Yesterday I visited a quarterly flea market called the Little French Flea Market. It is one of my favorite niche flea markets because they have all the pink and pretty stuff I love, and it is held in a park-like setting which makes it all the more special. At the last market, I forgot my camera (dang!) and then yesterday I had my camera, but it was raining hard. I can personally tell you when it rains in Southern California, it is sadly a cause of panic especially when it is the first rain of the season. So because of the rain a lot of the vendors were not completely set up, but just so happens my favorite vendor there was all ready for us.
Fran had her Easy Up sheltering her wonderful wares and she was happy for me to take photos. She had tons of these coffee filter roses and she was kind enough to tell me how to make them, so I will be sharing a tutorial this week, and check out her adorable clock ornaments. She actually took an old vintage clock and copied the face to do these. Aren't they fun?
I love to share my ideas and she loved to share hers too. I have been criticized at times for being so open about how I make my things, but just think where Martha Stewart would be if she hadn't been willing to share her secrets too! That woman built an empire, after all, and became a household name.
Fran had several of these little glittered bird houses for sale and a pretty glittered tree.
I love this canvas with the bee, and here is a close up of one of those beautiful roses.
I did end up purchasing this pretty lampshade. I couldn't resist it. Fran used it here as a tree topper.
One of the other things I like about Fran's space is that she always has fresh plants and flowers. I hope to be a vendor at this flea market next year, and as soon as I have the dates I will be posting them. I just wish I could have shared more with you, but I'm thankful that Fran loves to share her ideas as much as I do. Thanks so much for stopping by.
