Were getting ready to have a big flea market at the shop at the end of April, so my sister and I were out junking yesterday.. We found some cool things, but we have a lot of work to do to get them ready. The first few pictures I just took around the yard, it was such a beautiful day yesterday and the flowers are just so pretty. I think spring is finally here, thank god!!! :) Here's the web page to the shop http://www.scotlandyard-antiques.com/
I really liked these, there old car jacks.. My sister said, now what are you going to do with those, and I said... take the tray of a terracotta flower pot and turn it over and sit it on top of the jack and put a fern on top of it, or any pot of flowers, I just thought a fern, since the jack was red the contrast would look good. There are four of them so you could do a great display of flowers.. Any other ideas?
And I loved these old vintage panels we found that are in great condition.. I loved the colors in them, it would be great mixed with some blue and white check, along with some stripes, mix in some yellow. I think it would be beautiful in a bedroom.. The batteries were low in my camera and I really couldn't get great pictures, but theses panel have beautiful birds on them...
The thing to the left is a plate rack with a silver metal bottom, which I thought would love great with some old iron stone dishes in it?
I thought this was really cool, the thing to the right is what you bake bread in. I thought it would be pretty to sit on a breakfast table with either lemons, oranges or apples? Can you think of other uses for it?
I love the silver tray and all the beautiful detailing around it, it has been monogrammed in the center...
We found two of these chairs which I thought would look great painted black and recover them in burlap and stencil the seat. I love the detailing at the top of the chair. Were going to paint that coat rack, white or black?? That's Mabel chasing bees, I don't know what she's going to do when she catches one.. :)
