Flea Market Finds

Treasure hunting this week was a lot of fun and I came home with some gems. 
My favorite find this week is the book, Vintage Aircraft Nose Art: Ready For Duty
Most of you know that I love pin up girl art.
They remind me of my Daddy.
He loved pretty pin up girls.

He also told me that I looked best with bangs and I should always wear a little bit of red.

I found these vintage button collections. 
The jars are old Alka Seltzer bottles.

I love old vintage buttons. 
I'm only collecting the ones from my Grandma and Grandmother now so these will be going into our shop.

These outhouse salt and pepper shakers made me giggle.
My family has a thing for potty humor.

I like to pick up tins for gift giving.  This strawberry one is precious. 

I have been busy all weekend working on my office/art/guestroom.
Daniel took me to IKEA in Atlanta to get some bookshelves for our Friday night date. 
We also found some shelves and bins for my Etsy shop closet at yard sales on Saturday morning.   
I can't wait to show you what I have been up to. 

I hope you have had a lovely weekend. 

love love,
Fritzi Marie

My mom told me as a little girl that every girl needs a pair of red shoes. I've always remembered that.

I can't wait to see what you do with your space. :) I'm sure it will be fabulous.
