My Sunday Finds!

I hope everyone had a great weekend and Monday! Sunday sure was a fun day for me! We went to the flea market then to lunch and stopped at Big Lots on the way home!  Glad to get home because it was so hot and humid!
Here’s what I found at the flea market!
A very nice sized mirror for $3.00, I didn’t even argue the price because I thought it was so worth it. I’m not even going to touch the frame of it with paint….love the silver! It’s also so heavy!
This black and white print was only $1.00 and in such great condition, I Googled it and it’s located in Maine and is a 5 Star inn, I’d love someday to visit there! I love black and white prints!
I put it here for now, when the cupboards are Cottage White I think it will even look better.
Playing with the settings on my camera:)
Here is the best find for me, a Big Ben Clock just like my mom had when I was a teenager, funny the things that stick in your mind! I was so thrilled to find one for only $4.00 and I have it on my desk with a frame of my kids when they were little although you can’t see the youngest. LOL
We took the back roads to the flea market and stopped at a yardsale and found these  two framed pears, she wanted 6, I said 4, she said 5 so I bought them as you can see they are brand new! I don’t have any plans for them as of now but figured when the cabinets are painted I maybe could use them!
Earlier in the week I had printed off a 20% off coupon for Big Lots, I had seen this lampshade and loved it and thank goodness I didn’t buy it then, it was $18.00! With my coupon it came to $14.50…big smile here! I had to change lamps because of the top fixture so brought the one  I had in the livingroom out here!
I love mixing styles…soon the window frame will be Cottage White!
In this picture you can see one of the two rugs I got too, on sale for $30.00 and with my coupon I got each for $24.50 and they are by Mohawk!
This sure is picture overlode I know but want to catch up on things I haven’t showed you!
Things from GW!
Cute wire basket for $1.99 love it with the lemons!

Not for now I know but couldn’t resist him for another $1.99!

He will look good in the hutch come Thanksgiving…..don’t want to even think of it!
So for now this is what sits on those plates!
One last yardsale find, it’s glass and thought for a $1.00 it would make a neat vase, Mr.K thinks it was part of a coffee pot but I like to think of it as a carafe.
Here’s where it sits now holding my faux peonies♥
I’m so glad I got caught up, hope you enjoyed it!
Linking up with these great party’s, thanks for hosting Ladies!!!
