Spring Saturdays

Seven Acres Flea Market
Such a beautiful day here in the south although the wind is kinda high.  Mowers are busy, yard sales are plenty, spring is finally starting to show up around here.  I slept in a little late this morning and then drug myself out of bed and hit some of my favorite local spots.  Seven Acres Flea Market had plenty of rusty treasures to choose from but I didn't go home with anything. 

My husband called to meet me for lunch once he got in from work and we hit this dive.  Believe me when I say this place is a local favorite.  They make the best BLT in town!  If you didn't know about it and you were new to town, you'd probably just drive on by.  But if you stop and they slide the window and take your name and your'll be glad you did.

            I had a late breakfast so I just ordered the onion rings and saved the BLT for another time.

Ken, however, landed this HUGE burger.  Delicious! They EVEN toast the bun!!!
Later we went to Amazing Things.  It's a flea market owned by a sweet couple (Greg and Patricia) here in Paragould.  I love this place.  Any time you visit there is gospel music playing softly in the background.  Not open on Sundays or Mondays but open until 6:00 through the week.
These plaid thermos' have been catching my eye lately.  I scored one for $3 a couple of weeks ago.  By the way, while I was taking this photo I backed into a small picture on an easel and broke it!  Cost me $5.  My husband later pointed out a sign that said "I break I buy, you break you cry."  Of course I had already paid for the one I broke and he was just rubbing it in with a smirky smile. 
Beautiful display of blue crockery.  I have a thing for cobalt blue anything!
These old bottles are fabulous.  I have my own collections sitting in the shed, waiting to be cleaned up....sigh.
Beautiful would be great in a shabby chic designed home.  Love the nail head detail.
I can also envision it in a modern print upholstery as well...bold geometric shapes that would modernize it a bit.
This chalkboard is SWEET. As a matter of fact this whole booth is usually a wonderful mixture of unique vintage finds.
The only thing I went home with today were these linens.  2 quilted pillow shams and a vintage tablecloth.  I bought them at a yard sale 1 block behind my street.  $4 bucks total.  Big spender.  I ADORE them and I think they are going in my camper. Where everything goes lately.................................................
Now this is what we are doing...........
Have a great weekend everyone!
