Flea Market Finds......

 I was really good, and didn't buy an awful lot. It was hard, but my problem is always deciding what to buy as I want it all!

  I have a collection of salt and pepper shakers. Some from my mom, some the kids gave me, and some I've picked up from flea markets and estate sales.

 I saw this one, and I just had to have it. It's made like an old wood burning stove with the kettles on top. The kettles are the salt and pepper shakers. I paid $3.00 for this.
 The next picture is a shelf I have most of my collection displayed on in my dining area. These aren't all, but these are my favorites. I also have a collection that I put out at Christmas.
  The tall shakers in the top middle section, and the 2 pair on the left top corner all belonged to my mom. They are very old. The little cut glass pair with the red tops were some my dad gave her when they got married.

  I don't know what to call my next little find except to say it's an organizer. It is very heavy, and I will use it in my sewing room to store things like extra scissors, notepads, etc.  It was $4.00.


  We have had some beautiful weather here the last few days. My grands came today, and we had a picnic down by the riverfront downtown. It was very windy, but very comfortable. The kids really enjoyed playing in the park. 

  I have a giveaway coming soon! As soon as I can get everything together to take a picture. I think you will like it!
