Hi Everyone!! On Tuesday I tried to post my Tuesday Display Chain, but Poof!!! when I published it, it disappeared into thin air and hasn’t been seen since!! Hopefully this post will publish. I thought you may like to see more flea market goodies I found. Most of these pieces will be painted and sold at my biggest show of the year that is in August for three weekends. We have a permanent little house in the woods (about 18X18) that we rent out for the later shows there.
Here are my goodies!……………………….
A sweet foley sifter and zinc lids…………………
A GORGEOUS, repeat– GORGEOUS, wooden cheese box….copper cow bell….enamel spoon…..and a swirl blue mug…..(I may keep that mug) This box is wonderful….13” tall by 16” across the top. I offered $8 for it and he turned me down. I sent Al up to him (while I hid at another booth ) and had HIM offer $8 and he took it!! I just hate that!! I also hate it when a lumberyard tries to push crappy lumber off onto me if Al isn’t with me!! It’s like “the little woman” won’t know any difference! I come from a long line of woodworkers—Al is the city boy!! I’ll get off my soapbox now.
another large cheesebox (with hideous stencilling) ,a little coal shovel, and tin cup. I love painting cheeseboxes and they get snapped up before anything else. The little shovels are always excellent for sales too. This cheesebox is 9” X 16”—lots of room for painting.
Just a few more Pittsburgh pics—this is the little park downtown where Occupy Pittsburgh stayed until they were kicked out. The grass is just in terrible shape—down to the dirt—and they still have the fence up. Beautiful trees and beds of tulips…..
A view of the city….so pretty—but there ALWAYS seems to be construction!! Doesn’t it seem like there is neverending roadwork!?!
A pretty shot of Heinz Field—home of the Pittsburgh Steelers………………
One of Pittsburgh’s bridges—did you know Pittsburgh has more bridges than any city in the world?—even more than Venice, Italy………….I love that so many of Pittsburgh’s bridges are black n’ gold!
This is the demolition site of the Igloo—the old home of the Pittsburgh Penguins (boo hoo-they are out of the cup race! ) The old igloo is gone now.
Just an update—Brian is doing well-he was able to start back to work last Thursday and even with some numbness still in his fingers, got right back into work. His coworkers and customers have been great to him and watch over him. Tuesday we take him to the specialist for labwork and another MRI then to talk to the doctor. They are monitoring him until he starts treatment. We have to take him because he is not allowed to drive until August because of the seizures. It would be so much easier for him if he could drive, but he will get through this. Thank you all for your support!! Hope you enjoyed the goodies—winter seems so loooong without flea markets! Have a wonderful weekend–Jan
