Flea Market Wish List

One - This stunning farmers market sign. I want this in my kitchen! It's perfect!

I had previously shown you my two favourite booths at Christie's Antique Show a while back, but I wanted to share a few of my most favourite finds that we're throughout the show.

If I had my way, and an appropriate size truck, I would most definitely have come home with each of these stunning pieces.

Can you believe it's Friday already?

I'm off to pick out a lovely shade of white for my dining room hutch (more on that to come later), and then I think I may spend some time with my sewing machine this afternoon.

Have a lovely weekend!

PS. I have a little announcement this weekend, possibly regarding a one year anniversary, and maybe also including a giveaway of sorts.... Check back later for more on those very vague hints.


Two - This collection of jadeite, or even a just a few pieces of it. This is something I've always been drawn to, but am too afraid to purchase because I know it will become one of the those obsessive collections that grows and grows, and quite frankly, I just don't have the space for another collection!

Three - I really love this cupboard. I also really love those vintage pins. They would suit Willen's room.

Four - The charming bench. It was just in such delicate condition, which is too bad, because it would make the perfect bench for a farm table, or in a gorgeous hallway, or maybe even at the end of a bed.

Five - And finally, this pair of doors. I know! The price tag on them was so high I think I thought for a moment I was cross-eyed and seeing a few extra zeros. I wasn't. So they stayed.

How gorgeous are they?


  1. Love those doors and that sign on them!

  2. Lovely finds! I know what you mean about collections. When we moved into our townhouse, I donated almost all of my large milk glass collection to a Christian thrift store that helps needy pregnant moms primarily. It wasn't too hard to let go of because I am more interested in ironstone now. Would you believe that I was at a garage sale last week and a woman was giving away 6-7 antique doors, including a barn door? I have absolutely no space or need for one or even a place to store them for resale. It was with great regret I had to turn away. I hope that she found a good home for them! The bowling pins are perfect for a boy's room.

  3. Love all that you shared..and goodness those doors are unforgetable..have a lovely weekend XO Col ~ Afrique du Sud

  4. I love all of these delightful treasures, I could sure find the space in my home for them :) Xoxoxo

  5. WOW...I love those doors and that white cupboard!! I can see why they were favorites of yours too.:)

  6. Oh, I ♥ that sign too! It is so pretty! But you are just toying with my emotions showing me all of that jadeite. I collect it so I see green and get happy. :)

  9. hi there :)

    i really love the pictures from the fleamarket, and you're right: the doors are awesome! :)

  10. It's SOOO hard to walk away from something that your heart is saying "YES!" to and your head is saying something quite different. lol! Those doors are amazingly beautiful, and I love your ideas about that sweet bench. I have one sitting outside in my garden that I just may to haul inside and put at the foot of my bed..... :)
