My Saturday morning was productive (though counterproductive toward my resolution to save money). I found so many treasures at the final flea market of the season in my neighborhood. Our local flea isn’t huge but with over 40 vendors and shops, it’s not hard to find a few things that are to your taste.
The pennant flags and marquee numbers were a steal and have been on my wishlist for awhile. The numbers are 8-15 (our anniversary) and have found a temporary home on top of the hutch in our bedroom. The pennants will most likely end up downstairs in the living room or dining room. The adorable paint-by-numbers of a deer couple was also super cheap and goes really well with the big one we have in our dining room. I might actually hang it in the bedroom or leave it on my sewing table.
The apple picking bag was a splurge. It was too cool to pass up though. I used my negotiating skills (is use the word ‘skills’ loosely, I’m a terrible negotiater) to bring them down by nearly half. I have no idea when I’m going to do with it. It’s hanging on a hook in our bedroom right now. It needs to be cleaned up a little since it looks like it’s been hanging in a garden shed for 40 years. Jared says he will use it to harvest the beans next year.
There were tons of things I loved that I couldn’t bring home. Here are some of my favorites.
Note the adorable heart shaped leaf that snuck into the photo above.
The rest of the day was spend relaxing and quilting. Jared made a detour while running errands and brought some pumpkin donuts home. I’ll be having another one with a cup of tea shortly. Nom.
I hope you are having a lovely October weekend. Enjoy the beautiful weather while it’s still here! We will probably be up to our knees in snow in a month.
