Jeans and a sweater? I'm totally jealous!

You really hit the jackpot today, friend. Wish I could find such cute treasures here.

Oh dang! I meant to mark my calendar to go to that today...I've never been but have a few friends that go every weekend! I'll have to make it next month for the last weekend of the season! Glad you found some fun treasures. :)


I'm so glad you got to meet Paula. We will all have some much fun on Monday. And...I am so jealous of your wise owl cards. I've been a bit obsessed with owls lately. Maybe we can arrange a trade--a scrap of Nancy Drew fabric for an owl card????


I love enamel ware, too! I've got tons in my kitchen. Oh and some in my dining room. Wait...some packed in the attic, too. I think there is a box with some in the basement. Um...I have serious problem, don't I?


What do you do with the seam binding...anything other than um binding seams? I am SO NOT a seamstress! I know, I have three machines and I'm welcome to come for lessons. How much fun would that be? You would be so disgusted with me after about 20 minutes. I tend to get very frustrated if I can't do something well, right from the start. (Admitting the problem is the first step, right?)

Loved your treasures. Can't wait to see what Mom gets for Christmas!


I am loving the vintage treasures. Thanks a lot for asking about the fabric flower..and I am really sorry for the delayed husabnd wanted to join in and help so I had to postpone it for two days. But I am surely going to try it and will send you a picture.

This sounds like the festival we have here in October - The 1890's festival or affectionately called the McIntosh festival. We wait and squirrel away money all year to go! The craft vendors, quilters, Gospel singers, oh I can smell the butterfly potatoes and funnel cakes now! LOL!!!

I'm glad you had fun - and what cute finds you made!!


Love the vintage playing cards!

What will you put in that bowl?

I've been looking at charm bracelets on eBay lately, thanks to you! I hope you are honored by that not freaked out, "Oooh that weird girl from Iowa is stalking me." Cuz I won't buy one if you don't approve :-)

And I'm assuming that Paris is the name of the street, not Paris street market...
