2nd Time Around: Birds and Spring!

 Welcome to 2nd Time Around. Please join us by linking a post that features something that is a 2nd Time Around to you…something from a garage sale, flea market, thrift store, estate sale, etc. Please link your post rather than your blog, and link back to this blog. Thank you for participating.


One of my favorite things at the flea market are bird related items! I love these vintage bird prints with an updated frame. I have two very similar that I have been needing to make a decision about! I think I may keep them for the guest bedroom. I bought them really cheap at an estate sale, and the young man conducting the sale for his grandmother got very emotional as he told me how much she loved her bird prints! I love them too!



Sometimes in my hurry to buy things for my booth, I overlook flaws that I should have noticed! If you look carefully at this little bird flower pot you will notice that the tail is broken from one of the birds. Actually this pot has been in my booth awhile, and I had been surprised that no one bought it. Then one day the lady that runs it called me and told me someone was interested in this pot but wanted to know if I would reduce the price because one of the feathers was broken! Of course I said yes! Maybe the new owner has repaired it!



I’m ready for spring, and enjoy browsing the antique mall and the flea market for flower pots! I had much rather buy a one of a kind than a mass produced one at Walmart or somewhere!

Thanks for stopping by!

I love your bird prints, Diane. I have a set of four like those that I got from my mother, and have them in my laundry room.

I'm glad you sold your bird planter. I've also bought things without putting my glasses on and got them home and found out they were broken or chipped. An "ARRRGGHHHH!" moment for sure!

Good morning Diane, Thank you for your well wishes and comment several days ago. I have had vision problems but am now able to see much better. It is so good to be visiting again.

I love your bird prints and the darling little ones sitting on the planter. You and I are thinking alike in our posts today.
Have a wonderful day,
Hugs, Jeanne

Good morning Diane, I started over to link and you haven't posted. I hope everything is alright. Perhaps you are away or taking a break. If you are, I hope you have a good relaxing time.
Love, Jeanne
