Stopped at an Antique Fleamarket

Over the Memorial Day Weekend we headed up the mountains to our friends camp and on the way
we stopped at a antique fleamarket all out in the open and the weather was wonderful, sunny and
not to hot…just right!
I found this cute little metal box all chippy and rusty, I put it on the shelf and I think I’m going to
keep it there…minus the price tag of course.

Here’s the top of it, I have no idea what it was used for, I was surprised it was still there!

From the same man I found this tool carrier, it needs painted, I bought a Folk Art Paint
called Robin Eggs Blue but do you think I can find it? I hate when I put something
somewhere and then can’t remember where.
I just bought some pink impatients for it at Walmart, I think it will look so neat
with the blue…if I can find it!

My favorite was this basket but when I saw it I thought it would be
at least $35.00 so I looked it over but no price on it. I’m like well
it’s probably more than $35.00, I asked the old man how much and
he said $20.00 but I’ll let it go for $15.00…ok says me.LOL He also
told me that it was used to carry bread.

I like it better though with faux Hydrangea’s!

Right now it’s on my table in the diningroom but I was thinking of on top of the
fridge.

Here is my Clematis every year it never disappoints, it blooms in the spring
and that’s it so I wanted a picture of it before the flowers fade. We are so
behind in doing are back yard and opening our pool, living in the woods has
it’s pros and cons. Right now we have bag (tent) worms so bad, we have never
seen them so bad as this year, they are all over the back of our house and on
everything out there. My hubs has used a pressure washer but we don’t know
if they will come back. Oh, well:0
