Spring is here and the Flea Markets have begun.

Happy Monday.  I went to the flea market this week end and here are some pics and some of the treasures I found.  It was beautiful in the 60's to walk around the flea market.  It was good to see some of my favorite vendors back for the season.



Julie Norkus is one of my fav vendors always has the cutest displays in her booth. You can visit her blog here.  I loved this Spring sign she did up.  I was taking photos with my phone so I was a little off center with this picture.  This sign was fabulous.

Again not the greatest pics with the I Phone but this vintage suit case was adorable with the jean lining.


There were just all kinds of spring treasures.

Well Hello..... This little bench screamed to me.  This cutie came home with me and is going on my front porch for summer.  Ohhhhh I cannot wait to decorate her with beautiful blooms.

I could not resist this cute twig wreath and nest to hang on my mirror over the mantel at home.

I got this cute Guest Cottage sign for my guest room.  Another great creation of Julie.




It was a nice day to walk the flea market.  Smell the fresh air and look at all the fun and funky treasures.
Hope your week will be a good one.

  2. Sounds like a great day to me, Kris! Love your new Guest Cottage sign. It looks like lots of great things were on display. I'm loving that hall tree in black. I have a hall tree I painted before we moved and this is a good view of how it would look in black.

  5. Isn't it wonderful that Spring is here--or close--and flea markets, yard sales, and such are beginning again? It's like everyone's waking up! I see at least 5 things I'd love to have. Sure makes me want to get out. That bench is wonderful--and the jeans lining=inspiration! I feel like I've been neglecting you lately--with being away and then all kinds of happenings around here. So glad I have a few minutes today to catch up. Hugs, Dru

  11. Kris,
    What a delightful fun day you had in early Spring. Looks like an impressive flea market, love the blackboard (?) sign. Your bench is lovely and I look forward to seeing it after you stage it with a floral vignette. I adore all your new finds and you go girl, hanging up that wonderful Guest cottage sign already. Love it all.
    XO,
    Vera

  14. First I want to say I love the redone table with the pretty legs! Great job! I loved some of your flea market signs too! The jean lining in the suitcase, your new guest sign and the bench! I know it will be filled with beautiful flowers soon!! Nancy

  15. Kris- What great finds. Is that a miniature bench? It is hard to tell cuz I don't know if those are shutters or doors behind the bench....which reminds me I am surprised you didn't bring THOSE doors (shutters?) home with you, too. Glad you and Terry got out and had some fun walking around. That guest sign is adorable and PERFECT for MY room! xo Diana

  16. Oh, if I could have afforded it, that jean lined case would have come home with me. The outside reminds me of one my dad had years ago!

  17. Kris...you found some awesome goodies!! I can't wait for the huge flea market that is next month at our Fairgrounds. It is my favorite one and I look forward to it every year in the Spring and Fall.

  23. We have nothing like your lovely markets here Kris. I'm so jealous! My hubby just got back from a work trip to Florida. I've never been to the US but living there is tempting when I see all the lovely treasures! Maybe I'll visit one day. :)

  24. I can't think of a better thing to do on the weekend.......we don't have flea markets like that down here....😞 Your bench is adorable Kris and like you, I cannot wait to Springify my porches. I did buy the prettiest huge ferns yesterday. Just putting one on the front porch said "instant Spring".
