A Marriage!

Hubby and I went to a fabulous flea market about three hours from our home. It is in Bloomington, IL and it called, Third Sunday Market!

We have been before and I even did a post on it the first time we went. You can see that HERE.

This time, as our house fills up, and we don't want to be called the H word...Hoarder's. We kept our purchases to a minimum. I know it doesn't sound like fun, but it is fun to see all the 'stuff' and be very selective on what we bought.

Case in point... 


Burlap Roses

Just a quick little diversion from a harder project that I was working on! 


I Won a Silhouette!

This SPRING banner is the FIRST completed project with my new Silhouette Portrait cutting machine.


Ball & Claw

Lately I have been infatuated with
 Annie Sloan's Old White and French Linen Chalk Paint.

I adore the combination of these two colors...

So old world, so classic, so today!


Clover Luck

I purchased these precious German Bibles at a local thrift store.

What struck me about them was not that I too have a German heritage, but they matched, however the smaller (female) version was inscribed with the name,

Frieda U. Siemers, 1906


Roses are magnetic!

I adore the look of silver and have made many displays using my collection of silver pieces.

This is surely not a new idea, but I wanted something to put in my booth for sale that was fun and functional.

I already had some silver trays but needed to come up with some kind of magnets that were...pretty!


Tin Ceiling Shelf

 If you have a good memory and have been following me for a while, you might remember when we returned from a Kansas visit. (My son lives in Kansas)

We always go antiquing along the way and picked a whole SUV load of goodies that we brought back.

Can you spy what is on top of the pile? Above all the cool pillar parts that is.
