Some Flea Market Finds

It is almost the holiday.  Woooo Hooo and the 4th will be here on Friday.


I wanted to show you a few of the treasures I got at the flea market this past week end.

My first and favorite little find was these cute white boots.  They were too adorable to pass up.  So I brought them home and put a little glass vase in each one and filled them with some flowers from the garden.


Did you ever find something so cute like this that just makes you smile when you look at them. :)





We traveled over the border to Wisconsin and to Elkhorn's fabulous flea Market on Sunday.  I just love this flea market you can find the best treasures at this one.



Here are a few things I brought home.


As some of you may know I am a nurse and for the past few years I have been subbing in the school's nurse's offices in our school district.  So when Terry spotted this sign at the flea market I thought I had to get that chippy love to hang on my old vintage door divider to my home office.




The nurse's office sign is hung on the transom of the old vintage doors.  The lady we bought this from said it was actually a sign that was above an elementary school nurse's office.  Gotta love that it is chippy and full of history and perfect for me since I am working part time as a school nurse.

I also found this sweet little drawer.  It was all by itself no dresser to live in anymore.  So I adopted it and brought it home and now I house some of my magazines in it.





I am in the process of changing up some things in my living room and this wonderful chippy half door is going to be part of the re do in there.  I got this lovely piece from Jeanine at her Shabby Chippy
booth on Sunday.  Jeanine is my chippy shabby soul sister.  She and I laugh because when I buy pieces from her she says "yep I had that in my house and now am sad to part with it".  "It was one of my favorites".  Now it is one of my favorites in my home.
Thank you Jeanine for parting ways with your chippy loves for me to adopt into my home.





This lovely old library table is going into my new living room after she gets a little make over.  This is from the Milwaukee Public Library.  Love the history to this piece.

It is hard to see but it is stamped with the manufacture and numbered from the library.

So these a just a few of the new treasures I brought home from the flea market last Sunday.

Hoping to have my living room reveal to you soon.
Be sure to come back on Saturday.  Susan and I have a couple of great bloggers for you to meet and get to know on a more personal level.

Enjoy and have a safe 4th of July.

  2. You found some great things, Kris! I love the table and the Nurse's Office sign. There is a new flea market that opened by me. It took over where my local antique and flea mart used to be. I've got to make some time to go in and look around. It would be wonderful if they had lots of treasures.

  6. So may things to comment on!
    First, I love your little boots. I had a pair like these when I was a little girl, only red.
    Second, I think it was serendipitous that you found your Nurse's Office sign.
    The library table is awesome. I like the history that comes with it too.
    I look forward to seeing the finished results!

  24. I find it interesting that you have time to go shopping at the flea markets, decorate and still work part time as a school nurse!! Do you have a secret! Love the little white boots with the flowers and flags. Great idea and the drawer for the magazines. Could be used for material or other storage too. You sure have a creative mind. Wish I could get my juices and energy flowing!! Nancy

  41. When do you have time to look at your great magazine collection? You are such a busy lady. Of course the Nurse sign was made for you. Glad you found it. There is some artwork on the wall behind the new drawer, one day could you show us a full picture of that. Looks like something I might like to make for myself.
