Flea Market Finds

Well, the website is still down (Grrrrr...) so, I am not a happy camper.
My mom knows how anxious I get over this type of thing, so she suggested an improptu flea market outing. It was a beautiful day Sunday and we made it to just the tail end of the Lawrenceburg Antique market. Its a pretty large show, but we made the rounds in about 2 hours. Here's what I got: 3 pretty feedsacks,3 yards of vintage border print fabric,
Peach floral barkcloth drape panels (all 4 panels for 30.00!!!) ,
And my favorite, a children's counting book from 1942. Look at these adorable graphics!

Hope everyone else had a great weekend! :)

That vintage border print fabric is absolutely the sweetest! And that book's illustrations are really great.

Be sure to show us the projects you sew up with all of the great fabric you've got in the past week! :)

Hello Kimberly

What pretty fabrics! I really like the one with the roses.

I hope that you don't mind, but I tagged you for 7 weird things about me...see my blog for more information.

All pretty finds, but those peach drapery panels are beautiful, and I love that bluebird page (8) of the counting book!

Hi Kim,

Just stopping by to say hello and to welcome you to the blog world (isn't it fun?). Love your fabric finds, and those bluebirds in the book—beautiful!

And thanks for your kind words about Stitch School. Embroidery only looks complicated—really, anyone can do it :)

Oh, I love the fabrics and the children's books- my favorite illustration is the one with the bluebirds- soooo sweet! You have lovely taste and do you ever make me long for a good flea market! Wonder where I can find one in the Atlanta vicinity???

Everything you pioked up is so cute. I love all of it.
Sometimes you get better deals at the end of a flea market.
Have a great day!

Yes, the blue bird page is my favorite too.

~becca~bluebird rose, I thought it would probably be your pick. :)
I wish I had a scanner so I could send you a copy.

Oh I hope you have your website trouble fixed by now! That must be so frustrating. I just love all of your fabrics! So pretty! And that book with those cute little bluebirds!

Hi Heather,
We just have a temporary fix for the website problems.
We are the latest victims of the Registerfly mess (scam). We may be joining the class action lawsuit against them, but not sure I want the hassle.
For the time being, the website is viewable under the web-address of www.nieszvintagefabric2.com .

Sooo frustrating! :(
