Flea Market Finds..........

Well girls, you'll all be happy to hear that I was able to get out of my fishing expedition :) ....shhhhh, don't tell Mr. P I was thrilled when he asked if I'd mind postponing our outing???? awwwwww, honey I was so excited but it's o.k. ~ we'll do it another time. He forgot that he was supposed to help Gene his friend at the New Bedford Rod-n-Gun Club clean up the area where they shoot their re-curve bows. Gene is a nice older fella, he took a liking to Mr. P and got him interested in re-curve bows, so it was really o.k. with me that he went....

When he got back this afternoon he still felt so badly that we weren't able to go so he suggested hitting the flea I know he had to be feeling bad because he really doesn't like to "trash collect" as he calls it ~ LOL!

So off we went, oooohhhhh I just love looking for old treasures....he says that I must have been Fred Sanford from Sanford and Son in a past life!

Just take a look at what I found....all for under $10.00!!!!

These tiny little critters....

She was sitting right next to the little critters (no bigger than my thumb) the gentleman running the little stand threw her in "to watch over you sweetie, everyone needs a guardian angel" so cute ~ I love her!

Cute little tobacco tin, I have a bigger one same brand up on my shelf :)

This sweet little "pie bird" he didn't even know what she was, the stamp on the bottom says 1937 ~ so cute...I have a few other "pie birds" she'll go right up next to them!

These darling little shoes, when I saw them I just had to have them...the white one is "Billy's" & the little pink one is "Nikky's" ~ both are stamped 1941!! I'll find a place for them, maybe on the mantle next to their baby pictures :)

My little cuties, added them to the other little ones I had, now they'll all watch over my kitchen!

Tomorrow, pictures from Hedo Point Okinawa....

Have a great Sunday night!

Until tomorrow Be Safe & God Bless!

And lovin the little guardian angel. Yes. that's a must have. and such Sweet Baby Shoes.... Sounds like you got your share of cheap thrills yesterday. That's what I call my ventures where I come home with what may look like a bag of what-nots that have little value, but they just give me HAPPINESS!!!
