On Sunday morning, after only a few hours sleep, we decided to hit the flea market for its opening at 6 a.m. We decided that treasures were simply more important than beauty rest. Planning on attending Sunday mass after antiquing, we must have had church on our minds and managed to truffle out this wonderful vintage church birdhouse.
We also found a wonderful tin statue of a shepherd that looks so beautiful posed under a rhododendron. Other antiques that we uncovered were: a beautiful white feather fan, an antique wire office basket, a charming tea cup, stacks of antique cream and white hankies, an oval gutta percha case with an ambrotype of a woman, a fabulous 19th century braided wire hairpin, a vintage umbrella with wooden handle, and a vintage brass and silver mirror.
