This post is from last Sunday. We went to the Kane County Flea Market. The first thing I spotted was this little Fisher Price TV. It's dated 1962. My kids played with one that played Row Row Row Your Boat and London Bridges. After all these years the music box still plays and the story still rolls past on the screen. They just don't make toys like this any more! I had to have this Winnie the Pooh TV for our little bird. Can't tell you how many times we watched Pooh get stuck in Rabbit's house, and she loves it every time.
Willy, nilly, silly Old Bear...
The Perfect Pear. These girls are so sweet, and have the coolest stuff. I admired this rug at their booth in Woodstock at the Colonial Antique Mall, and they had it marked down at Kane. It came home with me. I might use it on my table, it's too pretty to walk on.
2 Chicks and a Fancy Owl. Urban Farmgirl, featured this bowl on her blog. Bought one for my daughter Kristen who knits, and my hubby insisted that I have one too. I wish I was still in my pottery phase, (I've had three, recently with my husband...and I just found the box of the things we made while cleaning my closet!) I'd be making some myself... These girls are bringing back ceramics! All of their lovely stuff was in a clear glaze which made all the items look modern and fresh. That's an easy shawl I'm making, with a pattern from my friend Jean. Don't you love the color of the yarn?
The Tattered Gardener. This talented lady makes things that I drool over. Clever and ingenious use of old stuff for the garden, all with her signature font and sweet sayings. I asked to take a photo of some of her great stuff, but she preferred that I didn't, so I took her photo! This is the second show I saw her at, and I couldn't leave without a little something.
I'm not caught up with the week, more photos soon of the work going on in our back yard. I've had this song in my head while I wrote this post...Joni Mitchell...
And the seasons they go round and round
And the painted ponies go up and down
We're captive on the carousel of time
We can't return we can only look
Behind from where we came
And go round and round and round
In the circle game...
PS...In case you didn't know, there is ALWAYS a song in my head, how about you?
