Whoa~ Almost missed it

I was so bummed out that I missed the Brimfield Flea Market today ~ that I almost missed "White Wednesday " as well. Wicked Double Tragedy. I didn't really pull anything aside for this so I am using a few random shots. Of course, I love my little demi-lune table that my sister gave me. So cute and already shabby-white when she bestowed it. And looky what I found at my local Flea on Mothers Day ~ I LOOVVEE it!! Its a vintage nursery scale complete with perfect wicker basket. I think it was white once a loooong time ago. But I'm not touching it. I swear people around here have no clue what things should cost. This piece would have been priceless to me. In fact I prefaced asking the vendor for its price by saying "I know its waaay out of my price range today, but" and when she told me the price, I actually said "REALLY??? start the car - start the car" paid, grabbed it and ran as fast as my weak knees could carry me back to my truck. I wish I recorded it somehow. Alas, no one could attest to the fact that as I stowed it safely in the pickup, I looked around to make sure no one was casing my stash. Crazy I know but I couldn't help it...

Okay, trying Brimfield again tomorrow - if anyone else is going - give me a shout out. I would love to meet some of you wonderful girls. Its freezing and raining here today - not good flea weather. I don't care what anyone says - if I ain't comfortable, it ain't happenin' for me. So Thursday it is....I hope. Please swing on by Faded Charm and check out all the other WW posts ~ you'll be glad you did.

  1. Hi Dee, Tomorrow is supposed to be perfect for Brimfield. Dress in layers. Yesterday was cold, then very warm and then cold again. You will see the fields that I couldn't because they were closed. I want to go again but this weeks schedule is crazy. There is a lady there who is selling high end fabric for $20.00 a yard. What a gorgeous selection. Nicole and I are putting on an Antique and Collectible Extravaganza in July so I asked the fabric lady to join us. It is going to be a fun show if everything goes well. Have fun and take lots of photos to share. I didn't take my camera but should have because there was a lot to photograph:)

  9. Beautiful post. I love the urn in the birdcage. Hope you don't mind, but I'm going to borrow that idea with an old bird cage I have in the back yard. What a great find you made with the baby scale. Too fun!
