Lucky at the Flea Market

Hello my dear friends,
hope you are all well and enjoying a beautiful Fall. I was lucky enough to find these two old measuring cups at the flea market. Aren't there pretty?

 I was also lucky in finding vintage linens and kitchen towels for a reasonable price - which a hard to find.  My muse is on a vacation right now but I finished a Christmas gift bag:)

 The label was provided from Karen our Graphics Fairy. Thank you so much,Karen.

I'll be joining Blissful Whites at Timewashed and Brag Monday at The Graphics Fairy

Wishing you all a wonderful week and as always thank you so much for stopping by and for taking the time to leave a comment.
Hugs and love,

You've indeed been lucky to find all those wonderful treasures, my dear Marie. The measuring cups are beautiful and make great vases too. The vintage linens look so pretty in the basket.
Your gift bag is very lovely. I can't believe that your muse is on vacation. I think she's already in the Christmas mood ;-).
Big hugs,

Nicely done!

I love it when you buy special items at a flea market. I buy many lovely things at my local market and love to find an extra special treasure. x

How wonderful finds, my dear friend -
the cups are beautiful, and the linens looks lovely in your basket, and with the old spools on the side !!
Your christmas bag is the sweetest with the lovely label transfer, and beautiful laces,
and OH your chair with the flowerfilled basket and white pumpkin---how gorgeous it looks dear Marie.
I wish you a happy week ahead !

Those measuring cups were a terrific find! How can you say your muse is on holiday, lol, and then show us the gorgeous bag you made? I think she is standing right behind you :-).

Great find on the measuring cups. What a cute Christmas bag...and this coming from someone that once told me she could not sew!

Yitte said...

The measuring cups are really great. And so is the linen it looks wonderful in that basket. Your creativity on holiday? That christmas gift bag is lovely.

Wonderful finds Marie. I love the vignette you have set in your yard.

I love your gift bag, Marie! I've got some small bags on my "want to do" list, as well as a few to hold wine for gifts this year. The image you used would be perfect for that.

You really lucked out with that amazing fabric! I love your fabric gift bag, whoever receives it is one lucky person! A gift within a gift:)

Rhonda said...

So pretty, Marie, your posts always lift my spirits. I recently had a friend in my studio who saw some of your beautiful creations and I told her about you. It is so nice to be surrounded by sweet blog friends.

I am sure I can smell the lavender from here - what a pretty photograph that makes and all those delightful finds you sourced at the Flea Market, how wonderful.
The Christmas gift bag is delightful.

Terri said...

Lucky fab finds! I too, had luck with some linens today. It's not that often I find good tea towels.
Your little Christmas bag is very vintage sweet!
