Flea Market Fun

Thank you for all the good wishes.  I'm healing and doing really well.   I should be back to normal soon!

Before the gallbladder/pancreatitis attack I went to the Flea Market and today I'm sharing my few finds!
This adorable vintage print caught my eye and it reminds me of Scout so for $2 I brought it home!

This pretty milk glass vase is a gift for one of my friends so I'm not telling you the price, but she knows I'm a bargain hunter!
The white planter was marked .25 so I bought it and the lady asked if I like the green one and when I said yes, she gave it to me!  Now that is a score!
She also gave me this plastic egg carrier and all these little containers that will fit in the box also.  Great for crafting.  It was getting near noon and I think she was trying to get rid of stuff even if she just gave it away!
I paid $1 for this little ceramic elf and I love him.  He does need a good bath though.  I also bought a few plants but the deer found them yummy also and ate them after being planted in my front yard!

The Grands went to the mountains for the 4th of July weekend and here are some photos!  I love these two so much!
Tiger painting! He did lots of hiking and other fun stuff and even got a chance to use his new kayak!
Scout had a great time exploring!
and playing with Boomer
(Blake's Grandmother's dog)

My friend Carter was here for a few days to visit and help me out while the kids were in the mountains. We had a nice visit and Mr. Toes is back here now!

Wishing you Joy!

Linda
