Saturday Treasures

I was able to do a little flea marketing today with Alex.  We got a bit of a late start but oh the treasures were abundant.  I will let my pictures tell the story.......
These next two treasures were not purchased today at the flea market but they truly are my treasures everyday.......
I also wanted to share this beautiful treasure made by Sarah.  She was my partner in the recent tussie mussie swap hosted by A Swap for all Seasons.  I was delighted to see that she used some of my favorite paper by Cosmo Cricket. 
Thank you Sarah I could not love it more!!!
I hope you all are having a fun filled weekend making memories and finding treasures of your own.

Hi Mimi! I really love your finds today, and it would be hard for me to pick a favorite, although I'm leaning towards the ones with the 4 legs!! :-)) I love flea markets because as you know you can really find some great treasures at them--I found my button collection at one! Hope you're having a nice weekend!!

I'm drooling over your "finds"...the buttons, the paperdolls, the hankies
all of them. Where do you flea shop?

Oh my goodness, what treasures you found. I love them all, especially the puppies. I have two cats that are also my treasures. We don't have flea markets here, but I have lived where they have them and I loved going and finding treasures. How fun. Thank you for sharing.

I am amazed at all of your wonderful finds! I think I also would have bought every single thing that you did! I was hoping to go to our flea market, but unfortunately it rained. Got my fingers crossed for next week!
Happy Sunday!

It's been so long since I visited, Mimi, and there's so much to comment on! Love all your flea market finds... and I got so excited as I looked at each picture. Wow, handkerchiefs, buttons, paper dolls... I really need to get out to flea markets more often! I did some scrolling down and love the charms you made with pieces of vintage handkerchiefs. What a great idea! I have some old handkerchiefs that were mine when I was a little girl. Now if I could just remember where they are... So fun to spend a little time "visiting" with you today! Have a happy Sunday!!

Hi Mimi! Hmm...you found some really good treasures! Congrats! What fun it will be. Finding them paper dolls was a great find too! Those are getting harder to find. Good Eye! Have fun, and good luck to you!:)

Oh my goodness, Mimi!!! I am drooling over all of your finds!!! The paperdolls are beyond gorgeous!!!! I'm missing being able to rummage or go to craft fairs. My sciatic nerves are not cooperating with me anymore, unfortunately. :( I'll have to live vicariously thru your treasure hunts now!! :) I hope to be back in the saddle again real soon. Less than two weeks until the baby arrives and then some recovery time and then I have to get back into my Etsy shops. I miss them already and I've only been in vacation mode for less than a week!! : )
