Wednesdays Wonders

This is just a blend of many things that I have been wanting to post lately but haven't got a chance to do. First off, I want to show off a few treasures that I bought a few weeks ago at my favorite Flea market/ Antique store. Its called "Yesterday's treasures". Its a hugh old building here in my town and it has many booths of wonderful goodies in it. People rent the booths and sell their treasures in it. Most of the items are very reasonably priced too. I was lucky on the saturday that I went because several of the booths has sales in them.
The first booth I came to the owner was there and she was marking down every thing as she was going to stop selling because she was moving. Well, she had the prettiest Antique fans hanging on the wall that I just oohed and ahhed over. She told me I could have all 3 of them for a $1 a piece. So here they are!

The fans were in remarkable condition too. Right now they are in my Art room but when I re-do my bedroom they will go in there. Notice the beautiful lace that the fans are laying on? Its a gorgeous square table cloth and she sold me that for just $3. She also had a beautiful old ceramic planter with 3 geese on it, I got it for $1.50, but didn't take a picture of it as I want to plant some hen and chicks or some ivy in it.
Next booth I found this old green glass bottle. I love green glass anything and I got this for $1 too.

It kind of reminds me of the Dream of Jeanie bottle. If only she would pop out and grant all my wishes, ha! I also found a very cool Flamingo Avon bottle too, again another $1.
I think I want to put some pretty pink colored water in it. I got a big jar full of old buttons too for $1.50 and several pieces of old jewelry very cheap that I can use in my art and in jewelry designs. Next time I will take a picture of the store itself as its just chock full of goodies.
Ok, the next picture is of my little Owl that I made recently. I got the pattern from my blogger bud, Lollychops. If you haven't been to her blog, well you don't know what your missing. She has so many templates and designs and ideas that she freely gives to every one to download. She dabbles in everything from sewing to jewelry making to cardmaking and on and on. Stop by and visit her. So the little owl is named Danny, after my hub. He loves Owls so he was a Valentine present for him. He sits on his computer down the his Man cave in the basement.

I think he is so handsome even if he does have a little femine side with his flower hat. And Hub is pretty attached to him.
Next, but definetly not last, are some cute pictures of my Great Nephew, Samuel. He is now 4 weeks old and I think he is the cutest baby in the world, but I am a little biased! Enjoy!

And look at the bottom left side of the next picture and see his little buddy, Maggie the Boydkin Spaniel.
Thanks for letting me share some of my Wonders on this Wednesday night! Hope every one has been having a great week!

Love the fans! You sure hit the jackpot with all those goodies. We have a place like that here but the prices are NOT that good!!

Samuel is adorable!

Jeanie said...

Wow -- those finds are totally fabulous. I have a soft spot in my heart for fans -- those are exquisite. And that one bottle made me think you should make it into a melting snow person!

Your owl -- adorable. I don't sew, but if I did, I'd grab that pattern in a minute. And Samuel is the cutest ever. Is there an owl in his future too?

Ok, the baby is the cutest of your pics today, for sure! Love the one of his toes all curled up!

The owl is pretty handsome himself. I've check out her blog and it is really cool! I want to try some of these small stuffed animals. Did you see the new Somerset publication with these(can't remember the name of it now). There were several in there I want to try, especially for the new grandbaby. Now, I catch myself looking at clothes at the thrift store just for the fabric.

Great finds at the antique store. I want to come up there and go shopping with you sometimes.
