Tube Socks & Socket Wrenches?
My husband took me to a flea market yesterday, that I was sure would be a big dud, full of boxes of tube socks and cheap tools.Yeah....... I was wrong. He was right. I can admit it.

Blue and Pink seemed to be the theme of the day's finds, including the pretty vintage ticking in the background.



Hope you are all having pleasant weekends too!
Thanks for stopping by!! :)

Now Becca.... I'm sorry to have to tell you this~
But you're dreaming. Those really ARE tube socks and rusty old tools. Nothing you want, trust me.

Just pack it all up and ship it to me, you don't want that junk cluttering up your beautiful home!!


HEEEEEEEE! WOW. What gorgeous goodies. And the ticking fabric! Beautiful!!

Becca, I love your vintage finds. What kind of cup is that (4th picture down). Is it for a moustache? I've never seen one quite like it --- very interesting. Also, I love your oval plate with the old-fashioned ladies in the center scene. I recently bought a plate much like it --- I need to find mine and see if we have matching plates. My is round, but they might be from the same set.

Enjoy a happy day! I hope you have some sunshine in it!

Love
