Flea Market Shopping

The assortment is amazing, whether it's a small operation or huge affair. This handsome piece at Sheffield Antique Mall was way out of my price range, but a smaller piece at Lucy Flea Market found a home in my backyard.


Book finds are always nice. So is reading outdoors.
(BTW, the bookmark was cut from a Huggies Baby Wipes container.)

Green vase and rabbit figure are also flea market finds with memories.

Recent Finds

I'm always looking for a "treasure" to add to my decor. It's hard to explain why certain items grab my attention. For instance, this rabbit is sorta ugly but also appealing. I liked his ears and the open book. 

The inkwell and feather were rust-colored so that explains why I chose them.

I can't decide what to put in the peacock frame with its many colors. I just like looking at it. I made two trips to Plantation Antiques before I gave in and brought it home. Of course, PA has a new owner and name. I have been once to Alison's Alcove, liked it, and will go back.

The pottery vase was found in Berea.

After being around so much art in Berea I felt inspired to get the paints out for a new creation.

Decided to use my iPad/recipe stand for a display easel.

I came across this wooden box at Marketplace. My plan is to put some small plants inside it. But for now I stuck another small flower painting in it.

When I returned from Berea, I had this surprise. After a year of ice cube watering a bloom!

Back from Berea

It was a short trip but worth it to have a change of scenery. The artist's cottage we stayed in was charming and comfortable. All the art inside the house was a treat to view and enjoy. 

The shops of Berea, Kentucky, are filled with artistic creations. The town's motto is Where Art's Alive. Berea is the folk arts and crafts capital of Kentucky.

Although I liked many of the handcrafted items, the best buys for me were in the two flea market buildings we visited. I found three small pottery pieces, a brass rabbit, a white planter with a bird, and a Christmas ornament.

After this getaway trip I feel inspired to do more art, achieve a little decorating, and test out a new recipe.

Painting is one of the most relaxing things I do. It keeps my mind occupied as I fill a blank canvas with color.

Garden blooms are also nice.

Familiar objects inside make me happy, too.

Corkey and I noted our 30th anniversary on June 8th. We enjoyed a quiet celebration, dining out at a local restaurant. So thankful to be together.

A Quick Hello

I'm sure you know another month has begun. I am behind. Sharing this art journal page so you'll know I'm still around.
