Bouquets


Milling around at the flea the other day.  As the estate sales have been high and dry. Thrift stores have not been any better for that matter.  Not to worry as there is usually a booth or two with a sale at the flea...


A little bit of magic and lots of soft spring colors.


Dollar tins with doilies and bouquets. Could those colors be any more gorgeous.


A felt yard stick keeper.


This one will most certainly be mine to treasure.


Tiny plastic light stars and silver reflectors. Surely a Christmas craft to come.


My favorite way to buy cards...all bagged up so that I can dig through them and be surprised.  This lot did not disappoint.


Something I could not pass even in its condition.  A Mattel Music Maker book?  Part book part music box.  No batteries needed!  


Look at these faces on the back.  Can't tell you if I am scared of them or not.  I can tell you that I am going to be on the look out for all those other titles though...

Oh yes I bet going through a lot of greeting cards is fun I have never purchased any at a flea market, but who knows what will happen in 2012! Hugs, Diane

A felt yardstick cozy! I have never heard of that but I always buy yardsticks (go figure) so this will be on my list to look for. And a poke sack of cards - you know how I love poke sacks. Yay - great scores!!

Lot's of cool finds. I see what you mean about being scared or not! I love the music box book, and the yardstick cozy, because I have never seen anything like them before! But I love all the pretty things, thank you for sharing.
Blessings,

I've never seen a yardstick keeper -- how cute it that?!

Thrifts here are high & dry as well. Patiently waiting for yard sale season to begin. :-)

I was wondering what that long green thing was lying across the table. I'd keep it, too.
And I've never seen a music box book like this before. How cute!
