Flea Market Find & New Ebay Listing

Sorry I was not around to wish everyone a Happy Easter. I hope you all had a wonderful Easter!!!

I had so much going on....last Thursday, I got laid off from my job!!!! I knew things were slowing down but I did not see that one coming...just figures, right before a holiday! They may have an opening in a couple of months for a different position...so I will have to see what happens and keep my eyes open for a new job. Until then, I will have more time to do what I love....CREATE!!

Saturday we had our Easter dinner and we had all of our nieces and nephews and their significant others over...we had a blast and dinner turned out great. We all ate way too much.

Sunday morning we headed off to the flea market....yes, they were open! There were a few more sellers than last time but still not packed like usual. Hopefully with the warmer weather things will pick up! I managed to find this little treasure. It is a vintage chicken feeder with an antique barrel shaped pickle jar. I can bet you all can guess what I plan to do with it, right?



I know with the warmer weather just around the corner I love to decorate my front and back porch with primitive flea market finds and such so it got me thinking...... and I have come up with a new Primitive Porch Series. I used to dabble in making wooden items and thought about making some primitive wooden items to decorate your porches with. My first Primitive Porch creation is based on a TFC Folk art doll and is listed on Ebay along with my Americana black cat doll. Click here to view my auctions
Here is a sneak peak of her.



She is a one of a kind! I have a few other items to add to my series and can't wait to share them with you!

I just came across your site today and I'm glad that I did! So sorry to hear that you lost your job - hopefully the other position will become available soon. But, you're right, it will give you more time to be crafty! Love your flea market finds!

Hey Lottie! I love your primtive porch creation ~ how cool!!! And I WISH I had that chicken feeder, lol! I have one that three of my younger chickens still use but not as nice as yours!!!!
Sorry about your being laid-off, I guess it's par for the course these days.....I've been laid-off now for a year. It's a huge shock at first but to tell you the truth, I've gotten used to it, LOL!!!
