Flea Market Sunday

Happy Tuesday my friends!!! I have been a little out of touch the last few days due to my ongoing computer problems. You'll be happy to know that I am over the screaming and have moved on to acceptance. After losing hours of my life to phone conversations with the tech people yesterday, it was determined that there is no fixing my computer, and I will have to send it in for repairs...you know what that means...yep...the dreaded relying on the hub's computer for blog time. Yikes! Does it get anymore painful? I mean, I'm actually going to have time to do the laundry! What fun is that?!

So, I do apologize in advance if I don't get to visit your wonderful blog's as often as I'd like to for awhile.





At any rate, Sunday was a much needed break from reality for me. My partner in crime, (actually that's what she calls me..I'm basically the "enabler," because she does most of the buying), Kasey and I headed up to Elkhorn, WI for a fun-filled day of flea marketing!











I"m the one on the left. Not the best picture, I know, but that's what you get when I get up at 4:30 am to go shopping...and boy did we...










I wish I had more pictures to share with you, but time on the hubby's computer is limited, so I'm going to have to cut this short. I didn't really buy anything major anyway, just a bunch of little things. But I had a wonderful time with a great friend! Below is a picture of the old scale I bought...I find myself drawn to these old scales lately . I like the juxtaposition they add to my mercury glass collection (this collection is displayed on top of a large cabinet that holds my vintage dishes in the dining room)...












Ciao for now...I hope everyone is off to a good start this week! Oh, and I wanted to clarify about the poem from my last post...that was me being funny, not me being creative. I do, of course, appreciate all of your kind words about my "lovely" poem, but it was all just a joke (I'm not nearly nutty enough to write a real poem about a bed)...just wanted to clarify:)





P.S. Thank you Judy over at Tapestries of Nature for letting me take the picture of that adorable "shop" suitcase in the 2nd photo!

what fun you girls had - I hit up the flea near us with a good friend too....Luckily I forgot the camera, otherwise, I would have had a similar picture on my site! :)

Happy Tuesday - bummer about computer problems - makes it real how dependent on technology we are, huh!?

Hi Tracey, you look adorable in the picture! I love flea markets, and I know what you mean about "computer" time... We have a laptop but I don't like using it, I want the BIG computer! I love your vignette with the scales and mercury glass! Julie Marie

What a fun day. I didn't know that Kasey was your friend. I love Kasey... Great picture of the two of you, even if you both hate it.

Hi Tracey,
What a beautiful girl you are. 4:30!!! No wonder you get the goods, like that cool bed. I LOVE that vignette of the top of your cabinet. The rusty scales and the lovey mercury glass are so cool together.
I want to thank you for the sweet message you left for me. It made me feel great.
Hugs,
June
Tell Kasey that I think her ugly twin that she never talks to anymore is a doll!

TRACY, NOT A PROBLEM, GLAD TO BE OF HELP. THAT SUITCASE IS ACTUALLY THE BRAIN CHILD OF MY FRIEND JANICE K. WHO WAS WITH ME AT KANE. (SHE'S A CLEVER GIRL!) IT WAS GREAT SEEING YOU AND KASEY AT ELKHORN. WE COULD TELL YOU WERE HAVING A LOT OF FUN DESPITE THE HEAT. BY THE END OF THE DAY, I SORT OF FELT LIKE I HAD JUMPED IN A LAKE WITH MY CLOTHES ON! NOT A GOOD FEELING BEING ALL DAMP AND WEIGHTED DOWN. BUT IT WAS GOOD AND WORTH IT. CHEERS!

Tracey, you are adorable! It's good to put a face with the blog! I'm glad you had fun with Kasey. Hmmm, Kasey and Tracey, you were meant to be friends! Have a great night, and good luck with the computer problems!

The Little Red Shop said...

"Ooooh!!!" That's exactly what I said when I saw the collection on top of your cabinet.

Love it!

It sounds like you had fun! :)

I'm soooooooooooooooo sorry about your computer. We can cry together, LOL!

Well, for what it's worth, I always get annoyed with Glamour Girls at flea markets. Thankfully, I don't usually see many....but they just never look like the real deal to me. They look like impostors! You girls both look like lovely gals who enjoy an early-morning flea too much to give a dang about looking perfect.

♥Aubrey said...

Old scaless...you read my mind. I've just found one after searching high and low for the perfect black # :)- Your candle holders look identical to the ones i've placed in my daughters room. Love them ♥ Thanks for stopping by my blog, please don't be a stranger...as i won't.

You guys look too cute! Must have had a blast - what could be better than junking/antiqueing with a friend? Love your mercury glass collection - I also just bought a kitchen scale recently!

AshleyR said...

Hey darlin'!

Looks like you girlies had too much fun. You two need to hop in the car and come to the Country Living Fair! I'll be there on Sat. Would love to see you again. I love your mercury glass collection and the scales... very cute!

Ok...you must be just being modest, because I think you & Kasey look great:) Love all that mercury glass!

I am so happy you had a good time. I think I am planning on attending in September...have to hit you up for a few good pointers.
Gotta run...kids out of their minds with exhaustion.
