On the way up to our wonderful retreat last weekend, Lisa and I made a few stops at thrift and antique stores... I was very excited with what I found!!!

I can't wait to lose a little more weight so I can fit into this adorable dress!!!

I believe this used to be a buffet, the legs were cut and now this would look great as a coffee table!

I have been looking for a large ironstone bowl like this one ever since I borrowed one from Joe at the BH Flea Market for my Chicken Panzanella salad!! The price was awesome!

I found this darling cement cherub at Monticello, along with the mirror below...

Then, today, Lisa and I headed out to our local flea market and it did not disappoint...

... Sweet doll playpen...

... Love the floral quilt...

This is the second American Red Cross fabric bag I have, with an adorable vintage fabric!! I wonder what they were used for...?!!

I will be back soon with some cool makeovers I am working on... I would love to have you visit me again...!!

  2. Oh My ~ You hit the Mother Load.... I can't wait for the Flea Market ~ Garage Sale Season to start up around here, hopefully by the end of the month.... Love Everything You Posted~ I Love the cut down Buffet, long pillow on the top for a comfy bench~

  12. you bought all of that last weekend?!? you really do know how to fill your time with all sorts of fabulousness!

  13. Hi Isobel...we share similar tastes. I look at your blog often. Take a look at mine.

  14. My favorite is the Red Cross bag. I've never seen one. So many pretty things.


  15. I had a huge ironstone bowl like that one at the shows with the pitcher. It held the chips for the blog party food, but it sold and went to a new home. They are fabulous when you can find them. I have so many pics to post, just am trying to get caught up from having been gone almost 2 weeks. I will hopefully post today. Maybe one day you'll come to Texas for the big shows or I'll come your way :)

  16. Wow, apparently I'm not the junker I thought I was since I didn't get out there this weekend. I'm reading about everyone else and their fantastic finds! You are so lucky to have Lisa! I have a week day junking buddy, I guess I need to find me a weekend junking buddy.

  17. I can't believe how lovely your finds are! Every one of them could find a place in my home, so easily... And would enhance it - goes without saying!

    Thanks so much for your kind words about my mum. I really appreciate everyone's care and prayers.
