Second Sunday Of The Month

Good morning! Happy Monday to everyone. Another weekend has come and gone, did you have a nice one? I hope so. The WX Peddlers Faire is always the second Sunday of each month...rain or shine. Well, we have been having so much rain the past week and a half, I've had my fingers crossed for days, wishing for nicer weather, and it worked. No rain, but very foggy. I love the fog so that was fine with me. We met our good friends very was still dark and for about a half an hour we needed our flashlights. This didn't slow us down and we just shopped away. This month there were less sellers (I think because of the weather) but we still found treasures. I found..... this beautiful table runner. It is all hand cross stitched in the sweetest rose pink color and I thought it would be pretty for Valentine's time. I didn't want to wait until February so I put it on the dinning room table, with this cut glass punchbowl that was my Grandmother's. I think they look lovely together. Here are most of my other finds................... Just some little items I'll add to my collections. After all the shopping we went to our favorite breakfast spot. They are still serving their yummy pumpkin pancakes, Mmmm, they were delish.

My DH goes to a little flea market every Saturday and look what he found......I'm crazy over green and just love depression glass. There are eleven salad plates and they are in very nice condition...........
Thank you are always thinking of me.

I've been tagged by Michelle at Cottage Home. I'm to share 7 unusual/weird facts abouts myself. I love reading tags but I'm having a hard time coming up with 7 facts to share. But here goes:

1. ~ Love unusual smells: gasoline, paint and my favorite skunk:).
2. ~ I don't like to wear tennis shoes.
3. ~ I have to sleep with a small light on.
4. ~ Ate white school paste.
5. ~ Love tripe...yum.
6. ~ Have to wear lipstick...or else I can't function.
7. ~ Love toe rings....have worn one for over 30 years.

I'm inviting anyone who would like to post 7 unusual/weird things about them self to do's really fun and not painful at all.

Have a great day, do something nice for yourself and enjoy.......Linda

Good Morning Linda,
I love the new look you have put on your blog. You did a great job. I love the runner you found. It is beautiful and looks good on your table. I also love the Green Depression plates your husband got you. I had an Aunt that used to collect the Pink Depression pieces. She had a whole lot of them. When she died back in 1980, my Mom got some of the pieces she had. I love all of your other finds you got as well. "THANK YOU" for sharing your Treasures with us. I sure enjoyed looking at them. I enjoyed reading your Meme. I did this one right before Christmas. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.

Linda I love your weird things list!

Re: Mimi's post; The nearest Mimi's is about 40 miles from home. We have to pass by, when we go to the doctor. We have an appt FEB 2 and you can bet we'll try to stop by for lunch! Love that place. We meet our family there for breakfast, every so often.


Rosemary said...

Love all of your great finds Linda!! What a nice husband to buy you a nice little present.
I have to say your list is a little weird, but interesting.
Have a great day!
p.s. I love fog too.

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

Hi Linda, what great finds you got. I love the doorstop. You guys have some great fleas in Cali. Wish I could go to them.

A Thing for Roses said...

I knew there was a reason I liked you. I too like the smells of gasoline and skunk. My family thinks I'm crazy. ha ha Love your sweet little flea market finds. Thanks for stopping by for a visit.



Jackie said...

I love your green plates. My favorite colour (after black) is green. Most of my house is done in shades of green, so restful.

Monica said...

oh sounds like a perfect sunday! Love all your treasures Linda.
I am cracking up over with the SKUNK thing...too funny :)

Nan said...

What great finds. I love the runner and I too love depression glass. I like the green and pink.
I don't function well w/o some makeup.

Deb said...

Hi Linda
I was just tagged to do this as well - I will do it tomorrow as it's my birthday :-} I really enjoyed reading your list and agree with you on #6 I HAVE to have my lipstick on too :-}
I love all your new found treasures!

Counting Your Blessings said...

I hit the flea this weekend too. Love the flea! You found great stuff. Blessings... Polly (p.s. I was going to say that I'm a lip stick girl too but I guess I'm more of a Burt's Bees girl)

Brenda said...

Looks like you got some great things. Love the plates also.

Pen Pen said...

Wow, you found some nice new treasures. How sweet of hubby to always be thinking of buying things for you! I'm with you on the lipstick... I have to have it. One time at work, a new girl didn't know my name when she was speaking of me to someone else. She said "you know, the girl who is always putting on lipstick!" LOL I didn't even realize I put it on that much!

Dee Dee said...

I like the new picture on your blog. I have to tell you last night, Allee looked at the old picture and said (in her sweet little two-year old voice) "Mommy, I go in there - it's snowing." Then she held her hands out toward the computer. Made my heart sing!

I love Green Depression glass, too.

violetlady said...

Great look, Linda! I like your "finds". I am starting to collect so much it's getting out of hand. Your 7 unusual things are unusual. Skunk? I remember kids eating paste in elementary school. They were fined for it! I, also, need to wear lipstick. Feel naked without it.

Jenn and Jacqui said...

Kelli said...

Your table runner is beautiful, what a wonderful find! I enjoyed your meme, I think everyone has at least tasted white glue, they just don't admit it..hehehee.


Mrs. Staggs said...

You have found some very nice things. I think about colors and holidays when I shop for vintage things too.
I have a few pieces of green depression glass that have been gifts from my parents. I really like it. Your new pieces are very pretty.

The Rose Room said...

Hi Linda, that x stitch runner is so gorgeous:) I love toe rings also, so much I had one permanantly tattoo-ed on my toe. It hurt a lot but worth it:) Rachael

Have a blessed day,
kari & kijsa

Adrienne said...

What great finds! The runner is so nice for Valentine's Day. I liked the hobnail piece. My grandmother had a pair of them on her dresser. It reminded me of her.

Thank you for stopping by my blog and for leaving your sweet anniversary greetings. We had a lovely dinner out together last night.

Hi Linda

You got yourself some sweet little treasures there and I love the green plates too. I have not gone treasure hunting for a few months but looking at your new finds is putting me in the mood to do so soon.
PS....I love the song Over the Tainbow that is playing on your blog.

Dona said...

So glad you stopped by. I have been trying to get that up and running for awhile. Each month will get better . Love your finds a whole lot. I like fog to. I think because you can get lost in it for just a moment and nothing else matters. Does that make sencse. Dona

Brenda said...
