Here is the lady that was making flower bouquets for anyone who wanted to buy one, at Horton's on Saturday. We talked about roses not having the fragrance they used too have. These were your everyday flowers from the garden, so pretty put together . This sweet lady is the mother of Karen Horton.
I decided to post a few more pictures of the French flea. I'll post a few more tomorrow. Maybe show what all I bought there also. Look at this wreath, so cute and simple. With pink banner and ribbon.
I like this oval mirror, with the urn turned on it's side with a piece of lace and some greenery. I thought this could look nice on a porch table or mantle.
I loved the clock face, may have to go back to see if it's still there.:):) We have to get our little cases out to display vignettes. Some times you can pick up some nice decorating ideas by just walking through flea markets and stores. You can glean some cute ideas to take home and try . We need to use what we have . Dig it our of storage, closets and cabinets. Use it !! My mom used to put all her good stuff back for later...what later? I told her daddy's"new wife "will use it, if mom should pass away. Mom started using her better dishes after that. :):)
Oh, I love the photos and I love getting ideas from everywhere. You must post the things you found and brought home. Love what you told your mom. I use my things over and over and over again. I use them until I either wear them out of I am so sick of seeing them that I must simply pass them on to others. I love trading junk for junk with friends, too. You sure can't take it with you when you go.ReplyDelete
"For later..."" Ahhhh yes, what a silly concept. So glad you got Mom to start using stuff, NOW!!!!!!!!!ReplyDelete
You find the most beautiful things to show us. My grandmother used to save her things "for good." When she died, I used her things. Yes, I did. And I enjoyed them until they wore out. Life is short. Enjoy!ReplyDelete
such pretty things there! my goodness!ReplyDelete
Does Horton's have this French flea market on the same week-end each year? I'd love to make a trip just for that, but had a problem with the date this year, and that will probably be the story next year as well. I think the added use of pesticides has affected the aromas we remember from earlier years. xo NellieReplyDelete
I went to this flea and drove down frm Chicago with a friend. We loved it. I remember talking with the flower lady too. What a sweetie she was. It was a beautiful day on Friday when we came down. Not a bad drive at all.
These are beautiful pics. I wish we had a place like that around here. Hugs, xoReplyDelete
I would love a place like this.ReplyDelete
Hi Susie, I always enjoy your post when I stop for a visit. I just wish I lived closer to some of the places that you talk about. Have a wonderful day. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.ReplyDelete
Looks like a fun place and I love the story about your mom, xo LauraReplyDelete
I've heard that is a great flea market, lucky you! The suitcase full of goodies is so cute! I could come home with a carload of stuff if I shopped there!ReplyDelete
