Flea Market Jones

Forgive me bloggers for I have sinned. It has been 3 months since my last trip to the flea market. I'm going out of my mind waiting not-so-patiently for September when the Indianapolis flea market starts back up. I might soon have to make a road trip to some place where they realize that treasure hunting is a full time occupation. Until then I did manage to find a few treasures at local antique shops to tide me over. Vintage wallpaper, which I never find, a great wire basket that just may end up getting painted, a lovely children's book and the exact tea cup I have been searching for to scoop my flour.

  16. Great stuff! I really love the little book. I have a thing for old children's books but they're hard to find (for me anyway).
