What's in all those boxes at the flea market where everything's a dollar anyway? Dig deep and you never know what's swimming beneath the surface.

Hi Eddie & Jaithan.. Me again.
Just popping in to say thank you for your comment on my last post.
Also. I got hold of Debra. She said she had the best time with you guys and I am so glad to hear there is a bit of live and joy in her voice again. To hang with you and help out with the event preparations was just what she needed I think. xx
Did she tell you about the memory blog we are doing in Marija's name? I'd love for you to contribute once it is up. I know how much Marija treasured the time you guys had together and how excited she was to find that you all got along so well.
Have a lovely rest of the week.

One word: WOW!
You seriously don't find things like that in the one dollar boxes in Norway. I need to go flea marketing with you guys in NY!!

Please! Everytime I check in on what you're up to, I am blown away even more...truly! The compote and the arrangement are beyond beautiful, such a find and how you used it is so striking!
Maybe you could do a "Dolphin Day" once in a while and we could see your talents at work with the fish again...just a thought. ;)

Seriously gorgeous!! But more information is needed here -- just HOW did you get those perfect elegant blooms to stay put in the pretty compote? Perhaps a "during" photo shot might be handy ..... please, please, please ..... (really whining and pleading here! LOL!)

I love the old dolphin pattern. Great find. And even more stunning with your vibrant floral arrangement. BTW- I saw a for sale sign on Todd Farm the other day. You might want to investigate before your next trip. El

Window coverings can be a classic addition to any room. I came across your post this afternoon while browsing interior design blogs and the topic of window treatment selection was very interesting to me. It is true that you must dress your windows appropriately to bring out their true beauty.

very nice! I can see you using this for inspiration for an entire table.
July 30, 2010 at 03:52 PM
No one makes me want to go dig in a flea market, curbside trash, Salvation Army/Goodwill Store like you, Eddie! This is just such a whimsical, wonderful find!
July 30, 2010 at 03:25 PM
What an amazing find!

OM gosh has Terri seen this??? She is going to covet this for sure! What a treasure and how fun. I just did some GW shopping with a friend yesterday and found a few treasures I will share later this week.Just like the Ansel Adams negative story , this is what keeps us looking for the hidden treasure. Now I want to do some more thrifting, see how you always inspire me, Hugs Kathysue

You always find good treasures!! And...so fun that I bought my first-ever copy of "The Nest" mag and I was so happy to find your lovely budget makeover! I really loved the art & the lamps...Julie

Now that is not something you see everyday. That is why some people love the thrill of finding a treasure and are willing to dig.

Wow that is great! Loving the floral arrangement too.
July 29, 2010 at 06:43 PM
LOVE THAT! LA LA LOVE IT.
Started work on an estate sale that we're conducting in the Chicago area - there is an entire basement of boxes and that's what keeps me interested in the work that goes with the HUNT....Be open to stumbling upon treasures and you will find them.
July 29, 2010 at 05:43 PM
Just wanted to let you know I was one of the winners of the trex contest - thank you so much for letting people know about it on your blog - I am ecstatic!
July 29, 2010 at 05:04 PM
very unique find. personally i can't say it's my favorite piece ... but i do like how you filled it with flowers making them look almost like their flowing. maybe one could do the same with a unique candlestick with a bowl of sorts attached.

What a beautiful find- I love how detailed he is! You two have the best eye for scores like this :)

I love the dolphin, we have a big dolphin garden statue with a putti on it.

Wow what a find! Love the flowers in that compote. Just gorgeous.

As a fellow gardener, I love finding inexpensive ways to give away my Dahlias. The thrift store, antique shop, and resale boutique also have lots of options that don't break my bank. Nothing like a $1 unique vase that I don't have to think twice about not getting back!
Thanks for the well wishes the other day. It really was kind of you and succeeded in lifting my spirits.
PS The desk is done!
July 29, 2010 at 11:37 AM
Woo hoo guys this is wonderful!! You always work magic with a little polish and shine.
Thank you again for your well wishes Eddie and Jaithan.

Perfect for a Naval Officers home ~ now I need one :)
I'm new to your blog and love it.
July 29, 2010 at 10:49 AM
What a charming find! LOVE that loose arrangement inside -so romantic and drips of summertime!
July 29, 2010 at 10:38 AM
Eddie, so cool! I can see it with a Chinese dinner as the enterpiece!
Thanks for visiting my blog again, a nice comment!
Have a good day!

Only a dollar? What a find!
July 29, 2010 at 10:12 AM
Treasures like this are why everyone needs to go flea marketing with Eddie and Jaithan at least once in your life! Of course, once you've met them, you'll want to go to the next one too!

July 29, 2010 at 09:43 AM
SCOOOOOORE! That's a great little piece!

The thrill of the hunt! I love peonies, and the vessel is gorgeous.

Oh, my gracious! I am having a fit! The compote is beautiful and the flowers simply stunning! One for each room in the house, please!

July 29, 2010 at 08:24 AM
certainly have given
this dolphin a second
chance to shine, especially
when filled with this
sublime combo of flowers!
I can think of a certain
blogger whose name has
dolphin in it who would
LOVE to get her hands
on this beauty!
Happy Thursday : )

That's amazing! It's so unique, and it looks perfect with the way you arranged the flowers. I wish I could smell them in person! Christine

I think I need to start going to flea markets and digging thru those boxes you keep finding instead of going to yardsales. That is a treasure. Your flowers are gorgeous as usual. Your finds always put a smile on my face.
July 29, 2010 at 08:09 AM
Heavenly - both the dauphin and les fleurs.
July 29, 2010 at 07:34 AM
Oh, so lovely. What a great find, and a grand way to use it!
Now I have been reminded to dig a little deeper when we go out on
the World's Largest Yard sale trail next week!
July 29, 2010 at 07:19 AM
You certainly have the magic touch! That is so lovely.
July 29, 2010 at 06:42 AM
I shall call you Captain Nemo!
What a treasure!
July 29, 2010 at 03:35 AM
This is lovely! You are a true inspiration!

Oh...so pretty! Love the peonies, fuschia and roses. What a lovely mix.
