Looking for the perfect Shade

I love to find a great vintage lamp and I especially love to find them with their lampshades.
When they don't have their shade then I play a loosing game of , "Will The Lampshade Fit?"
Can anyone tell me how to figure out the perfect size shade for a lamp?
I thought this was a great idea for a great old lampshade frame.

I love how this one swirls to the side.

I love the added embellishment.

And here is what you do with the ones that you buy that don't fit.
Have a party with your friends!

I'll be passing out the hats.

Garden Inspirations from Scott's Flea Market

I have been daydreaming about the flowerbeds that I want to put in around the Shabby Old House. That must have been the reason that the garden inspired booths seemed to draw me in at Scotts. I loved this booth as well. Enjoy the pictures. .

More of Scott's Flea Market

This birdcage ivy is just one more reason to go to Atlanta's Scott's Flea Market and back to Jill's booth. I wish I had paid closer attention to where the booths were. So Jill if you are reading this, e-mail me. I would be happy to direct people to you!!
There are two mega huge buildings full of antique dealers as well as outside vendors. You will find anything your little heart desires!

A Trip to Scott's Flea Market

One of the best things about going to a flea market is meeting such talented people.
Meet Jill Clow. Jill has a darling booth. It just draws you in.
She specializes in what she terms Frenchy Garden.
Don't you just love it?

I'll post more later. Hubby's calling.

Proud as a Peacock

Have you ever carefully looked at a peacock?
Because of work, my hubby is staying in our RV throughout the week in a park in the Everglades that is home to over 30 or more peacocks. I was amazed by them.

I totally got the phrase proud as a peacock after seeing these guys strut around the park.

What makes you proud as a peacock?
And if you would like to be the proud owner of a new patio rug,
