summer fun....on a holiday weekend!

Up at 4:30 this morning....by the light of the silvery moon...(insert... "what the heck are you taking pictures of NOW????",.... moon picture here)



and before long...the blazing sun burned a hole on the horizon so it could peek in on what kind of day we would have...
(these pictures do NOT do the sunrise justice..it was just a glimpse into the new day starting!!! and the car was moving..."Uhhhh, i CANNOT wait for you to take a BETTER picture...there are CARS behind us waiting to go!!" gosh...impatience!!!



Here is my "ironman..." He took two trips back to the car for us...so we didn't have to carry everything...
SMOOOOOOOOCHES TO HIM!!!



Day started with a big sign saying the fleamarket opened at SEVEN!!!! for years and years as long as I can remember....it has opened at 6!!! UGH...so we waited...
PATIENTLY...see i COULD have gotten a better picture...!!!
Well onto my list of goodies i'm looking for....that basically didn't find...but did find so much other stuff...that I'M A HAPPY CAMPER...

found: these rusty spikes that will look wonderful...



when i pound them into this sweet piece of driftwood for a jewelry holder...
I'm going to paint BEACH with an arrow on it...for our BEACHY bedroom....



I also got some antique fishneting...for a valance for the same said beachy place!!!
...no pictures because it was a bit FISHY..LOL...but after a good wash, wash, wash, wash, wash, and rinse..it is smellin great!!! (and drying on the back porch...)

and these GREAT OARS for a corner (CORRECTION...THEY WILL BE ON MY SIDE OF THE BED...AS THEY WOULD MOST CERTAINLY FALL IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT ON "HIS" SIDE..RIGHT ON TOP OF HIM...LOL) in our beachy retreat!!!



Lady had a shoebox full of vintage buttons...glass ones too!!! all for one price...
Over 100 cards...(like i REALLY needed more buttons...) but she wouldn't take less...for just a couple...it was ALL or none...so ALL it is...



One of my favorite sweet ladies was there...I always worry when one of the older ladies don't show up for a sale...after a long winter...but she was THERE IN HER GLORY!!! she has boxes of junque jewelry...quarter a piece...but you ALWAYS end up with more than you pay for..."oh i'm just gonna toss this old thing in" then she blushes when you tip her...lol





Some sweet sheer flocked flower fabric and about 4 yards of vintage never been used strawberry shortcake fabric!



Some glass door knobs for bases for halloween dolls...



Picked this weathered chair up...for Fifty cents..for the garden



...got these sweet pickets..to reconstruct a little fence in the middle of the new gardens for accents...got enough to do 4 sections...



and here is a fence section to use to break up the "newness" of the garage wall....



I met a lovely lady (CLICK ON "BEAUTIFUL BLOG") who has a BEAUTIFUL BLOG...WOWSERS...I've bought many sweet things from her for a bit now!!! I look back on her pictures from prior years and see things i now own!!!! and a funny thing is her name is Jeanine Burkhardt!!! how close to my last name!!! And now i find her BLOG!!!!

Babies got spoiled...from afar....Auntie Dawn sent them some very special gifties...

I saw the same moon, wasn't it a beauty!!!
Looks like another successful flea-day!!!

Dawn said...

OMG you found some amazing stuff at the flea market, love it all, the rusty nails the picket fences, the buttons and the bling.
Now here's a thing, when I was single I had a beach bedroom, with netting on the wall, a fisherman lantern for a light and lots of starfish etc. caught in the net, so we do have the same taste.

WONDERFUL, WONDERFUL PICS, HUGS TO THE KIDS XXX
