Vintage lovers...drool, and walk like an egyptian!

I was out at the farmers/flea market this morning and my glorious day...what fun!!!! It was jammed packed! It was also a billion degrees by 8:s0 am. It topped out at 94* when we left at 10:30 am.
I spent 6.50 on some of the coolest vintage yumminess!!!
I found a very cool old nursery rhyme book but the guy wanted 10.00 and talked down to me like I was the village idiot for not wanting to pay that for it. "That there's a antique(yes, he did NOT say "an" before the vowel a in antique) and if you want somethin' that's not then you go on out an' buy somethin' made in china!" I just walked away.
Thank goodness I didn't pay that ridiculous price for it. No sooner did I turn the corner and I straightaway found a table everything for a quarter! SCORE!!!!!! I picked up 20 things! I'll show you the pictures below.
Then I found in a box everything for a dollar, an old 1964-1965 Worlds Fair in New York City Book. Loved it for a dollar! Then I found a highlights book from 1976 and I had to have it for memory purposes for 50 cents.
Wait, I forgot, I paid 1.50 for an old army patch that said Lloyd and two packages of buttons from army uniforms. Each was 50 cents! My grandfather's name was Lloyd!
So that brought my total to $8.00!

Here is my layout I did today of my darling Jayda girl. She cracks me up withthe way she thinks!
Humming, walk like an egyptian!

Gromlets: We are memory keepers
Big Bite 2
Off white cardstock for journaling
Printed out words

If you are wondering how I created the flourish with stickles, I used a naked chipboard negative space!
