Flea Market Finds

…Another Man’s Treasure…

 

Yesterday, I was able to do one of my favorite activities on earth…I got to scour the local flea market! I love to walk the rows and rows of junk and treasure! There is always some junk…but there’s always some treasure…at least treasure to me.

I think I scored! I found some great home decor items and a seasonal item too.

My first find was this pair of blue wooden ducks. I sort of have a thing for ducks, geese and swans. You can tell that by looking at my DIY wooden swan sign that I made hereFlea marketI love their worn, rustic look! There’s a story there…

My husband asked if I was going to keep them that way. YES! They have such character. No way would I change that! I love the red eyes!

Flea MarketFor $1.00, I purchased this set of 4 leaf napkin rings. They are an antique bronze and so cute! Great detail and an awesome price. I can use these through Thanksgiving. One problem…we are a family of 6, so I have six chairs at my table. I have decided to find two or three coordinating napkin rings that I can mix in with these. I can do three and three. I’ll make it work.

Flea MarketMy favorite purchase of the day is this gorgeous print. For $20, this beauty was mine. Originally, I walked away from this, but I knew I had to go back! I’m so glad I did, because I love it!

I love the bright, vibrant colors and the tranquility of the picture. It seems to speak to me. It makes me smile just to look at it.

    Of course you bought that print…..it has a bird in it!! I see a theme here, Leslie.;-) For your napkin rings – I would use the 4 and put 2 different ones at the host and hostess’ place (that’s my way of sneaking in different pieces without anyone really noticing).
