canton flea market {what i got.}

if these words make your heart beat faster...
then you might want to sit down for this.

{my favorite piece from the whole market.}

my dad is probably shaking his head and asking...
did she really pay money for that?
it needed a new back, but i had leftover beadboard sitting in the garage.
i would like to find a scrap piece of marble or granite to put on the top eventually,
 but for now it is just perfect.
(i love the little stripe of aqua paint at the bottom)
i bought it for the breakfast nook, but when i saw it in the backroom against my new
paint color, (what do you think?) 
i knew it would have to stay in there.

the best part about this piece...
they delivered it to kansas!
 turns out they're from hutchinson (35 miles west)
so they met us at our walmart to pick it up!
it's a darn good thing too, there is no way it would've fit in my honda
once you see everything else i bought!

                                                     one last thing...if your a facebook friend you might
                                                 have heard me talk about the french fry pizza i had in texas.
                                                                                     i had it here.

                                                                 man, was she ever right!!!
                                                                    IT IS AMAZING!!!!!
                                           i don't even want to know how many calories are in each slice!!!

                                                 now i'm off to clean this ridiculously messy house,                                     
                                                            and make room for all my new goods!


  1. Oh that's just cold! I see how it is, just rub it in like that.
    I love it all. Even the run down cupboard and a beautiful marble top would just make it fabulous. Lovin' the flip flops too. As you know flip flops are my staple. I live in them, even during winter. A girl can never have enough slippas.

  2. WOW you bought tons!!!!

    We dont get very good antique stuff over here in UK as you do in the US. Im loving the 'D' too.

    how could you not force me in to your little car and make me go?! :)

    maybe california has a flea market???

  4. Not going to lie. I am crazy jealous. You got some epic loot!!! Then the cherry on top was the frech fry pizza. Wants. It. All.

  5. i think you have a spending problem):
