Flea Marked Finds

I recently got a change to visit my all time favorite Flea market again
and I did get some really great finds
at least I think they are though
wanna have a look?

a sweet silver tray - a bit worn and tattered
and it do need some pohlish too
but I think it will look great with some lace in

a big bunch of crochet doilies and
some tart molds too

old key holes
and a box of vintage dominoes in a smaller size
than I have seen before.

I have no idea what to use them for - yet (the dominoes that is)
just thought they were great
and they might fit in to the Sweet and Sinister Swap coming up
with the black and white theme - what do you think?

some old tins
I´m really fond of those tiny yellow ones.
They were use for pain killers

a big back for old chandelier parts - yummi.

Have I been for a lookout for them... oh man
They are so great - image all the possibilities here..

a sweet little cloches - my second

the sweetest little cakestand.
I love the look of this.
Bought in another booth than the cloche

and look what happens when I pair to two

How cool it that...

Wishing you all a beautiful sunday
Tina ♥♥♥

I love the finial on your cake plate. I think the dominos would be intersting on the cake plate, OR in the silver plate bowl, mixed in with a little lace, or maybe some of the chandelier prisms. Its wonderful how everything you bought goes together.

Tina, everything looks perfect arranged together!
Hmmm...the dominoes...maybe glued on top of a box in an interesting pattern?
Great finds!

Oh Tina such lucky finds, congrats!!! :)
Love the chandelier crystals, especially the flower like parts, I never found those so far. I could imagine a pendant with a domino part and a chandelier flower on top for example for a necklace.
The cloche fits fabulously on the cake stand and I love the pinecone like final of the cake stand!

Happy Sunday to you!

Such beautiful and all. Love the dominos and the silver tray. Great finds.

WOW! You found some great treasures, Tina! My favorite, though, would HAVE to be the keyholes!!! I've been looking for those FOREVER! Guess you just have to be at the right place at the right time.... The dominoes are really cool, too. I've seen some really pretty necklaces made with vintage dominoes! So what are your plans for the little tart molds????

Hi Tina, These are lots of great finds! I love the marriage of the beautiful cake stand and the cloche. It's the perfect combination. The key holes are wonderful! Have fun playing!
Big hugs to you,

Gorgeous stuff you have found. I think you can't have too many chandelier prisms, I use mine in every different way decorating etc. The cloch and the tray was perfect together. Those little albyl tins are something special for me. I keep needles and pins in mine and so did my grand mothers on both sides and my mother. Have a great weekend /Therese
