My friend Nelson and I went to Santa Cruz on Saturday to hit the flea market and antique stores. The weather was perfect as we headed over the hill towards the ocean in Nelson's convertible. It's only about a 30 minute drive from my home. I found these dishes at an antique store at the end of the day. The lace runner ($3) was found at a garage sale that we just happened upon.
I found these plates at the end of the day and I couldn't be happier! The pink plate above and the blue plate below were $7.00 minus 10% discount. These will go in my bedroom on the wall. The blue one didn't photograph very well but it's beautiful! I love these hand-painted plates! They had more and now I wish I would have bought them too!
I found another mirror (only $5) to add to the stairway. This will be painted white soon. I also found this silver tray or maybe it's a plate charger for $4. Both of these came from the flea market. I had never been to this flea market before. It's held every weekend and I have a feeling I'm going to be going back soon!
Two rolls of ribbon, 40 yards each for $3 and an old silver plated sugar scuttle also $3
I took a vacation day today so I could finish up the table and chairs. I painted them yesterday so I hope I can sand them and distress them today!
