Todays Finds

You know
there are 'nice to dos'
and 'need to dos' 

and visiting flea markets are definately a 'need to do' thing
in my house, so I went for the lokal market today.
Not much to bring home though
but I did get a few things

a little bunch of old tin boxes in some great colors

a few ladies watches
going to pull them apart and use the part for jewelry - I think..

three little packages with old photos
from Sweden, Norway and Denmark

inside each there´s a bunch of old turist  photos
the colored ones are from Copenhagen
many years ago.

After visiting the Flea market
we went to visit my 90 year old MIL on the way back.

When we got there she draged me to a drawer
and wanted me to look at some old stuff she didn´t want to have anymore
and if I could some of this....

ofcourse I could

oh - and I have some old clocks too
would you like to have them too

just look at these
the big one at the right with the green color
is a perfect cream on the outside
and I just love that green and cream one to the left too

this is a very old jewelry box she had tucked
in the bag of her old cabinet
here, take this - she said
I don´t want this old junk anymore

and this is what I found inside....

lots of old jewelry parts, pins, earrings,

and a bag with vintage pearls and broken necklaces

I don´t think this junk
I think it´s a treasury

Don´t you think there could be some
great new jewelry out of this?

Wishing you all a blessed sunday
Tina ♥♥♥
