~Flea Market Finds~

A couple weekends ago I carved out some Maisy time.
I happen to live near an amazing flea market.
It runs the first weekend of every month.
It's so much fun.
I packed up my backpack with a credit card, check book and cash.
A girl must have a hands free experience.
I don't like to carry stuff around.
If I had to carry stuff around I wouldn't be able to touch EVERYTHING!!!!
(and I do mean everything)
I'm a tactile girl....what can I say??
If the items are too big to fit in my backpack I ask if I can pick up my things as I am heading out.

This is what I bought:

A chalboard in an old frame.
Looks great in my dining room.

This darling little blue jar.
There is some old story that came with it.
Not sure if I believe it.
Oh well.....I just LOVE this color blue!

This is my favorite purchase from that day.
It's a shelf made out of old doors.

OH NO.................
I just remembered I bought something else. Well, I'm tooooo lazy to get up, take pics, edit pics, load pics and write about it now.
It's just been one of those days.

Happy Wednesday!!
(not today..tomorrow...I'm sure you figured that out by now...phew)

You have some amazing finds. The shelf reminds me of something they would make at the end of that show "Decorating Sense" on HGTV. Very lovely.

Hi Amy,

Is it the Kane County Flea market? When I lived in Chicago I went there every month.

Love the shelf.
