Show and Tell Sunday, Favorite Flea Market Finds

Ok, This is what happens when you are half asleep, and need to do a photo shoot. LOL, You madly scramble to iron stuff, burn your finger. :( And then over expose a few blurry pictures of wrinkled stuff. lol !!

For Show and Tell Sunday, these are a few of my favorite flea market ~ Oh My Gosh I might kill someone if they get in the way of me and the checkout girl ~ things. :)
First, this PINK and AQUA vintage tablecloth. Oh My GOSH !!!

This aqua one was folded up right under the pink one, can you believe that ANYONE would get rid of these ???????????????????????????????? Um, HEEEEEELLLLLOOO !!! Come to Mama !!! :) :) :)
This little sweetie I have shared before, but gosh, she is the sweetest thing !!!



Love these sweet old Sunday School cards. One says " Come Play Sunday School " As a former Sunday School Teacher, and nursery director at church, these were dear to my heart.
I have been tagged, on a few different things, so I will address them next time. I really need to wake up some, before I start divulging facts, lol. That seems the wiser course. lol !!

I leave you with a little box I painted this week.


Hugs,

Rhea

It is hard to believe that someone actually gives beautiful old tablecloths like that away to thrift stores! I love the colors. The old sunday school cards are really precious.

Hi, Rhea! Oh my goodness! Those tablecloths are 2LIVE4!! First thing I did was go offsite to your etsy and ebay shops to see if they were for sale (as if any of the other 23 commenters wouldn't have gotten to them first, ha ha!), but I guess they really are stayin' with Mama.

Thank you so much for stopping by and for your lovely comments. Especially appreciated from someone who paints so beautifully! I'll be checking back often -- can't wait to see your finished craft room!
