Flea Market Finds

Well I think you all know my daughter is getting married next year. She's decided she wants a vintage themed wedding. Well how much more fun could a mom have??? I'm designing the whole thing so flea markets here we come!

We found lots of old brooches for her bouquet and a few pieces of china. We'll be doing mix and match china so as long as they were cheap, in good shape, and not God awful patterns were buying them. :)

Of course along the way I found some AWESOME stuff for my art. I spent $31 total and that included REAL CRYSTAL! I was one happy camper yesterday.

















Excuse the scribble on the side there...The shot ended up taking in some personal stuff so I threw it in paint and scribbled it out real quick! :P~~~~ So there's a cigar box, a shell necklace (you'll see pieces of that very soon), a metal belt, a metal frame, two Eiffel towers, some charms and ten, yes I said 10, crystal chandelier pieces. Not bad for the money. Of course the crystal was the most expensive.

















My words of advice, find a flea market near you!

Love ya,
~Deb~

    1. Seriously? No flea market? That just sucks...maybe you can find one in another county.
