another flea market and a new hair color

this morning i got up early (ugh) to hit the Allaire State flea market. the day looked a little dicey (weather wise) to begin, but ended up being quite nice. i found some cool things (but of course! i can see my dad rolling his eyes at all this "stuff"). after i was done, i walked the park a bit, took some pictures and then headed over to get my hair colored. while taking pictures i found a small fencing section, about 15" inches long in a "possible" discard area. i say possible, because i don't really know. however, i sort of got "stickey fingers" and made an executive decision that it was trash and took it! i am going to go back tomorrow and inquire about the rest of it. if i can recyle it, why not? here are some of my finds:

Steve, a carpenter/artist made this. he is the one who made my most awesome tin shed cabinet.

metal egg basket (from a Wall barn i was told) and wood spools

sweet metal basket

great old shaving cream jars and bunson burners

metal collanders from the 80's

steve also made this. i thought it was so sweet and it can stay outside year round. perfect!

i have a thing for old used scissors - call scissors anonymous!

look at this great old easel! i just love it. going to great a piece just to put on it.

old shoe shine box

got a bunch of tintypes for $1.00 a piece! (yes, you read that correctly)

and here is the debut of my new hair color. a dark base with very bold, blonde streaks. very funky and dramatic. i'm tired of boring.

and P.S.
i wanted to say thank you to all my followers (and those of you that read anonmously) out there! i just hit 100, which i think is pretty cool. i'm glad my little chatter, art and lifestyle is found interesting by others!
