    Finally went to the Flea Market this weekend (I think it is hard traveling with a cane, so don’t get out as much as I use to!!)
    We (DH and I) had started out just for a ride. Stopped by the Flea Market just to take a look and see what they had new, usually not much, same old stuff!

    This lady had a table of all kinds of “junk” (another man’s treasure!) and way over on the end was this little wooden thingy!
    So, I asked “How much?”
    She looked very puzzled-----I don’t think she even knew she had this wooden thingy on the table!!!!
    She picked it up and turned it over a couple of times (of course no price on it!!)
    Looked at me and said “Would a dollar be too much?”
    I looked at her and said “No, I’ll take it”
    And to DH “Pay the woman!”

    Oh, I will never live down the "flowering weed" Will I??? :oops: :lol: :wink:
    You know for 19 years everyone had been talking about how pretty that flowering vine was! several wanted a start!
    But, no this one is not going to get the vine! I started on a doll quilt last night. And boy did I ever do a mess with my machine---I am going back to hand qulting!

    Very interesting looking wooden thingy. Aside from thinking the doll quilt idea is a great one, the only other thing I could come up with is that maybe it's to hold hand towels??? Very, very interesting.
