Flea Market Finds

I had a good weekend for finds but the best were these glasses ... can you believe I got six of the blue and seven of the green?


This kind of changes my colour scheme for the kitchen ... it's all blue and white/cream so far but I don't mind. I love blue and green together so I'm happy with the new direction.

I was so excited when I saw glasses as I rooted through all sorts of crockery in one of the old fashioned type op shops. The sort of op shops I hardly ever find any more.

I was even so lucky there were even half a dozen pink ones I left behind because the colour wasn't very nice.

Sophie Isobel at Her Library Adventures has links to lots more people playing Flea Market Finds ... and lots more fun flea market stuff to admire.

Love an old school oppy, those new fangled neat and tidy ones just aren't the same!

The blue will work well with your colors and the green fits because the pattern matches. So do a mix and match, alternating colors.

Ah they are really nice colours (Blue and green my favourite!)

I agree that the old school small and local church oppy's are usually the best! There is nothing like a good rummage in a small op shop rather than organised mainstream ones.

I always love blue and green together. I would have gone for them as well!

I really like these - and the green and blue do belong together, glad you got both sets!(mmm, another thing to add to my list of things I would love to find - retro glasses!)

Nothing beats a good rummage through a "proper" oppie! Love the glasses - makes me think of (and long for) the Summertime
