This morning hubs surprised me with an impromptu trip to the Long Beach Flea...

I was so delighted when I stumbled upon a surprise that my dear friend ROSE

was selling today, you see Rose and I have this connection and well the rest

is just bliss. Hubs bought me three of her incredible pillows

 "the girl has got skills I tell you....

pure bliss...

then since July is my birthday month I got

extra spoiling

ROSE makes these adorable bags and I

am the lucky girl indeed

won't I be a stylish gal sporting this around

these beauties were flying out the door

this week at COUNTRY ROADS

I picked up these old display cases at a yard sale

and decided to use them for end tables

sold me this amazing built in from his space

it was perfect to hold the treasures

Did you need my address to be able to send me the display cases? You know my birthday is August 9th, right? Well, just hang on to them for awhile. My man might surprise me by taking me to the Kane County Flea Market July 31st or Aug. 1st and I will buy my own. He can either take me there or it's girl gone wild at TJMaxx. His choice.

You are a lucky gal Kate. The pillows and the bag are just lovely and your sidetables look fabulous! xx

Look at you stylin' with your new bag at the flea! You look darling! That really is a cute bag! I love the pillows Rose made too!

What are those big old books? Old ledgers or something? They are so cool....and in such a large quantity, they look even better!

I wish we had a great flea like that around here. Twice a year, we have a big antique show, but I didn't get to go this year because it rained. :-(

Hope you have a great week Kate!

Great pictures Kate! Rose truly is an awesome person, isn't she? I love the purse!! The "books", they are everywhere lately. Actually "my boy Bryce" gave me three for my coffee table. But with my little ones, I decided to put them in a "safer" location!

Take care, Sue
