Flea Market Finds. . .



We had the most beautiful weekend here. Upper 70's and no humidity!! I spent all day Friday blissfully walking around the flea market finding treasures. Right off the bat I found 2 identical (although Jared had to point out that one was about 2" longer than the other) painted church pews that will be PERFECT on our new front porch on either side of the front door. I'm so excited (but of course forgot to take a picture). Here are some more great finds. . .

Still collecting things for Silver Bella (and another event or two I have up my sleeve)!!


Found a great Yo-Yo quilt and have been cutting the yo-yo's out and adding vintage buttons. . .

And finally a pile of fabric remnants for art quilts and other projects (I'm bundling them together in lots). . .

Also, check out Ali's blog today for my Tuesday Tutorial and information on a limited edition kit I just put up for sale at the site.


And. . .thanks to Mandi Johnson for my new blog look! I love it and I hope you do too! We are still working on side bar stuff, but you will see a link to her blog soon (she can give you a face lift too)!!

Happy Tuesday!
Pin It!

Love the new look, Jenni! Hope all is well. It sounds like things are coming together for the new house- How exciting!! Take care, think about coming out with Jared next month and we can hit Brimfield. I think there is a September weekend. Let me know if you are interested!

Jenni, Thanks for your cleverness! I have an old yoyo quilt my Mom made years and years ago. Most is ok but some falling apart. Thanks to you I will keep the goodies and do what you did. I have no imagination of my own!
I love the new look.
