A Trip to the Flea Market

When I told my husband that I wanted to go to the flea market I think he thought I had gone nuts. "You said, 'All they have is the same old junk,'" was his exact remark. "Yeah," I thought, "but I see that same old junk in a whole new light now that I have stolen some ideas from some GREAT blogs!" Anyway, here are some pics of what I found and how they turned out. Some are still a work in progress, but I was too excited not to show them!

bird cage $6, mail holder $1, palm tree picture frame $1, lamp $2, plates set of 3 $2

I got this for $1, but I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it yet....If you have any suggestions of what to put in it, I'd love some input. It's not very tall only maybe 12 in.
Thanks for sharing my first blogging experience with me, hopefully I'll be able to add more later!


  1. I love the way you converted the palm tree frame and I can't wait to see what you do with the plates.

  2. You husband gives me a hard time about all of my thrifty purchases too. I'll show him something and he asks where I'm going to put it. I tell him "I don't know yet." He teases me and wants to know which room is the I don't know yet room. ha ha

    You got some great stuff! Isn't it so much fun? Like a treasure hunt. :o)
