soups on

i saw this poster in a magazine or on a blog, 
i can't remember exactly where.
but after i saw it, i was on a mission to find one.
it took a long time to find.
and when i found one, it took a long time before it arrived.
it's a long story.......

glad i found it though.
it's working out for the "gallery wall" above the kitchen cupboards.
sorry for the bad photo.
will retake when the store is stocked : )

elkhorn - flukes, coincidences, chances

went to the first elkhorn flea market of the season last sunday.
beautiful day and lots of strange coincidences, flukes, chances. 

first up - best parking spot ever! didn't get there until 9:30 
elkhorn opens at 7.
the line to the entrance was long and once you enter you wind around the fairgrounds and you never know where you will end up, hit the jackpot this time.
second - out of the 1,000's of people at the market what are the chance that you run into someone you know, i ran into my friend denise and her mother. 
and then very similar just walking down a aisle, jan from gracies cottage was walking by to her car and 
hollered hi as she passed by.
thirdly - i saw a couple walking by at the flea market that i had talked to in passing at the columbus antique mall the day before. 
columbus is about 60 miles north of elkhorn.

what are the chances........

below are a few treasures i saw, signs as usual seem to be a theme.

thought michael's and vicki's cart was cute 
with all the mini license plates.

you could even buy a soda fountain - in my dreams.

spotted this in another booth and this would have been perfect to go with the soda fountain of my dreams.
if money was no object it would have come home with me.

and we end with another sign.
what are the chances : )

we're cookin' now

or maybe not.

found this beaut at the columbus antique mall.
a new, never used buddy L grill.
i think it's from the 60's, early 70's.
i don't think brats or burgers will ever hit this grill.
hope to keep it nice,
maybe use it for a potted geranium.
more good things about columbus to come.

gypsy luck

this is from the item below, sorry for the image below
it is pretty icky. 
(but doesn't she look like lucy, when she
played queen of the gypsies in "the operetta"?)

am i right?

so i dusted off my sewing machine 
and attempted to bring this gypsie kart back.

 and here is the progress so far.

 the holder for hangers 
is what sold
i picked it up at a garage sale 
last weekend.

now it makes me
