Favorite Flea Market Find

Saw an article in my favorite issue of Country Living May 2013 Issue Thrifty & Chic. Which had tons of great home tours, Yard Sale Tips & Tricks
DIY Decorating on a Dime (right up my alley)

Inside was a reader write in section about Flea Market Finds
Where you could right in or share it on their blog
I immediately thought of my favorite find, A Blue Pepsi Cooler
This really caught my eye, and it was a birthday present of sorts too
You don't really see many in this color
Plus I like Pepsi better than Coke anyway, You do to right ?

My Cooler holds a Glass Pepsi bottle collection
Many thanks to my brother (King Bottle Collector) for those 

I have struggled with a place to display, that the kids wouldn't try to ride it 
or try to pick it up, I decided to attach some floor pads on the bottom of it
and put it in the entry way. So far so good, It's been there a good couple of months and no one has messed with it.

This bench is another favorite, Was my grandparents and
my father passed it down to my. I distressed the blue paint some
Thought about painting the blue a different color but decided against it in the long run, I am loving the blue
I have decorated it with a few of my favorite throw pillows
Including the Mammy Vintage Tea Towel Pillow, That Tea Towel was in my
shop forever, No sales so I decided to repurpose it into a pillow
And now I don't think I can part with it..
I am sure I will change my mind, you never know
