My Latest Flea Market Find {& A Dreamy Idealist Personality}

My Latest Flea Market Find {& A Dreamy Idealist Personality}

 My Latest Flea Market Find!

Hello! Hope you all had a lovely Christmas! We stayed in our jammies all day eating delicious food. It was heavenly! We felt very blessed and enjoyed every minute of it.

Today I headed out to a fun local flea market (Uptown Mercantile Marketplace, formerly known as Flea Market Chicks) and stumbled upon this glorious metal arbor. I suddenly had visions of it engulfed in blooming vines this summer in my backyard, right at the edge of our new pea gravel patio. I pictured removing the door/shelf thing so we could meander through it at the entrance to what I hope will be a small area with newly planted vegetable garden boxes. Perhaps I would add a couple of new cushions to the benches on each side of the arbor. I was so inspired by the possibilities that I couldn’t leave the store without buying it. Even though an arbor was not on my list of ‘must haves’ right now, the romantic idea of it drew me in!

I’ll worry about how to get it home later, heheheh.

It is going to be a lovely focal point for our backyard. Now I can’t wait for summer :-)!

PS. I took an online personality test and my personality was “Dreamy Idealist.” That probably explains why I romanticize everything, hahaha. Sigh. Anyway, you can see how it describes me via that “Dreamy Idealist” link above and then while you are there, just click on “take a free personality test” and see what yours says about you! It’s fun and only a few questions!

Come back and tell me what your personality is, I want to know!

What’s new around your place?
