~Crafting and A Trip to the Flea Market~

I’ve been so busy…

I made a Fall table runner for my mother…have an embroidery job for a local jewelry store that I need to finish up putting their logo on some shirts…and I’ve been crocheting more ruffled scarves to replace that ones that I sold at my last show.

But I took a break today and went to the Flea Market Extravaganza here in town out at the fairgrounds. They do this show twice a year…in the Spring and then again in the Fall. My favorite part of this show is the Vintage Market Place…

I loved this dress form and the necklaces that were on it…might just have to decorate my dress form with some necklaces like this one.

Also loved the white pumpkin that is sitting on this white cupboard…it was made out of a white chenille bedspread. I have some white chenille that a blogging friend gave me, so I know that I will be making me one of these pumpkins and I think that I might have to put some bling on mine.

There was a lot of Fall goodies at the show and the weather was great…it was in the upper 60’s to the low 70’s with a cool breeze and it felt like a perfect Fall day.

I only purchased a couple of little things…

I couldn’t pass up this little aqua pumpkin…just love it!!

It was made out of a Jello mold…it’s stem is a sewing spool and it also has buttons, paper flowers and a leaf on it. I have it displayed with a ticking pumpkin that I got last year at a show that I did.

The only other think I purchased was a bag of old buttons to use in making my Vintage Style Necklaces. Can’t wait to use some of them.

Well…I’m off to get some rest…the flea market was huge this year, so we did a lot of walking and my feet and legs are really not liking me right now. All the walking has flared up my restless leg syndrome…so I have a feeling that it might be a long time, plus it looks like we have a thunderstorm heading our way too.

Until next time…….          blessings, Cindy

    Sounds like a fun day! I love going to outdoor flea markets like that. Now is the season for a lot of them too. Love the cute little aqua pumpkin you bought. I think making a white chenille fabric one would look sweet too! Good thing you can sew. You probably get so many ideas when you go shopping.

    Hi Cindy, looks like you had a fun fall day at the market. Love your pics. Your scarf is gorgeous and I love that color. I made many of those for gifts the last few years. I also just love the mold tin pumpkin you got and had an idea for those since I have so many tins. I did finish a few sweater pumpkins today and had so much fun. Have another great show and fun creating and getting ready. I know you are busy but glad you had some time to get out to the market too.
    Hugs

    Cindy, I saw a white chenille pumping the other day and loved it as well. I have had my eyes for a chenille spread for a long time, but no luck yet. The jello mold pumpkin is so unique.
    hugs,
    Jann

    Love the look of your scarf that you’re making. I’ve been to that flea market once (or twice?) and it is huge so I can imagine you needing some rest. But it does have a lot of eye candy for sure.
    Farmhouse hugs,
    Cindy

    This is my idea of a fun day. Eye candy everywhere and good weather to make it all enjoyable.

    Looks like a great day of pickin’. I could have made a day of it, that’s for sure! It’s been awhile since I’ve had one of these days. I’m long overdue!

  • must love junk

    Love that show, even though I haven’t been in awhile! Your ruffled scarves are so pretty! Great finds 🙂
