and More Finds

We have been celebrating the Whinsun this weekend
and I have spend some great time with family and friends

As they all - by now - know my love for
'old junk' as they call it, they had sheduled
some junking time for me too.

A trip to my favorite flea marked
and some saved boxes from and old lady
stored in secret at my family.

This is what I brought home 

from the flea market

an antique pair of binoculars

an old photo in frame

vintage glasses, handcrochet lace, some metal buttons

from the family

a bunch of old petticoats in cream, pink and peach
they are going to be transformed into altered suitcase pockets
[I think]

some old tools and a bunch of plasticcovered?  lace doilies

an old glass bottle, spectacle lenses and vintage hairpins

tins and a sweet french  powder canister

old cristmas candles and ornaments
and a stack of old bingo cards and numbers

a box of wooden spools and handles

and two big journals

with original Danish ledger paper from the fifties.
almost unused.
Would have been better if they had been used
but you can´t have it all, can you.....

Going to be busy in the studio the next days....
some of the stuff is already listed here.

All this together with a wonderful time
with family and friends
Who could ask for more...

Wishing you all a wonderful day
Tina ♥♥♥
