flea market finds and thieving husbands

i loved this pillow so much.  i saw it at the flea market where i got the booze bottles, and it had a small chewed up hole on one corner.  obviously someone’s dog thought it was charming too.  🙂  they sold it off for only a quarter, while the woman yelled at me that insulators are for receiving lightning so your house doesn’t burn up. OK!  i mean, she actually yelled at me.  i should have made her drop the price to a dime just for being rude.  but it was hot out, and her table was directly in the sun with no tent or awning, so i’m sure it was the heat that was making her bitchy…errr…enthusiastic.

i cut an Ikea shopping bag in two and made the halves into ‘purse pillows’ cause i thought they looked so cute together.  now she looks like a thoroughly distressed shopper who just missed the sale of the decade.  or discovered her husband left her and took her favorite Kate Spade purse on accident.

(by the by, the chair – though not well pictured – was also a steal.  found a set of them, old parlour chairs, at a Goodwill for only 6.00 each.  i plan to redo the fabric.  you can’t see how cute the shape is, but they are CHARMING!)
