February Antique Fair Finds

Finally! I figured out how to get the pictures out of my new camera!
This was almost a month ago at my favorite flea market here in Tucson.

I'm using the rocking chair, if my back hurts I'm finding that a few minutes sitting in this chair makes the pain go away. They knew how to design chairs to be comfortable years ago. I wish I knew the age of this, I'm thinking maybe 1920's???

The blue bookcase, I hope, will go in the house after I paint it a nice warm cream. I needed one, this is the correct height but it's wider than I planned. I will try it and see and for $20 it can always be used elsewhere. (by the way, I did paint the bookcase a nice tan color and put it in place, it looks perfect!!!)

The section of vintage windmill blades was a steal at $40! A rebar Saguaro for the garden, a little cement finial and a beat up old metal pitcher among a few other treasures. The square twig box is held together on the corners with leather and is supposedly made by local Indians. 
Cool old watering can too.


I can't believe the next "antique fair" (they don't call them flea markets here) is this coming Sunday already. Wonder what treasures I will find! That's the exciting part.

Thanks for stopping! I'm still learning this computer and camera and hope to get better at posting.

I'm wondering what you will do with the windmill blades. I love the twig box and the white pitcher.
