Aunt Bea


Just a few of the the latest flea market treasures.  My list in hand I ventured in knowing full well there might be more than my few items to find.


Our dreary weather is not great for pictures but I took them anyway.


I am a sucker for tin and this trash can was mine from the minute I laid eyes on it. (Mecky I smiled and thought of you immediately.)


Tiny Tales...I haven't found some of these in a while.


Amsco high chair that matches my pink table perfectly.


Princess face.


Josef at half price.


A mini lucite purse.


Perfectly appointed.


...and the most amazing gingham apron labeled Aunt Bea.  This is the back.  I cannot wait to recreate this pattern.

I am coming to town and we are going thrifting together, I never find great things like these!!! Of course we'd probably get into a big brouhaha because we'd both want the same items, so maybe I'd better stay home :) Thanks for sharing your awesome finds with us. Hugs ~ Mary
