Not what I was looking for...

Every weekend, rain or shine I head out to the Flea Market. I'm usually just there to pick up vintage frames, mirrors or windows. As usual I come across things I just can't pass up. This weekend I had zero luck with frames, but here are a few things I did find.
Some will go into my Vintage Shop, some given a face-lift and some I'll keep :)

These vintage lamps are going to look incredible once they've been upcycled.
My favorite find, this beautiful vintage mustard seed necklace. My 98 year old Grandmother wore one similar for as long as I can remember, now I think of her each time I wear it♥
Our puppy is getting bigger by the day. He is the sweetest little man with the best personality. He's the reason my alarm clock no longer wakes me up. He and I spend every morning{and by morning I mean 3 & 4 a.m.}going through our/his routine: 2 or 3 trips outside to go potty, eating breakfast and dragging out each and every toy~ plus a shoe someone forgot to pick up.
Although I love starting the day with him, I'm looking forward to the day he sleeps in til at least 5:30 a.m.!

I remember those days with my puppy. Although, she let me sleep in til 6-7 most days! Now, when I wake up, I let her out of her kennel and she jumps into bed with me and I'll sleep another hour or two. It gets better!!

What AWESOME finds! You sound like me...I go to the flea market every weekend I can, and to every thrift store in the area whenever possible...! The necklace is beautiful, but even better is the memory it evokes for you.

Nothing can ever beat the thrill of a good vintage find!

please stop by my new blog sometime if you wish!

Hi Kristen,

Oh, your puppy is so cute! Wish there was a flea market I could go to every weekend!

Nice finds, especially the necklace.
And you just talked me out of getting a puppy!

Kristen said...

Thanks...the necklace is my favorite too!
Jessicajane~ I made the mistake of not using the kennel like I should, I give in to his crying so now he sleeps in a little dog bed in my room{which makes it easier for him to wander around the room & wake me up}. I'm glad to know it gets better~ I look forward to the days of sleeping in :)
