Happy Monday everyone!  I'm coming off a flea market rush weekend.  The winter months are always slow but the weather was perfect and the vendors were out.  I can tell from this point forward as the Spring approaches, the flea will get better and better.  So what did I see and what did I purchase?

On Friday with the girls, we saw:

cool rustic table top on glam brass hoof-footed base
(love the mix! it was sold by Sunday)

 clubby man chair (only $40.00; it was sold by Sunday)

cool vintage leather office chair (set of 2; sold by Sunday) and random pink elephant

tons of letters....I'm kind of over letters

these interesting black leather chairs (set of 6); hmmm...I know I'm looking for glam for my dining room but could these be a possibility and do a Ralph Lauren Men's Club/ Ryan Korban/ Diane Von Furstenberg upscale glamorous look?
$20.00 each!!  I offered $100 for all 6....SOLD!!  (approx. $16.00/chair....seriously!)

very cool vintage patio chairs

taxidermy?? me? it just me or is she kind of pretty?
this is something you would never expect to see in my house.....which is why I like the idea

mid-century fold down table perfect for a small space (Kathy purchased this set for her playroom)

Brazilian cowhide in Cheetah print - love, love, sexy is this
could these be paired with the black leather dining chairs to make a very sexy dining room
oh my, the wheels are turning

On Saturday, I returned with the family (kids and my parents):  I tell Mom I'm thinking about buying a deer head and she thinks I'm crazy.  Taxidermy (in very small doses) is in right?!  I explain, I want to use her at the bar as somewhat of a bar mascot that I can glam up with Ava's vintage costume jewelry collection.  From here on we just become our weird crazy selves and make up an entire story about the deer.....she is a doe trapped in a bucks body. She is a transvestite deer and her name is Bridget Bar-Doe (get it). Yes people, this is how our minds think, we are completely crazy.  Thank goodness my husband loves me.

The kids fall in love with Bridget Bar-Doe so of course she comes home with us.

So end of day Saturday, we have purchased a snow cone, hot dog, chicken wings, funnel cake, popcorn, cheetah print cow-hide and a transvestite deer name Bridget Bar-Doe.......oh just another great weekend at the flea!

 (on a side note, I had a really cute hip girl stop and ask me where I found the deer head and did they have anymore.....ha! seriously taxidermy is in!)

Later this week, sexy dining room update.


  1. Love the cheetah print! Can't wait to see your updated dining room!!
