Flea Market Finds

Over Easter weekend, I hit the one and only flea market/antique shop in the small town where I grew up.  They had some nice things, some expensive things and two little gems that came home with me. 

I love the Sunshine Biscuit tin even though it's not perfect.   The chippy paint and rust just add character, I'm thinking of maybe some thyme planted in it or a low growing succulent.

I also grabbed this cast iron finial.  It was just sitting on a shelf just waiting for me to take it home.  It's wonderfully rusty and goes nicely in the living room with some of the other rustic items.

  1. I love it when I find the unexpected...herbs will look fantastic planted in the tray and the finial is really interesting!

    Happy Saturday!


  2. Great finds - that box would make a perfect planter for herbs!
