Flea market finds

A gorgeous sunny morning in Seattle and the aroma of fresh tea by my bedside. It really does not happen quite like that for me, but why not dream about it :-) I like pottery and my yellow tea cups brighten my day. The yellow tiled tray was a find at a flea market for just 5 dollars!! I loved it the minute I set my eyes on it. Flea markets are great places to find little knick knacks. Fancy stores have their own charm and style. Yet finding a little treasure in an unexpected place can be a lot of fun. I will share some more finds from flea markets in a subsequent post. Do drop me a line about the treasures that you may have found in unusual places..
Remember your style is your own, experiment, create and just be yourself.

Meenakshi, I agree the best part is that the husbands can't complain :-) I would love to see a picture of your frames and include it in my post about more flea market finds !!
