I said goodby to my flea market yesterday after I had picked up a few more things I liked.
I found a hand painted tole tray which I hung on the wall in the sunroom and also a Paris style flower bucket which I will take home if I can squeeze it in. I can picture it on my deck with a pot of foxgloves in it. $3.00 for the tray and 2.00 for the bucket. I continued along until I came to a gal selling jewellery and I found some neat things. Except for things in the glass cases everything else was 3 for 5.00. I found a rhinestone necklace and 2 pretty pearl necklaces both have crystals spaced between. They could be worn together as they do now or each seperately. I have an idea for the rhinestone one. I am going to make something based on the life of Queen Victoria whether it be a wallhanging or a journal. I can use all or part of it for that.

We are still living out of ice chests. Ordered a pizza last night and ate half and the other half tonight. Won't care if I don't see another pizza for awhile. Called Sears service today and they could send a man Thurs. I am going to recall the man I called Sat. first thing in the morning and see if we can get him out tomorrow. If not, a neighbour gave me another name who she said she liked and did a good job. Will keep you posted on the Perils of Pauline (otherwise known as FredaB).

The little tray looks beautiful where you have it displayed. Hope you get your freezer fixed soon and that you manage to find another flea market where you are going.

I can see you going into withdrawals already! Do you have a flea market nearby in IL?
