Flea Market Treasures and Two Special Tags

Last week I went to the local Sunday flea market. It's one of those places where you only need to go every couple of months as things don't change to much from week to week. It's not the best one around, but sometimes you can find some treasures.

I had a great time and picked up all sorts of goodies. A lot of cut glass bowls and serving plates that I will be using in my redecorated sewing/crafting/studio room. Those I will show when they are in their new home. Some sheet music and little ornaments to use in projects

I found some great poodles and as I was paying for them the sales lady asked if I collected dogs. I said no...I collect cats. She paused for only a moment before informing me she had lots of cat ornaments. As she was saying this I spotted two of the cutest cats on a shelf to my left and of course bought them too.

The two cute Kitties
Vintage cat Salt & Pepper

I found a glass terrarium for three dollars and thought I would make a fairy garden

Then I came across this beautiful Hat Form or Head and fell in love. Unfortunately this lovely lady was not for sale, but at least I got a picture of her.

I had asked one of my friends if she would make me a tag. Well this week I received two in the mail. Both of them are fabric tags one embroidered with a Siamese cat and the other with an Egyptian motif. The cat for my Siamese and the motif for our up coming trip to Egypt.
Thank you so much Tonia.

I'm looking forward to finding a creative way to display all the sweet tags I've collected so far.
