Fun at the Flea

This sweet old quilt was purchased for my mom. I thought it was made of feedsack fabric but she said no, just really old cotton. It is in great shape, she will just do a couple of things to it and she will have a "new" old quilt.
Some tea towels to dress up for my etsy, a child's reader and a cute bunny doo-dad.

Buttons! Oh my! I love me some buttons!

An adorable childs apron made from 2 vintage hankies....soon to come to my etsy...
And then I had to throw this picture in!
This little rascal curled up in my closet, I closed the door and she didn't even care, she was cozy. (Please no comments on the messiness...I choose to think it is a wonderful grouping of colors!)
Have a happy end to your weekend and a great start to your week! karen.....

Hi Rita...thank you for the visit & the's so nice to meet you!

You got some great goodies! LOVE the cameo buttons & I have an adult apron made out of vintage hankies, much like your children's one.

Your swaps look like they were so much fun. I had too many going at once so didn't get in on either the petite box or the Easter basket but I wish I could have. said...

Is that a dotted Swiss skirt on that tiny ballerina? So cute!

Hi Rita,

I woke up this morning and my fever is down a bit, so I thought I would post some pictures of the P&P Art Event. Drop by and take a peak some time.
