Scoring at the flea market!

Sometimes things just fall into scoring big time at the flea market when you least expect it!!!
It was a beautiful day here in the mountains so off to the flea market with my sister.  We weren't really looking for anything in particular and then we happened upon this rusty, crusty, with just the right patina wash tub.  We both said at the same time...."this is perfect for our burlap pillows, wreaths and stockings!"

We had previously scored the old barn door and just knew it was the perfect backdrop for the tub.

A match made in heaven....don't ya think?

Tell me about your big weekend finds, I'd love to know.

In the meantime get out there this week and create, make, sew, craft, photograph, write, repurpose and find something wonderful and share it with us

I'm joining the fun at Coastal Charm's Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays!

Your new tub is great Sissie! I'm smiling here trying to guess what the "please make my..." pillow says:@)

Oh Sissie, I love it! I love the door too, and the mirror hanging on it is beautiful! I'll say it again, I wish I could shop there! Thank you so much for coming by for a visit. I'm always happy to hear from you. Have a fantastic week!

What a great match! I really wish I still had mine..sold it at a garage sale a few years ago:( Hope to see at NTT this week. I didn't find anything this weekend...still painting and creating things that I already have.

Cindy said...

That's just perfect for your adorable pillows, and i love the old door too. I have an old door and it's one of my favorite things in my house. It sounds so fun to be able to grab your sister and go shopping and treasure hunting, it just ain't the same going with a guy!


Ivy and Elephants said...

Oh, it just looks amazing! The burlap looks like perfection. What great finds.
Patti said...

Love that tub! It really is perfect for your great pillows. I have been repurposing all week. Just finished making a sign for the outside of our shop out of a bed headboard! Can't wait to have it hung and post about it. So much to do, never enough time;)
