Helen and I decided that right after Christmas we would head to the flea market. It is held every weekend at the fairgrounds and it is huge. Takes about 4+ hours just to walk by everything. December was extremely warm here- like in the 60's and 70's! But of course the Saturday that we went it was in the 40's. We have been having a great time over the past 8 months or so checking out the thrift stores in the area and getting unique and cool stuff to decorate our bedrooms and my art studio with.
Well we went by the iron man and she fell in love with the green star- made by the Mennonites. Then I saw the little iron stars for $1 each- those will be made into something for Helen's room. We are going to decorate it in greens, turquoises, blues, and maybe red? We also got two more Campbell soup mugs for $1 each to add to the collection. I think that soup tastes best in a cool mug.
I got the old wooden tool holder and the iron basket for my art studio.
On the way home we stopped at Goodwill and I saw the doll house. Cheap! I know I will rip out those hideous curtains but I can't decide if I was to paint it in a Christmas theme and make a little village or decorate it to go w/ my art studio. I'll have to think about it. Years later I will decorate it for a grandchild to play with.
