Look what I got!

Last Sunday my daughter and grandson and I went to Eugene to the Picadilly Flea Market! I just love going to things like this. You never know what you will find. I bought some crocheted pieces.
Some pretty jewelry. I only bought the inexpensive ones, as I use them in my art work and couldn't afford to use the really pretty ones. They had some beautiful ones. But I wouldn't be able to justify possibly tearing the expensive ones apart.

This is one of a pair of earrings. I love the colors and the pearls.

Very sparkly blue earrings. I had such a hard time taking pictures today. The wind was just blowing the clouds all over the place so my camera was constantly changing settings!

These are a pretty lavendar pair of earrings. I couldn't get these into focus.

I thought this was a pretty angel pin.

One of another pair of earrings. The emerald green in this pair of earrings was so pretty.

A nice sturdy necklace and bracelet for my soldered pieces.

I love these rhinestone earrings. The really had a sparkle to them.

A cool 25 cent doorbell plate.

Two awesome wallpaper books for a $1! Yippee!

Baby had to rub her scent on the books. I thought the hearts were cute on this wallpaper.

I love the reds in these books.

Cute chicken images.

I didn't show you all of the pages but you get the idea.

And this! I didn't get this at the flea market, my dear sweet hubby gave me this! I needed more storage in my craft room but I didn't want to have to buy another piece of furniture. DH has 3 of these so he said I could have this one! And it's clean!

All the drawers and compartments are lined. ;) Isn't that wonderful? I wish it wasn't red. I'm trying to keep the colors in my craft room cream and brown. But oh well, I can't really be choosy, can I? Maybe I will paint it this summer.
Now don't forget friends, tomorrow is the last day to sign up for my giveaway! I'm so excited to draw the names. Good luck to you all. I wish I could give everyone a gift. I've had so much fun meeting new blog friends. I will announce the winner Saturday morning, so stay tuned!
Have a wonderful weekend!

Hi Sonya,

Sending blessings your way,
