a day late

I am a day late here. Had labs to do yesterday. Fasting and all that and I ended up just running around all day. I just got home in time to whip up dinner and that was my day in a nutshell.

Some of you asked if I found any treasures at the Vintage flea market on Saturday. Books! Old books, school books, music books and books with French and German print. Great ephemera!

I found quite a few of this ladys books.
She had some shorthand books with the squiggly writing.

a very old book from the U.S. Army

But what did I really fall in love with?


Isn't it a great old rusty pedal car?! It spoke to me. I love old pedal cars. I thought ...what a great planter this would be...on the front porch. DH looked at me with that look. I don't know...the look like I had two heads or something. But it's OK. At $325.00 it was NO bargain and I walked on.....

Have a good Tuesday. I have to go take the Mustang for an oil change and other fun stuff....not!
