the sun is out
the sky is blue
it must be time
to start the hunt
.....
the hunt for junk
that is......

i happen to be very good at this game

you want it...i'll find it

but early in the 'flea market' season,
it's just fun to get out there
and see what's available


last weekend it was finally nice enough
to leave the house and hit the flea


how cool are these???
they are huge old floor scrubbers,
cant wait to see what i do with them !


a box of old letters that will be painted and shabby'd up


scrabble tiles i always pick up


some cool old books..
this one might come in handy


or maybe this one


this one just cracked me up



picked up some 'lifts' for my displays


frames..........always


some random junk


a box of handles...........hmmmm


some birdies to alter


silverware...also an 'always'


pretty forks


my friend Casey hooked me up with a TON of slides




and this huge barrel just full of old linens


mostly cotton and all patched up !
just the way i like 'em


and of course lots and lots

that i cant show you....just yet

this is my favorite time of year.........
there are so many people out...
and so many fleas to go to.....

this past weekend i hit our local one,
a church one,
and an antique fair !!

let the games begin !

silver - taxes - silver - taxes - silver - taxes - silver- taxes

this is my dilema.....
my 'other' life is that of a tax preparer.
(who would do that you say??)
well...me....so

time if not something i have
much of these days
but i didnt want to miss my silver sunday !!

that said...
i took a few moments and snapped
a few of my favorite things
for you to peruse...
just so you dont forget me......

they say you have to kiss a lot of frogs
before you find your prince??
i kiss this bad boy every day...
still havent found my guy.....

having worn specs since i was liitle,
these old ones just make me smile.....
maybe i'll add a ribbon and use
them for a while
that would freak people out
wouldnt it?
then they'd really know
how nuts i am !

cuppa rings

my favorite locket...
with my favorite girls


this combines 2 of my favs
old keys and numbers

more of my favs

my pap's watch

my dad's baby silverware
how cool is that???

oh well....
the snow has finally melted....well almost....
i have hopes that spring is on it's way....

when i get a few seconds, i'm working on my show schedule.

i cant wait until the piles and piles and piles
of paper in my office disappear
and i can bury myself in my studio.

why do i do this again????
hmmmm...every march, i wonder.........

happy silver sunday
see you next month !!
