Happy Trash to Treasure Tuesday!
Let me tell you about my weekend.
On Saturday, I did one of my FAVORITE things. Nope, didn’t go to the Buckeyes game, although I did enjoy their 38-0 win after the fact.
I went to the Springfield Flea Market in Springfield, Ohio.
One word: WOW.
I’ve been to flea markets before, but this was my first visit to this EXTRAVAGANZA.
At one point, I started wondering if we really needed to eat for the rest of September.
I almost spend the grocery budget. Instead, I acted all mature, and only spend $64.
Lookie what I got! I even did a pretty good job of sticking with my “wish list.”
Just look at this fabulous old window. I LOOOOVE the handles. This is going to hang on our bathroom wall. As soon as I can convince the guy with the power tools that buying an old window WAS a good idea, and that hanging it on the wall is a GENIUS idea. Stay tuned, this could take awhile.
This is an old sugar mold (at least that’s what the guy told me). The holes are the perfect size for candles. I HEART the green color. This found a home on our patio table for now, we can always use some flickering candlelight in the evenings.
Two ball jars in my favorite color. Now I have five! I’ll let you know when I come up with a fabulous way to display these.
These old wooden spools were only $1 each! The ends are made out of some kind of slate. I think these make wonderful rustic candlesticks. They’re not bad as a pumpkin pedestal either!
And, last but not least, I found an old Pepsi box!! Pottery Barn, eat your heart out, this was only $10.
Oh yeah, and Saturday night, my twelve year old son BROKE HIS LEG. Seriously, people, I am NOT making this up. The seven year old got his cast off today and now has a walking boot. His brother got a knee immobilizer for the next four weeks. When the girls get home, I’m going to wrap them in bubble wrap, convince them to give up sports, and hire a CHESS instructor. Chess is safe, isn’t it?
