When I saw this mourning pin I had to have it. I didn`t buy the matching one. I should have because it was probably her husband. Oh well, you can`t buy everything! The half doll was a steal. Two gorgeous collars a dollar each. Other goodies to alter....
The last weekend of every month Nashville has a flea market at the State Fairgrounds. Even though it was quite chilly, I managed to sift through and dig through several different booths to finds some treasures!
I wish I could take some of you along with me. It`s worth the trip...

Oooh La La! I am attending Kim Caldwell`s Moulin Rouge event next month. I joined a Bracelet Bling swap where we swap 15 pieces of vintage bling and send a bracelet along with them. I`ll be sending these beauties to our swap hostess and she will attach them to our bracelets. How fun to see my bracelet put together with other can can girl`s vintage bling! I`ll be taking a little bit of 14 other girls home with me. How fun is that?.......

These three books are incased in this larger book on the right. What an incredible find. A sweetheart book with beautiful love poems and stories. Both from the 1920`s.
A pink velvet headband (looks like a crown) with millinery and a lovely hat with velvet flowers....my favorite! Another fun Friday hunting and discovering vintage treasures. Until next week.....I hope you find some treasures too!

Saturday was play day. Each month I have a mini workshop or project that my friends share with me. Of course lunch is always included! Organic chili with cornbread, homemade cookies, and raspberry cheesecake.
This is the finished Valentine Banner. I draped it across my china cabinet. I love how my vintage china looks as a background.

This is the top of the hat. Who would have worn such a funny looking hat? Lovely millinery,though.
I was so delighted to find a 1940`s garter! Such pretty ribbon flowers. I love the pink and blue! Maybe I`l wear it to Moulin Rouge....
Sweet story book dolls. I love how their eyes open and close. At $3.00 each they were a steal! (Baked cookies while taking pictures).
These Baby Ben alarm clocks were pricey but the rhinestones won me over. They both work... so if nothing else, I`ll never be late!
A Valentine I bought for Hubby a few years back and a vintage corsage.....yes, I wear it!
A sweet Valentine doll made to put on a heart box from the 1940`s... I gave her an arm and cleaned her up a bit. A steal at $3.00! I love her.
Have a Happy Heart day! I hope your day is Blessed and full of LOVE!

Vintage Ostrich feathers....you gotta love them! I found these from a women in her 70`s whose mother was a milliner. I passed them by a couple of months ago and went back to buy them. I couldn`t believe they were still there and 50% off!
So many possibilities don`t you think? Love the colors and textures.
