Sweet Flea at Sweet Salvage

Hello my friends!! I hope you are all enjoying this most wonderful time of the year!!! 
I had to take a break from the Christmas chaos to go enjoy one of my favorite Sweet Salvage events... The Sweet Flea!!

I have a thing for old watering cans. I use them all over my garden! These two were fabulous with their long slender spouts.

One of the things that makes this event so special is the wonderful markdowns on many of the items and the fact that throughout the entire building there are little stickers on things that say... Take Me! I'm Free!!!! (I mean really... I've never seen that anywhere else. What a wonderful way for the folks at Sweet to say thank you to their ever growing fans!!)

This crown pediment would be awesome above a bed!!! Especially with a toile fabric like they have here.

 One of my personal favorite "rooms" this month. Calm and soothing to the eye, it is filled with all kinds of eye candy!

I love the old picture frames, and the paint job on the furniture pieces was really beautiful.

 If you are like me and a fan of silver anything.... there is more than enough of it at this show!!

Can't they just wrap it all up for me?????

 Another favorite of mine is brown or green transferware.

I swear the stuff just makes me giddy!!!

 Are you a fan of industrial letters?? They have few lying around!!!

Need some old spindles to wrap your lace stash on??? 

I have an architectural salvage fetish too. Fences, gates, shutters, corbels... I want it all!!!

This wrapping paper is so sweet. It has a pink tint and is covered with french ephemera.

Still looking for a gift for your favorite 4 legged friend?? I found the perfect thing!!! LOL!!

Mmmmmm...... linens. :)

 As always, they manage to find wonderful manni's !! Some day my studio will be bigger and I will room for some!!!

The clothes rack always looks divine. Most of the stuff is too small to fit on my large frame, but I love looking at it anyway!!

That's it for this month! If you have a chance, pop over and visit. I know they keep adding marked down items and freebies all weekend!!

The statue and mirrors are just gorgeous. Thanks for sharing, I can enjoy them at least in my dreams.
Happy holidays,
