Flea Market / Thrift Store Finds

I'll start with todays finds...this is a pretty little black vase that has a built in frog

Perfect for my just picked Camillia
For a minute I thought It was snowing...nope just spring blossoms

55 cents

I found out this is a pear tree

came across this adorable lamp...$4

I got the sheet music on the lampshade, I just need to get some trim to finish it

This little guy was also 55cents... I tore off the flowers

I've been looking for a wreath to cover in these paper roses
I better get busy, It will take a LOT of roses
I've seen quite a few on other blogs and thought it would look nice in my bedrood

Then there was the Sunday Flea Market in it!!
I found these beautiful pieces of lace

I thought I would show you a close is sooo tight and tiny I cant imagine
how long it took someone to crochet this
Hope you enjoyed my days off with me.
it was 80 today...I'm not missing winter at all.

Heres the close up

Some nice finds... I am always so amazed that leaves don't fall off the leaves in So Cal until about now and then spring comes right after. We are at least getting lots of bulbs pushing their heads through the dirt and that gives me hope! thanks for visiting my blog.

Hi Laurie, looks like you have been to San Diego County - isn't it beautiful?!?! My daughter lives in Oceanside and I love visiting her there. Love your photos and seeing the things you do with your thrift stuff! Miss the snow yet?
