The first fall flea markets
Fun finds. One man had two huge cartons of red and white transferware, all packed up for leaving.
A few bits and pieces still were out and I rummaged, found some goodies for autumn decorating and then for Christmas.
I didn't realize these creamers were identical til I got home. I am picturing them with big red amaryllis bulbs/ flowers for the holidays...
And I love the bowl despite its chips. It's an older piece [tho not very!], nice patina.
It will be great with berries, leaves, acorns for fall; a couple of my little calico birdies nestled inside,
...then with pine cones and Christmas motto hearts---[Ho-ho-ho!---in December.
The Lightning brand jar is not one I've ever seen before.
And while I could not really capture it in the photos, the Atlas Ball jar, right, has wonderful old, odd, wavy glass
And here are the tiniest ones, with miniature bouquets of flowers. My mother always filled her small antique ink wells with flowers and set them out all around the Cape Cod house. Fun to find in the guestroom or bathroom or kitchen windowsill. She loved making them...
The little brown bottle is from my own beach, one of my free finds. I washed it very well. Wonder what was in it, once upon a time...?
More flea marketing this coming weekend. I'm looking forward to it... Any fun markeyts for you guys? Tell me what you find, okay!?
gone to the beach....
