Flea Flicker

I can't believe it is already Friday. I took pictures on Sunday of all my flea finds and I stil haven't gotten them up here. Yikes. Too much to do and most of it work. No fun.

Sunday was the perfect day to wander the Elephant's Trunk Flea in New Milford , CT.

The trees were in full Autumn spectacular mode and the weather couldn't have been nicer.


There were tonss of vendors this week.



And of those PBS/HGTV/DIY network shows were there filming. I still don't know which one (I don't watch so I didn't recognize the people) but I will say that the hosts were kind of pushy and rude when they wanted to get by you but the camera people were very good at apologizing for them.


I bought one of the $5 mums shown above. It is gorgeous.


And who doesn't love a place where you can get mini donuts AND clam chowder. I'm having a bit of a love affair with Connecticut these days.

So what did I buy?


I'm loving this ram planter I snagged. I've been wanting to dig a few of the plants out of the garden to bring in doors. These are habanero peppers. Sorry it is so dark. I didn't think to take a picture until the early evening.


This hand made wool felt kitty was my favorite fnd. I just love her!


The details are great, especially these vintage millinery flowers on her ear.


Another dog portrait for my new collection. One more and I think I'll have enough to get them up on the wall. I also found something that will be a gift so no pictures until after the holidays and a cute hand made vintage ornament that is impossible to photograph well. It is a bottle brush tree inside a cloche and was an adorable $1 find.

We are thinking of heading back up on Sunday depending on the path of Frankenstorm. Sigh . . .

What did you find this week?

Tempus Fugit

Wow, where has the time gone? I am working on a few things (all of them gifts of course) but have no real progress to report. (why does that always happen??) So how about some new-to-me favorite must read blogs?

Tea Rose Home - Sachicko is sweet, funny and talented. Her sewing and jewelry projects are divine.

Crayons & Milk - this is a knitting blog with cute projects, an even cuter doggie sidekick and lots of laughs.

Pintester - she tests all those questionable or too good to be true pins. The language is very salty but the humour is divine.

Wild Olive - embroidery, cute projects and book reviews.

A Clockwork Lemon - fabulously fun recipes. Go see.

National Arts & Crafts Examiner Page - Ahem, this is me. I'm trying to write more and I'm working on my style. I share crafty ideas and tutorials and love to feature blogger projects. Contact me to be featured! (and please subscribe!)

And because what post is complete without a picture . . . .

Take time to stop and smell the flowers.
