Last Pink Saturday I shared that fellow PINKIE Jeanne, of Backyard Neighbor, was going to be in our town . . .and we were gonna meet up for a swell visit and a flea market and lunch!!!
Well. . .that all happened and we had such a great time!!!
The flea market was held in front of the shops in Greenwood, MO, a wonderful little town known for its antique stores.
Jeanne (on the left) is shown here with Patty, one of my pals.
She found a bargain with this great old blanket. Bonnie was saying something like: "YES, Jeanne, you NEED that!!!" :) And I guess she did cuz she bought it!! :)
We were shopping the outdoor flea market by 8:00 a.m. It was HOT and muggy, so this indoor shop with it's A/C turned on felt great to us!! I'm telling you how muggy it was cuz that's what happened to my hair do!! It melted!!! :)
At this point we'd been working hard at antiquing and bargain finding. Patty and Jeanne decided to take a little break when they spotted those amazing wicker chairs!!
We ate at the Tea Room located in the Greenwood Antique Mall. . .and it was terrific!!
Jeanne enjoyed her yummy dessert . . .
and so did I!
I hit the jackpot on "finds" that day. It's so much fun when that happens!! Here are just a few of them!!
The fabric piece will be great as a table-covering. . .and I LOVE that country red tiered metal piece!! I can see it used in so many ways. Right now I have it in the middle of my dining room table, atop a great patriotic runner. It holds an Americana looking candle and some red, white, and blue florals (muted colors). A huge crow stands next to it (I found that at another flea market some time ago). The crow sports a little 48 star flag.
I have a "collection" of patriotic glasses going. . .so when Bonnie spied four more I begged her to split them with me. . .and she did!! AND when I spotted that awesome MUTTON BUSTIN' ribbon in patriotic colors. . .and for only $3.00. . .well I snatched that up, too!!
That's not all I hauled home, but I'd better keep the rest hidden from my husband for awhile! :)
I can tell I'm going to have a hard time keeping the MUTTON BUSTIN' ribbon. . .THE STONE RABBIT has taken quite a fancy to it!! He was really happy it didn't say BUNNY BUSTIN'!! :)
My visit with Jeanne was so short, but so very much fun!!! She's just as sweet in real life as she appears to be on her blog!!
Now, for lots more PINK SATURDAY fun, just visit Beverly of HOW SWEET THE SOUND! She will have a long list of other bloggers who are ready to share their PINKS with you this weekend!!
