Flea Market Garden Finds

Welcome.  I am so happy that you stopped by.  My garden gate is always open for you to come in an sit and relax with an ice tea while I share with you some of the treasurers my friend Marilyn and I found at the flea market.  You know it is a good day when you come home with 3 step ladders and 2 large bird houses in the back seat along with a tail gate filled with treasurers.

Let's take a quick tour of one of our favorite Flea Markets in Costa Mesa, Ca -Behind the Picket Fence - and then we will come back to my garden to see a few of my new finds.

How cute is this "Itty Bitty Vintage Shop"?

                                 Love all of the rust on the vintage metal items.

 New vendor, Pristine Gardens, had a beautiful display of succulents and containers and will come to your home for landscape and  maintenance of your garden and can be reached at 949 -702-6955.  

Her containers are beautiful and so well made.

                                                         Lots of unusual enamel ware.

Linda Bucci is a very talented jewelry designer and metal smith and her work is stunning and so collectible.  She teaches jeweler making classes at her Red Vine Studio and her work can be seen on her ETSY shop at www.lindabucci.etsy.com

I love birdhouses made from recycled wood and my heart skipped a beat or 2 when we stopped at The Birdman of Orange's space.  I ended up buying 2 large birdhouses and 2 signs and will share them with you at the end of this post.  The Birdman  of Orange can be reached at 657-600-2089 and is also on Facebook and Instagram ,. They also makes custom pieces hand painted to order.  Their prices are very reasonable and I was able to buy all 4 pieces for what some shops charge for one piece. 

Now for the fun part - sharing some of my new flea market finds. The Birdman  of Orange birdhouse  displayed with all water-wise succulents and plants.

Red ladder - love the galvanized trim on it - with new galvanized containers.

                                                 Love the red ladder with my red cushions.

Large red birdhouse made by The Birdman of Orange - I have been looking for one this size for  a while and love how this one fits with my old vintage flag.

One of my favorites is the galvanized cow feed bucket as it has a big handle that can be hung on a fence or in this case old shutters.

Thank you for stopping by.  I sincerely appreciate your visits, e-mails, comments and those following my blog.  I apologize for not getting around to visit you as often as I would like - I am now showing my art in two galleries and there is not enough time in the day.  I hope to be able to visit you again soon.

Have a lovely week.  Blessings,  Erin

Erin, your garden looks so good. Love all the bird houses you purchased. I will have to make a trip down to that places - so many pretties.
My garden looks so bad that it is hard for me to go out in the back yard. I am praying that we get a lot of rain this fall and winter.
Thank for sharing all your new garden accessories with us.
Have a great week - it's getting HOT again.

Love that red ladder. I will have to find myself a good flea market. They are not prevalent in my area. Lots of yard sales galore, though...
