this past weekend was action packed! i cut my vacation short so i could go to the rose bowl flea market with these lovely ladies, grace and amy. is that bad? i cut my vacation short and drove like a bat out of hell the day before so i could hunt for used treasures.
this time i went to the flea market with a list in hand, trying to stay focused here, something i'm not very good at. i found these feathery friends. they were not on the list, but i needed them.
you know, i'm a country girl at heart living in the burbs.
i wonder what my h.o.a. would say about chickens in my backyard.
my husband had chickens growing up. he knows how to take care of them. he named all of his chickens. i love his chicken stories. he grew up in the country like me but he is not a country boy at heart, not anymore anyways.
this one is my second favorite
i need to frame them. they are taped to cardboard at the moment. i can't wait to show you where i'm going to hang them! hold your horses. it's going to be awhile. pulling a room together out of mostly vintage goody goodness takes some time my friends. i'm starting from scratch.
this one is my favorite. i love color. i think i'm a color junkie.
these were on my list! amy and grace pointed these out to me. thank you girls! i was getting discouraged about finding the big pieces on my list. i might have overlooked these babies. they're great aren't they?
this was not a flea market find, but i found it earlier on my vacay at a vintage store called "junk in the trunk"
you can never have too much vintage fabric.
this still had the original price tag from monkey wards! monkey wards and i go way back. my grandpa lived around the corner from a montgomery wards and we used to walk there. he used to sing me this song on our way. i think it was called "animal crakers in my soup". good memories.
thank you grace and amy for the fun flea times!
