Pothead and post office box

Hello Friends,
are you tired of seeing my
flea finds every week?

I sure hope not because
some SWEET treasures
came home with me today!!
Does this little pothead make you smile?

When I was at the big flea
market this morning, I
saw similar corner iron brackets like
the ones above, but the vendor
wanted $30.00!!
So I walked away...

Lo and behold...I found smaller similar
brackets at the smaller flea market
for $1.00 each!!!

I fell in love with the rusty chippy birdhouse
painted in turquoise and
of course couldn't pass up
the cute  jewelry trinkets.

 The capodimonte is pretty BUT...I might
try and cut the roses off for my mosaic. (gasp!!)
The linens have a tag...made in Ireland.

Double Gasp!! This Italian platter will also be used for my does have a chip on the side
if it makes you feel better.. :)

The sewing box is filled with buttons, needles, thread,
thimbles...I like that it's adorable and does
not take much room.

Yaaaahoooo!!!...a black post office cubby box,
The names were removed to protect
the innocent. LOL

You are wondering why I did not clean it?
Well, it sits in the back of my car heading to
my little shop, there I will clean and price it.
It's way too heavy to carry back and forth!!!

Still looking for something better.
