Last week I visited the local flea market. I know this sounds ridicules, but I always feel a kind of excitement.
I arrived early to be sure I have the best bargains. It was crowded. At 9 the gates were opened.
In a stand with garden equipment I saw two old-fashioned beach chairs. What an opportunity! I wanted to have those for a long time. I bought them immediately. At the same stand, I also bought three small birdcages. They looked a bit dusty, but for the price of one euro I was very satisfied.
The beach chairs needed a new cloth. I wanted to have a black colour. I went straight up to the local upholsterer and asked him to fix it for me. He promised me to do that this week.
After I arrived home I painted the birdcages in a white colour. After drying I placed a small vase inside and added some flowers. I hung them above the coffee table in the barn. It looks perfect together with the glass vases that already hang above the table. During the open garden days I am sure many visitors will admire my work.
For those of you who are not able to come to visit my garden, I made some pictures. I can’t wait to show you my treasures!
