Flea Market Finds


I decided to go junking at a local flea market on Sunday and found these few little treasures.  I loved these jars, at $3 each they were a steal and they say........made in Canada!


and white tulips are the perfect thing to pick you up on a snowy white 
day in February!


I also picked up these old school lockers for a coat closet.  We have no foyer, or mudroom or a front hall closet for that matter.  So, I thought why not try and find some old lockers, paint them up and well, bob's your uncle.........as the saying goes.  They were bright orange and black but I painted them off white to blend in.  I love the contrast to the number plates and they now hide all of our coats, hats, mitts, boots..........well, you get the picture.




Happy Tuesday! xo

I love little canning jars for vases...they are just too charming. Your tulips are beautiful!!

How neat to have found those lockers. I think Pottery Barn is selling them for a small fortune! Great find!

The vintage glass jars are a great find... They look lovely with the white tulips. Those tulips... first time I am seeing tulips of this colour :) They look lovely.. as pure as snow! Vintage translucent glass jars fit in apt as the flower holder.

Oh you are lucky to have found those beautiful jars and lockers. Only yesterday I decided to go to fleamarkets this year (which I always wanted to do but never picked myself up to). The markets in our town are not very good, you would never find something useful there, but there is a regular fleamarket (one of the biggest in Germany) in an adjacent town where I will go this year. Hope to be as lucky as you and find something nice ...
Bye,
Jule
