Last Sunday, I spent the morning strolling through the local vintage marketplace. It was a glorious day; and, I actually got there before the crowds. This particular event, the Topanga Vintage Marketplace, is held monthly. Begun only last spring, it has quickly become a popular venue. And at just $2 admission with free parking, you can't beat it.
This marketplace had everything--including the kitchen sink!

Many vintage items caught my eye that day, including these lovely objects:
|Vintage sifter & grater |
(which I totally scooped up!)
|Rusty metal bucket|
|Antique Ironing Board|
|Toddler seat planter?!|
|Vintage office rubber alphabet stamp sets|
|Antique Student Desk & Chair|
|Adorable planter box & window|
In addition to the vintage sifter, I brought home these lovely treasures:
I'm hosting Mah Jongg next week, so these rule books, circa 1958, and the vintage Bakelite tiles are going to be a big hit with my group.
Following my shopping trip, I stopped by the local nursery to check out some new spring flowers. These African daisies immediately caught my eye, and I knew exactly where I was going to plant them:
With a little potting soil and some Spanish moss, I now have a beautiful
new old centerpiece for our patio table.
Now what to do with the fabulous vintage blue Mason jars?
So excited that this project was a featured favorite on:
Come hang out with me at these parties!
