Flea Market Style and Giveaway announcement

So Dan is on vacation this week and you know what that means! Projects,projects,projects and that's why the blogging has been erratic.

Yesterday I had a follow up appointment for my eyes to check to see if I really had glaucoma. And I don't ! YAY! Dancing around Pyrex....

So since we were a the big shopping center, I needed to shop for underwear...again ! The last batch was really cheap and was full of holes . On the way in 6 months.So off to Sears we went I saw a big magazine store and I decided to stop and check to see if they had Flea Market Style. I was real eager to look at it because I had missed the first issue.

And to my big surprise they had it! I hungrily leafed through it and decided to buy it until I saw the price....

12.95$ excuse me? 12.95$ ????? For an ok magazine?

Excuse me, I'm screaming in my living room! Sorry about that. So when I saw the price I said are they f***** kidding? It's a version of Country Living.

I understand it's an indie mag but people who go to fleas, thrift shop or scavenge are not gonna pay 12.95$ for a mag telling them how to decorate with their finds. They already know, it's in them,it's genetic! And besides they want a good deal!

Ok now on with the giveaway! On August 22nd I will be turning 45 (oh my) and to celebrate I will have a giveaway to celebrate!
I will announce it tomorrow on VTT so come back for a visit tomorrow!

The pics in this post were from Morrisburg's Antiquefest last saturday.

Have a great day!

Good to her that it's not glaucoma. Did it rain Pyrex when you did your dance?

I didn't realize that there was a 2nd FMS magazine. I bought the first and a few weeks ago it ended up blowing into the pool!

P.S. I meant to ask you...the yellow and red Pyrex that you're looking for....what would a fair price be?

glad about your eyes, honey... are they okay?

And um, is that jadeite? again?

I am not entering your giveaway but I do love your egg plate and salt and pepper shakers. I love green. As to the price of the mag. I agree with you. I don't like the paper the first issue was printed on either. Haven't see the second yet.
