Hi everyone, it's a beautiful morning here in Pennsylvania, the sun is out and it just says "Spring"! Sunday was nice too but a little chilly the morning I went, I've been going to this one fleamarket for about 20 years and always manage to find something. I love driving there too because it's all country along the way and in the summer there is usually yard sales along the road which I try to stop at as many as I can and not spend all my cash before I even get to the fleamarket.LOL
The fleamarket was in full swing by the time I got there but not as many outside that I thought there would be, they have a large building full of people selling fruit and vegetables, books, baked goods and my favorite the man that sells pepperoni and pizzas! I always buy a pizza for my youngest he had been going to the fleamarket with me since he was 3 or 4 (now 28) and he loves those pizzas. I found a parking space real quick and proceded to the first table it always seems like I'm contending with other women when I get out of my car, everyone's walking real fast to get there and get the neat "stuff"first.LOL Well, they got there first this time because I'm limping from a knee injury, which I have to get scoped on the 25th, my first find was something I've always wanted a reproduction candle mold for only $2.00 so neat and it is now on my mantel.
I found a table that had old photos, I love looking thur these long lost relatives especially the baby ones. I came across this picture of three ladies and a man, the women all have bonnets on and the man a hat and they look like they are sitting and leaning against a split rail fence. On the back of the picture it says " Lottie Wise & friends " I was disappointed that there wasn't a date, why wouldn't Lottie put the date? I paid $3.00 for it. I picked up a blue ball jar for $3.00 also, I'm starting to collect them again. I think the neatest thing I found though was this glass door hanging cupboard, I stopped and looked at it thinking I could paint it black and distess it but thought "Oh, he probably wants at least $15.00 for it" so I started to walk away when I stopped and thought "No..... it will be gone when I come back" I asked him how much and when he said $5.00 I snatched it up!!!LoL I will be painting it black and I think I'll put the photo inside on the shelf.
All in all it was a good day, I thought I'd treat myself since the next day was my birthday! We celebrated Saturday by going to the "Habachi" a Japanese resturant in McMurry. All my kids wore there except Chris, he had to work and my "little girls" . Today is my DH' s birthday and I have already made him a cake this morning.
What a great weekend it was, weather was good, food was good!!! Oh, and also a special gift from my bestest friend, Lori, she sent me a book that I have wanted for a long time "Of Hearth and Home" by Judy Condon, it is just full of prim pictures. You can only buy this book from her and I know she sells them on ebay and you can reach her on her website email@example.com I hope she doesn't mind this plug about her book LoL but I think it is just wonderful and plan on getting her 1st and 2nd one too!
Have a great day and I hope it is sunny where you are too.
A Pleasant Home
