Sunday Flea Market Finds
Hello Friends! Sorry for my unexpected absence from the blogosphere. I hadn’t anticipated a busy week so I didn’t have anything prepared in advance, so I was caught a little off guard and had nothing ready to be posted. Plus, I haven’t finished my DIY I started two weeks ago. It is a little more involved than my usual projects, but it is turning out great. Although it takes so much work I don’t think anyone will be interested in making one, but I’ll try to finish it this week and post it by Thursday. I am so sorry that I haven’t posted a DIY in 2 1/2 weeks.
I did find some time today to go to the flea market after a little Sunday brunch with friends. I hadn’t gone in a couple of weeks, so there was a lot of new stuff to check out.
This week I got a spider pin, a yellow telephone brooch and this bizarre face pendant.
I am loving this sweet little spider guy, he is so cute. I can’t wait to pin him to unexpected places on my clothes. I might take the pin part off and make him into a ring.
I have been eyeing this piece since the first time I went to the flea market, which was such a long time ago. I can’t explain it, but I am so drawn to it. I have no idea who made it or who was expected to wear it. It is so big and shiny and the face is kind of scary. I don’t know when or what I am going to style it with. All I really know is that I love it. It is a statement piece if ever I saw one.
Again, I apologize for my absence and I will try to have super posts this week to make up for it.
Thrift Store Score
Hello friends old and NEW! Sunday I typically post my weekly flea market finds, but this Sunday the Hubster and I just stayed home. We had a really lovely morning of coffee and magazines and talking. Sometimes it’s nice to just hide out and pretend we are on a desert island. But I digress…However, this week I did take a little trip to Lovely Betty which is an amazing vintage/thrift boutique across the river. It use to be located in an old practically abandoned mall but it recently moved to an old house, and it has really transformed. It had everything from designer bags to a $1 bin.
When I finally left after an hour of shopping I came away with a red blazer, a hounds-tooth swing coat, a wool cardigan, a front zipper dresses and my first maxi skirt. There were just so many pieces there I wanted, I really need to go back…well, after a few weeks of saving maybe. I really need to start shopping my closet and save some money.
This maxi skirt was my favorite find, it is so whimsical. But I have never worn a maxi skirt before so I am not sure how well I pull it off or how to style it. Any thoughts? I think it will take a few days of trying it on and putting it back in my closet before I actually wear it out.
I am so glad I went to investigate this store it was absolutely amazing. I encourage you to set out on a little summer adventure to check out a thrift or vintage store you have never been to, you never know what you might find.
P.S. Don’t forget to enter my GIVEAWAY! It ends on Friday.
Sunday Flea Market Finds
Hello Dahlings! How has everyone been? Sorry for my absence the last couple of days, but it was Canada Day weekend and, the sun was shinning and the drinks were flowing. I hope all my Canadian readers and fellow Canadian bloggers enjoyed themselves this weekend!
This Sunday was pretty fantastic. Before we headed off to the flea market, the hubster and I plus two of my besties enjoyed a beautiful brunch in the morning sun. There is nothing I love more than brunch with friends on a patio in the summer. Then we all strolled to the flea market and we all got some great stuff.
This week my amazing finds were a little lion brooch, a Tucan brooch, a beaded coin purse, an art deco ring, an 80’s vintage clutch and a horse brooch/scarf holder.
I am in love with this little Tucan, he’s so colorful and sweet. I have images in my head of all the amazing summer dresses he is going to adorn. Although, I think have officially gone over the edge, I have way too many brooches. So many I am thinking I should start sharing, so check back on Monday for my first… GIVEAWAY!
