Latest Flea Market Finds

My latest flea market finds =)

My son Chris and I went to the Blue Ridge flea market last Sunday morning. We went very early because it was hot and humid. My dear Honey said "please try not to buy anything".... hmmmmm I'm thinking... NO!

A Red Willow bowl to add to my collection I just started. $4

A Ruby Glass Vase that my son spotted. I've never seen one like this before. $3

My favorite... light aqua blue glass candle sticks. I saw these early and the seller wasn't around. The whole time I was walking around I was thinking of these. I thought they were gone, but I was looking at the wrong stand and spotted them when I was walking past to leave. They are the color blue of mason jars that I love. Great price $5

Great flea market finds + $12 = a happy heart~

Marilyn's Macaroni Salad~

Marilyn's Macaroni Salad

1/2 package (2C.) Rotelli macaroni
3 hard boiled eggs
1 C. mayonaise (I prefer Kraft)
1/4 C. cream
1 tsp. sugar
2 T. vinegar
1 1/2 T. green pepper (I leave this out)
1 diced tomato

Cook macaroni as directed on package. Cool. Mix mayonaise with cream, sugar, salt and vinegar. Combine cooled macaroni and vegetables with mayonaise mixture. Pepper to taste. Refrigetate several hours or over night. 6 Servings.

My Sister in Law Marilyn was a wonderful cook. I don't know it this was a recipe of hers or one of the many that she collected. All I know is, it's one of my favorites! Enjoy!
