Its Flea Market time again!

I was so happy to wake up yesterday to a nice weather day....  it meant we could head south to our favorite Flea Market in Leesport.  It was still cool when we first got there but the sun was fully out and as the morning wore on it got warmer and more pleasant.

There were lots of dealers and lots of thing to buy for my antique shop.  I did buy quite a bit but didn't take any pictures.  Didn't buy any plants or veggies today.  It isn't quite time yet.

It was a good day to do a lot of looking too.

I started by visiting the buildings that feature food and newer things.  I was a good girl and only bought some coffee.

But was really tempted by the baked goods.  Refrained though... aren't I good.

I looked at some of the items available in the "butcher" section.
I hope I don't offend anyone but I have to say these three foods will NEVER be part of a menu at my house.
I don't know if you can read it but it includes Tongue Souse,  Pig Feet Souse and Ham Hocks. Not my type of food.

Since it is an agricultural market as well I always visit the goats.  This one was quite friendly.
 And then I took some pictures of things that are interesting ideas for craft projects.
We won't be able to get to this flea market again for a few weeks.  Should be able to buy lots of veggies and maybe some plants?  Can hardly wait!

Tea Cup Tuesday, First Tuesday in March

Spring is coming soon!!!!   I am back at Tea Cup Tuesday.  And for this month I am going to share my Pansy teacups and other items.  Pansies have always been my favorite flowers.  I have a great collection of Pansy postcards, other pansy paper items and Tea Things which I will be sharing here for a while.

After you visit my post today be sure to check out  these other blogs

 Todays teacup is a  Elizabethan Bone China one from England.  The little sugar and creamer are from Japan. AND the book I am showing is a really neat one.  It is a wonderfully illustrated book of tea party ideas for Children..  It is written by Lucille Recht Penner and illustrated by Jody Wheeler.  It includes menus, recipes, decorations and favors to make. Great for children but fun for adults too.

This teacup is one of my favorite Pansy Tea Cups by Elizabethan China.

And this sweet little Sugar and Creamer set is so dainty.  It was hard to resist when I found it.

Be sure to come by next week for another Pansy set.  I have already taken the pictures!
