I talked my family into going to The Big Flea with me this past weekend to search for vintage treasures. The youngest member of the family wasn't quite convinced that it was how she wanted to spend her Saturday afternoon, so we came up with a scavenger hunt for her. "Find a doll from Nana's childhood", "Find a diamond ring", "Find Christmas ornaments". That kept her busy for awhile while we checked out the booths.
Glenn found some cool things for the basement rec room/media room/man cave/whatever you want to call it. He is going to arrange the film reels & drive in speaker in a bookcase along with the DVDs -- fun, right? He thought of it himself too -- he gets some good decorating ideas every once in awhile ;)
I found the candy mold, which I've been looking for at a price I can afford. This one is just the right age & at $12 was quite a good deal! Right after that, I found the candy sales punch card. It was used for some kind of promotion regarding candy sales which I can't quite figure out, but what really makes me love it is the graphic design. I'm deciding whether I should mat & frame it or put it in the cabinet of vintage kitchen things. Last but not least is the small translucent blue bell shaped Christmas ornament (in the center front of the picture). It is simple & pretty.
The Big Flea was my one bit of free time over the weekend. Its all about the last push of library school right now. I'm doing a practicum, taking a class, applying to jobs and studying for comprehensive exams. I apologize if I've said all of this before -- its pretty much all that I do! I hope that you all are doing well.
