Flea Market Find and a new Challenge

Good Evening ladies,

Now that I have more time to blog regularly I'm going to share my second favorite pass time so I'll save the challenge till last.  I thoroughly enjoy flea markets, consignment and yard sales.  Sooo I'm going to add a Flea Market Friday to my blog.  It will be everything from a "leave it as it is" or "repurpose it" or even a "I haven't figured it out yet".

 This lovely Boyd bear was found at a consignment shop  I go to regularly (Dress for Less) and was purchased for Nineteen dollars but they had a 40% off sale so I only paid eleven dollars.  I am too happy.  Is'nt he great? Other than wool fabrics, I keep most that I buy there. This is definitely not an exception.  The flowered pillows was from Vendors Village. Five dollars for the pair. The majority of my home is furnished and decorated this way and I am proud of my finds.  I found the bookcase last year and had it at the shop, just brought it home to see if it would fit like I wanted and it did. Hopefully really soon I'll show how I finished it.  Now looking for another rattan lamp. Hopefully really soon I'll show how I finished it.  I'm going for shabby chic in this room.  I'm working to finish the frame on top this week end and finishing a baby quilt.  Along with the bear meet Maggie Mae who was feral when I found her and seven kittens.  However she refuses to admit that now as she hold the title of the new queen.

Any good ideas for a name for the Bear?


I've made a new friend at Val's  Quilting  Studio.  She is having a different kind of a challenge for sewing folk .  I think it is a great idea. Check out this link for the information,  or click on the Challenge button on the side bar.

This is my bank I bought in Bardstown Ky. at a shop where I sell my quilts and bears etc. This was before I new of the challenge , destiny?   I'm hoping to put more adequate lighting over my sewing table.  Might as well reach for the stars.

Have a great weekend everyone.
