They're back!!

Some of you live in locations with mild weather and you enjoy flea markets year round. Not so here in Ohio. Our little flea-loving hearts shrivel up in November but come to life and swell again in April.....the start of the flea market season. These are the few things I picked up so far.
Isn't this the most gorgeous book? I didn't even look to see the contents of the book before I bought it. With that cover , it could have been anything and I still would have bought it. 

As it turns out, it's a book of poetry, even better. 
This tablecloth is perfect for summer and made me think of the card parties my parent's had as it is one of those squares that perfectly fits a card table. 
This is a book of music published here in Ohio in 1905. Inside the cover was a stamp from the high school I went to. I hadn't even noticed that when I bought it. Hubby showed it to me later. 

And sheet music.....what can I say about gorgeous graphics on sheet music!?
Everyday items made so beautiful with art.
Mondays and possible Saturdays are my flea market days so don't even look for me then.  I'll be gone for the season.

There's nothing better than getting up really early on Saturday mornings and hittin the yard sales.
I love all your finds. I would have bought that book too and the graphics on the sheet music are just plain yummy.

I SO wish we had a wonderful flea market season where we are...not so fortunate! But I love "junking" with my friend on weekends at local sales at homes...usually something fun to be found!

What lovely treasures you found this weekend--good luck on all your future hunting!
