Lefton Miss Priss?

I bought this teapot and salt and pepper shakers at a flea market last week for $10 in hopes that they were actually the real thing. There are no stickers on the bottom but the teapot is stamped "1516-4CUP" and the salt and peppers shakers both read "1511" on the bottom. After reading some Ebay listings for the "real McCoys," I'm confident that I made a good investment!

I love the way they look on the pink handmade doily that I purchased at the flea market today. I couldn't bring myself to get a boring white one. Plus the pink matches my bouquet of peonies from my sister's wedding!

Vintage Wedding Flowers

Just wanted to share some vintage flair from my sister's wedding last night! I found this hairpiece at the flea market for $3 last fall. I put it in a plastic bag with a dryer sheet to get rid of the musty smell - it worked wonders!

You can kind of see how it looked in my hair in this picture with the beautiful bride and my new favorite brother! Although I don't really know what else was going on here...

Congratulations sissy!!!

Rainy Day Blues

No flea market today! So I headed down the road to the antique(junk) furniture barn run by the nice old man with the bug eye glasses who will sell you anything for $10 if you're a cute female. It's really hit or miss, but today's trip was definitely a hit after finding these Ball jars with milk glass lids. Can you guess which color I picked up?

I was a little nervous to ask about the cost of these beauties, as my favorite old man was no where to be found. But when I asked the lady for the price, she replied that they were only $2 each! I only got the blue one (of course) but I'm so tempted to go back and buy the whole lot.

And she even said that she would go down to $25 for the 3 lily of the valley teacups and 8 tea saucers. What do you think Mommy?
