greatest factor towards my
Spring Fever is three sunny days in a row!

I can hardly wait for spring. Maybe it's all this doom and gloom we are hearing in the news, or just the gloom I see outdoors.  It's nice to just forget all that and enjoy life! I am so looking forward to warm sunny days!

At the store, everyone has been busy trying to erase any reminders of winter, and the store is becoming dressed in its Spring Best!   Here is a preview...

The store is PACKED and more items are coming in daily.....Please come and see us soon.

Happy Spring!

To Flea or not to Flea....

What, not Flea! Not possible!!!
The Nashville flea market was this past weekend.  We managed to get there on Sunday,  a couple of hours before everyone packed up to leave.  Even though a lot of the venders had already left,
we still found two van loads of fab finds to bring home to the shop.  Here are some pictures of what we happily snapped up!


 Till next time.......
