Flea Market Finds

Mr. Wonderful and I headed out to some flea markets Saturday with the two girls in tow. I honestly was not thrilled with the flea market we chose because I just haven't found much in there lately. But boy did we find some good stuff. Some of it wasn't exciting to take pictures of, so I'll spare you the details. But we got an self-inflating mattress for camping, computer parts including a sound card that we needed for the kids computer($100 worth for $8), some cute sandals for the girls, a trolling motor to shorten that dreaded canoe trip that is coming up. What else? What else? Oh, yeah! The good stuff!

The first is this gorgeous brass frame. It is super heavy and only $5. Can't wait to make this thing even purtier! Any suggestions for colors? I think black would look amazing, hot pink, peacock blue, etc.

Next, we have this shelf. This baby is going white to join some other shelves. I saw this
on the Nester's blog, and have had my eye out for some more shelves. Don't you just love her home?

At a second flea market, the treasures continued. My girls are really into doing puzzles right now. We found a stash of appropriately sized puzzles for 25 cents each, 2 awesome stadium seats, and these lovelies. Aren't they just the perfect color? And the best part....only 6.95 each!!! Can't wait to do a room makeover and use these!!
