The Latest & Greatest

With a lack of daylight after sports this week I haven't been able to take any decent photos to use in a post.  I didn't want that to hinder me any further from posting so I just snapped some tonight.   I haven't had a flea market review for awhile so I thought I'd share my latest and greatest.  This old Structo truck is adorable even though the towing mechanism on the back is long gone.  I love the tires.

I also found a great vendor that had a ton of Christmas ornaments out.  I will freely admit it, I'm a fussy vintage ornament girl.  Any old ones won't do.  I hand pick them out with no real criteria.  I just know the ones that I want when I see them.  Was that clear as mud?

I like where this is going...a fun Christmas display for sure this year.

Does anyone else keep Christmas ornaments out all year long {Colleen}?  Since I'm always looking for them I've been storing the ones I've bought so far this year in this glass canister. 

Why is there a doll leg in there?  It's the topper to my table top feather tree.  Turned upside down it's the sweetest accent to a tree.

I couldn't resist this old turquoise metal box.  The handle is really neat and the closure works great.

I will be on the PROWL for more of these tiny metal spools.  Apparently they had solder on them previously.  They are about 2x2 inches.  I could use 100 more of these.

Finally, my favorite latest, an old chipped up doll bed. 

Um.......what kind of crazy already has a doll mattress that fits the bed exactly?  ME!!!!!!
