Deja Vu At The Flea Market!
Mr. Old Glory and I went to the flea market on Sunday, and right away I spotted this old Lefton bluebird pitcher. And I knew I was about to experience a little deja vu. I asked the seller how much it was, and she immediately went into a tirade.
She said that she had paid $4 for it, but that I could have it for $2. She also said that she could have bought the salt and pepper shakers that went with it too, if not for a very nasty girl who stole them out from under her.
Remember these s&p shakers? The nasty girl was me! Do you remember the fight I got into over these? I can't believe it was the same lady, but luckily she didn't recognize me! And now I own the pitcher too. Was it karma? Or just dumb luck? I'm just really really glad she didn't recognize me!
We also went to The Covered Bridge Festival in Indiana. I didn't find very much, but we had a great time and the weather was beautiful. These two old planters made the ride home with us. The more I look at that scottie, the more it looks like it's wearing pink lipstick. Very troubling.....
This little robin with the crazy eyes was only a quarter, and also came home with us.
One other thing that we brought back was a rip-roaring case of indigestion. I DID say that we were going to eat our way through the festival, and we did just that. We had corn dogs and pumpkin rolls and bloomin' onions. Sadly, we had no room for a Pork Parfait.
And no Donut Burger passed our lips either! So, did you find some treasures last weekend? Or eat anything interesting?
