Every year over Memorial day weekend there is a flea market in the next state over. Lot's of fun. Lot's of vendors. Lot's of people, and...KETTLE KORN! We always start off with a tour of the flea market. Get a feel for what is out there. I've had in my mind for awhile that I wanted a old metal washtub. The kids had a fundraiser at school and I had bought some strawberries. Wouldn't they look so cute planted in one? Almost off the bat I saw the washtubs. I gave them a looky and then wandered to the next vender. A little while later we wandered by again and I decided now was the time to give them a real good look. They had a lot of square ones between $6 -$20. Then I spied this beauty. $18 dollars. I tried for $10 but she'd only take $15. Of course sometimes if theres love you just have to go for it. I planted the strawberries today. They do look pretty cute don't they? I love how it's different and round.
I had also spied this little wooden step ladder on the way in and I knew it would look perfect somewhere in my house. After we were all done and heading out we passed by it again. I glanced over but I didn't see it and figured someone else must have snapped up that treasure. Wait a minute...did I just see....YES! It was still there. I got this little cutie for $5 bucks. For now it's on top of my kitchen cupboards.
