Flea Market Treasures

Here's the pictures of my big purchase at the flea market. It came out to $2.05. The plates were a dollar a piece. They are to go up on my border of old plates that I have in my entryway.

The other purchase was a pattern from Simplicity that is so sweet. It's called a brunch coat and house dress. I'll be very set for vintage attire if I can just get it to come out right. I am only a fledgling seamstress. But when it was only a nickel and in a size that will fit me, I couldn't pass it up.

The boys also came away with some prizes--bug necklaces from Peru. They're little scorpions and stink bugs encase in resin. I figured you could do without pictures of those.

Ready to sew! I just need a trip to Hobby Lobby for material.

After you make your dress, will you make one for me? I need a bridal shower gift and this would be perfect. Your sewing skills are excellent! I have to sign anon because that is all I have figured out how to do. Rebecca
