Flea Market Pretties and Beautiful Banners

As I have shared in previous posts, one of my favorite things to do on beautiful days is to treasure hunt at local flea markets. Well it was a simply lovely day today--sunny and warm--the perfect day for treasure hunting. So my husband, my son (yes who should have been in school :), Emma (the little girl I babysit), and I piled into the car and headed for Rogers, Ohio. An amazing flea market is held there every Friday. Rows and Rows of treasures just waiting to be discovered. I usually dig into every box I see, I could be there for hours and hours. Today however I did use some restraint knowing that the patience of a three year old would soon be gone. Emma and I searched the booths together looking for the perfect purchases. We had fun looking at all the vintage toys. She was such a good girl and so patient. Just look at the beautiful things we found :

First is this lovely vintage rhinestone crown pin. I just could not leave this behind. And guess what it was only $1.00. I could hardly believe it.

Oh and I just loved these pretty little pins and sweet earrings. I can just picture how they will look on my next collage.

And these precious buttons---all in my favorite colors.

I think my favorite treasure of the day is this sweet vintage rose pin. I wish I had a whole garden of this precious pin.

Before I close this post for today I would love to share with you this splendid mosaic collage sent to me by Tamy Ottomeyer. Tamy is the gracious host of a banner swap that I recently participated in. She has a lovely blog Ga Ga for Garlands

I had such fun creating my banner and really appreciate all her hard work to make this swap possible. Thank you again Tamy!!!! I love to see all the creative work that went into these banners. Enjoy the collage---each banner is just lovely.
