flea finds and happy me!

Well, Saturday morning in Maine at my parent's place started out as my Dad getting ready for the flea market..minutes later he had 6 of us tagging along behind him! I found some great things that I'd like to share:
2 vintage postcards for $1.00 frame cost me $3.00  Postcard on left is of Oak Bluffs, Martha's Vineyard Postcard on right is of Maine ~Our 2 favorite places;)
Next great find was this old oar for $5.00  that I stained and then mod podged my anniversary date onto it.  Can't wait to share what I do with it!  Stay tuned!

Then, I got these 2 small metal white tables, both for $5.00!

And I picked up this pot for $0.50! 
So, it was a fantastic trip of Flea Marketing!  Don't forget to check back and see how I display the oar! 


  1. What absolutely amazing finds... I am in LOVE with that oar!! ♥

  2. Oh! How could I forget! I also found a very old children's book titled, "Doroth Dainty on the Sea Shore" I'll blog about my books soon...;)Alyssa

  7. Thanks! My husband takes the credit for the gardens;) He studied under his father who studied in Stockbridge as an arborist. They both can do amazing work, unlike me who can barely keep my herbs alive!lol;)
