Flea Market Luck!

Today was just my day! It was meant to be that I spent the morning at the flea market. I could not be more thrilled about my fab finds. After a slew of weekends with mediocre luck, I managed to hit the jackpot today!

It gets even better. My friends Emilie, Ashley, and I wondered inside to check out an antique jewelry display. If you're in the need of a good life lesson, go see Mrs. Peggy. She's been in the same spot for 39 years. Be sure to have plenty of time on your hands! This is what I found:
At first glance, it doesn't seem like much more than your usual antique costume jewelry...

HOWEVER! These just happen to be my new initials!! And they are 24K gold dipped!

They're small buttons to be sewn onto Lord knows what. Maybe a buttonless coat? I'm giving them to STH so he can have them made into a necklace and maybe earrings (don't worry, I won't wear the set at once) or even to use as buttons! I'm not really sure, so it'll be up to him. 

I was in such an awesome mood once I got home.
Here's what I accomplished:

I can finally see all my sparkly pretty things!
We started by pulling everything out and off our shelves last weekend, but I finished organizing today! I had my work cut out for the afternoon!

Feeling very blessed + thankful today:)

Happy Saturday!
