Last month I visited our nearby outdoor flea market for the last time this season (sniff sniff). The warm weather days always fly by, and next thing you know the outdoor flea is closed. I wanted to share with you some of the loot, as well as recent thrift store finds. It's always fun to show the treasures before I end up transforming some of them...
Here is a gorgeous old platter, Blessed Mother statue and blue floral rimmed pitcher.
I love the monogram on this vintage tablecloth, as well as the crochet-edged sheet:
This sweet little birdcage was only 50 cents:
It came with this bright floral piece attached, which I promptly removed:
The floral piece got a coat of warm white paint:
My favorite find that day was this vintage doll. I didn't love her yellow dress, though...
...so I decided to dye it grey!
I'll be sure to share this pretty grey lady at Michelle's Grey Dey Thursdey:
Now I do believe her attire goes much better with her eyes. :)
She's attached to a curious bottom:
It's from 1960 - of course, you can tell that from the retro fabric on the bottom, huh?
I may transform her into a Santos cage doll (like this project), but we'll have to see...
Here are some recent finds from my local thrift store, too. A paper mache reindeer (I'm not crazy about the garland strung across him, so I'll find a separate use for that later):
Lastly, a metal hardware piece that looked like it came from a sconce or some lighting fixture(?) I love its' curves:
Thanks for letting me share these finds with you. It's like I'm bringing you all along for the thrill of the hunt!
