more finds from the flea...

I have some more finds from the flea market to share with you today.
Just as Jim and I got out of the car I saw a woman walking away with an old white shutter with a fleur-de-lis cut out.
My heart sank.
It did not occur to me at that moment that shutters come in pairs...
Can you believe she only bought one...
This was actually my last purchase of the day ~ I was a lucky girl!


I also found this great old white frame...



Now,
are
you
ready
for
my
favorite
finds?


Take a peek through the fleur-de-lis...

These two ladies were in the bottom of a box...

Just waiting for me! 
They are pieces from vintage lamps by Munzerlite.
Aren't they lovely...

Don't you think they look french...

I am going to enjoy them for a while in my studio.
They will needs names ~ french names, of course.
I hope Vivienne doesn't get jealous.

It was a great day at the flea market.
I think the junking angel was on my shoulder...

Pretty fabulous right?!!

Well thanks for visiting today and peeking at the rest of my finds from the flea.
I am sharing them with Faded Charm for White Wednesday and The French Cupboard for French Inspiration Thursday.

Au Revoir!

I'd say the Junking Angel was on your shoulder-either that or the Purchase It Devil!;>) I have a hard time telling those two apart sometimes!

Can you IMAGINE only purchasing ONE shutter-when there was a pair of them...unless, of course, they were exorbiantly priced.

Have a great night-Diana

Fabulous finds Sandi! Your heart must have sang when you found that other shutter. I know that feeling all too well...you see it (and you hope no one else does) as you move as fast as your feet will take you to snatch it up. Are you keeping her, or adding her to the shop?
