my cottage snappies

Have you ever wanted to be featured in a decor magazine? I would love it! Ahh, the lights, the cameras, the fame-lol! So, let's pretend this is my 5 seconds of fame and it's my photo shoot for Flea Market Finds, Cottage Living... ;) 
I made this sign by painting over an old sign. I printed off the letters, mod poged them on and painted over the whole thing with a water/paint mix for a vintage look.

Most of the items you see are from the.... Flea Market-You guessed it!
Flea Market china and plates

More flea market finds

My rabbit/bunny collection for Spring and Easter

Stack sea treasures this way and that

Bags and a hat
