I was at the Farmer's Market at 7:30 a.m. Thank goodness I got there early because I found a ton of treasures!! They had everything from junk to this guy in the front who made wonderful objects from cedar wood.
Before I left I stuck $25 in my pocket. I didn't carry a purse. Instead I brought along a tote bag to hold any treasures I might find.
I had my tote filled on the second booth I stopped at! Just look at all these treasures I got for only $11.75! Vases, magazines, a book, a flamingo, a magnificent candle holder (I think it's a chicken with accented with gemstones), a pair of Dutch shoe planters...
I have seen these cast iron corn muffin pans many times. They are usually about $10. When I saw this one for $2, I grabbed it. It's incredibly heavy. I can't wait to use it.
See that flamingo? I am really into flamingos lately. Yesterday I finished a flamingo quilt block and today I bought this little cutie. What is it for? you ask.Well, here it is in my garden.
How adorable! I am just loving this $1 purchase. I even had to change the watering can arrangement to pink flowers to match the flamingo.
Remember that first picture with the cedar arbor and the potting bench? Well, they are now in my yard! The man gave me a great deal since I bought both. DH had to go home and get the truck to transport them.
I spent 3 hours staining the arbor white. When I got done DH did the top. When it gets dry we will put it in the garden and I will show you a picture of it.
The potting bench is sitting on the deck. I need to decide what color to paint it. I am pretty sure it will be aqua with an orange bird house.
