French club fundraiser flea market finds!

Our local high school’s French club held a fundraising flea market and I wanted to share some of my finds with you! I was thrilled to find a white ironstone gravy boat, I think that white ironstone is going to be my next conquest in collections…I just love it! A small white with black transfer ware pitcher marked made in England found a home in my corner cabinet,a primitive hog scraper, a rusty primitive scale, a chippy paint metal food ricer, a teapot for my mother in law, 2 doilies,a cute prim doll sitting on a small wood chair with a birdhouse, and last but not least 2 blue mason jars! There were so many great tables set up and it drew such a nice big crowd. I hope they raised a lot of money!

Mr. Jinxy strikes again.

I had made up my mind as to where I was going to put my new bowl and pitcher but, didn’t take into account that it was not a very heavy set and my little four legged family members could easily knock it over. This morning that’s exactly what happened, a near catastrophe! Mr. Jinxy my Persian cat was bird and squirrel watching and got so excited at the sight of something outside that he bumped into my pitcher and it tipped over into the bowl.  This is not the first time that Mr. Jinxy has done such a thing so i couldn’t act surprised when i heard the clang.  Yikes…by the sound of I thought for sure it had broke/cracked or in the very least had a nice chip taken out of it but, Nothing! I was so relieved and happy. I swiftly moved his one to the hallway on a drop leaf table (no bird watching from this table) and put the original heavy bowl and pitcher set back in its original spot. Then I had to give Mr. Jinxy a bit of extra attention because all of the commotion with the clanging noise he had caused had him startled. I guess the moral for me was that something’s are better left untouched and as much as I love my “stuff”, I love my furry family members more!

Country and Primitive decorating give a warm, cozy feel to your home

Schoolboy Blue painted roomI really believe your home should be about comfort. I don’t want to own a sofa that I cannot put my feet up on and relax. I want a home to live in ,not just look at. It’s Always fun to decorate with older things, flea market finds etc… and make them your own.
