Wow.. this weekend seemed to just fly by. My sis and I spent Saturday at the indoor flea market, and it was great fun:) Today Dan and I celebrated our 31st Anniversary. I have lots of photos to share, but first I'll share a quick makeover project I did with these hat boxes. They had a pretty brown and cream pattern on them, but they didn't really go in my craft room ( and that is defiantly were I need all the storage I can get).. so I altered them with some colorful papers from my scrap bin. When Jan and I are thrift shopping we always say.. "If you don't like it, paint it a color you love, or cover it with pretty paper" solves the problem every time. lol
The Flea Market we went to was in Lincoln at the Lancaster Event Center. (inside of course. Remember it's winter in Nebraska). We were there when the doors opened, and there were alot of people there already.
I have to share some of the things I saw and loved ..but didnt buy. Like this bike....
and this table. *LOVE*
Scrapbooking ... in the begining. You've come a long way baby!
Okay.. what did I get??? This sweet yellow pyrex bowl that's going to look great in my kitchen. yippee!
a number of awesome old jars, and other goodies that make me smile.
I have never seen jars like this one before. ( thank you for the cool jar Canada :)
I had the red record box before, but I got the old blue lunch box Saturday. We thought it was so cute that it has three different kids names from the same family written on over the years. I think it's been used many a day.
I cant even tell you how much I love this. ( yep.. mine now).
..and a little vintage button love also. ( now.. if I can just bring myself to use them)
I have a plan for these.
We had already made one trip to the car to drop things off so we wouldn't have to carry them, but here's Jan waiting with our other goodies while I get the car. To bad her awesome framed mirror wasn't facing this way so you could see it.. it's so cool! That big frame on the side, I picked up for $4. I plan to paint it white to use for a photo prop. The little red table is mine, and the typewriter table is Jan's. ( cant wait to see what color she paints it).
As if the day wasnt already pretty darn good. It got even better with some amazing Mexican food and the world BEST Margaritias! Ahhhh...
Even the drive home was enjoyable. Good tunes and a gorgeous sky to keep me company.
Thanks for letting me share my weekend with you. I hope you had a great one also.
Here's to a creative week ahead!
