My Flea Market Find

Wow. I cannot believe I have not posted for so long. I am so sorry and promise to get better with that! I wanted to share my flea market find with you.


I found this treasure two weeks ago at one of our local flea markets. It was opening week and there were only about 10 sellers but I managed to come home with this terrific find! I knew, the minute I saw it, I just had to have it and was in love, lol! I did a search on the internet and found out it is an antique oak wooden water keg with a bail handle.


It is all original, including the wooden red handle!





I cannot wait to get back there to find more treasures. It was snowing last Sunday so I could not go back and they are calling for rain this Sunday. Hopefully the weather will break and I will be able to go back soon!
