Me? Party Girl?

Blogging has turned me into a "Party Girl!" ... today I am participating in the "I'm a Flea Marketeer Party" hosted by Flea Market Style ... {WHEN is this new magazine coming out? anybody know??} ... well, today is all about SHOWING OFF ... show off your fabulous finds from flea market shopping, digging, hunting, and chasing down all of those treasures you unearthed and want to share with others who truly appreciate them ... and all of your hard effort put into finding them!! Sounds like fun, huh? Let's go .... here is my latest acquisition, a set of tole ware sconces in the most perfect vintage condition ... the paint has a well worn time enhanced patina, chippy and flaking ... the colors are in my favorite palette of faded pinks, greens and creams with that ever so pleasing touch 'o rust ... pure shabby elegance!



At the moment I am using them as part of my Jewelry display ... they are now dripping with necklaces made from even more found flea market treasures ... I have a client who wants to purchase my newly acquired sconces ... this is going to be tough ... I so do not want to part with them ... will I find another set I like as much? ... I'm undecided what to do ....

Thanks for taking a look ... I'm off to see what everyone else scooped up this weekend ...

    Ah, yes, the question. I've faced that one many times! If you hesitate, then keep them at least for awhile so you can enjoy them!

  8. What lovely, lovely sconces. I say you should keep them right where they are - you'll find another set for your client, but I think those were meant to be your's!
