Boopsie Daisy....

I've wanted a Boopsie Daisy doll ever since discovering the amazing Shop on Etsy a few years ago. So, imagine my surprise when I found not one but two of her dolls at a local flea market.

One of the dolls looked like it had been slightly damaged & was missing part of the hair decoration....

Since her theme was sewing I decided to add vintage buttons.....

Their new home...... I can't help but smile everytime I pass by them :)

If you ever need a mood boost just spend some time looking through her Flickr, it's like visiting an overflowing color filled quirky Candyland~ you have to see it to believe it.

New Print♥

Last week I bought this Ferris Wheel Print from Jenny & Aaron{Everyday is a Holiday}. I couldn't get it framed and up on my wall quick enough.
It's even more beautiful in person. Everything about it is wonderful~ the colors, the amazing details, the retro feel.

It makes me want to decorate each and every room{including my boys room}in these beautiful candy coated colors!!!

Crazy for Cuckoo Clocks!

I picked up another Cuckoo Clock at the Flea Market{my third}. I have no idea if they work or even how to make them work...I just love having them to look at :)

I can see how you can get carried away and start collecting a house full.
Some interesting Cuckoo Clock History

This is where it ended up. Now I need another mini clock for the empty space.

My latest finds:

5 pounds of vintage buttons:

Vintage gumball charms:

Somebody was really into collecting these cute little charms.

Weathered pink egg slicer

I have a new favorite Shop. I love what themodernmarigold creates with vintage linens.

Seriously cute!

Found, Free and Flea...

I just pre-ordered this Book. It's released August 9th 2011, I can't wait to get a hold of it!!

Tereasa Surratt writes about how her husband convinced her that they should buy a derelict summer camp in Wisconsin, they had no idea the treasure trove they’d inherit with the property. While renovating the decrepit cabins at Camp Wandawega, they kept stumbling upon curious objects, some dating back ninety years or more: a Boy Scout patch, an old sled, a pristine set of Fiesta Ware, dozens of midcentury aprons, an untouched box of board games in their original packaging.

She knew the power that one mundane object has when grouped with its siblings. So rather than discard everything, she set out on a five-year expedition to turn the more than 150 found items into full-fledged collections.
