Tuesdays Treasures aka A Trip to the Jamestown Flea Market

Mr. Fix-It, my daughter Jess and I went to the Jamestown Flea Market Sunday.  It was a beautiful day to stroll around and peruse all the vendors.  I bought a few things.  It wasn't a real good day for finding lots of good deals.    
I found a wreath.  It is cream, white and green.  It matches my bedroom really well but I haven't decided what or where I will use it. I may take it apart and use it in several different places.  
This picture shows the color better.
I also found a set of gingerbread brackets with spindles.  I have ALL sorts of ideas for these.  Of course they will probably end up white.
I didn't realize what a deal I got on these till I got home and looked them up on the internet.  Something similar sells new for $53.00 each.  I didn't pay that much for my pair.
And my FAVORITE find was this...
Isn't it just ADORABLE!!
I looks like my Maggie Mae.
My baby girl.
It is little bitty like she is.
Yeah, I know she needs to go to the groomers.  But she is so cute!
I had a good time and love shopping for treasures.

Can I share one more thing?  

My momma has always taught me to "make do" with what I have. 
I wanted a flower arrangement for my "new" kitchen so I went for a walk.  
This is what I cane up with.



Thanks so much for visiting.  
Let me know what you think!
