{More thrify goodness, a name, and my girls}

As I mentioned in my previous post, we took a family outing to the flea market in Long Beach for Father's Day this year! My dad LOVES walking around looking at everything, just like my sis and I do. My brother puts up with it, and actually got a couple of things this time. Here are some of my fabulous finds....

*Disclaimer: I know I am supposed to be looking for the things for our flea booth, but unfortunately (and fortunately), I think that all things purchased this time are keepers!! I have been really good about not keeping things so far, so I am letting myself have these goodies!

Since I have an affinity for the whole mid-century modern vibe, this amazing lucite magazine rack was a must-have! I L-O-V-E it!!

And I got these two American potato (gunny) sacks.....could be cool as a seat cushion for some of the chairs that I am going to sell at the flea, or maybe stretched across a canvas or on the backing of a shadow box. Hmm...the possibilities are endless!

And then there was this way cool wire basket. I think I'll use him to help store all of my craft supplies :)

I also found this adorable little race horse picture. I thought this could be cool as a part of a vignette of frames in a hallway, or even in a nursery.....hmmm.......interesting!! ;) (side note - I am not typically very "country" or into horse-themed art, but there is definitely something charming about this little guy. He has that little something going on that I like!)

And last but certainly not least, I scored this pristine milk glass citrus reamer for my collection :)

LOVE!! All in all it was a great (long) day at the flea!! I always have the best time hanging out with my family!

Speaking of family, I finally (after only 10 months of being married) officially and legally changed my last name!! I really want all of my "baby" stuff to say "Vinograd", and needless to say, although I love my dad, getting rid of the last name "Lichterman" has been something that I have been looking forward to for a long time - LOL. Sorry papa!

And just for good measure, here is a picture of my little Sadie resting near her mama while she "works", and Bear hanging out with us too! Such sweet girls!!

Happy Tuesday! :)
