Todays Finds

Hello my sweet friends

A little update on this beautiful sunday.
We´re having a wonderful indian summer
and yesterday was the varmest day ever on an October 1th
Sunny and about 77 degress

I haven´t been able to spend much time in
the studio since our vacation -even grown up
kids needs a lending hand from time to time.
The 'to-do' list is growing and I´m a wee bit behind.

The Flea market season is almost over
and today was my last change to hit one.
Most of the booths were with clothes and shoes
today, but I did find a few with some cool old stuff
and here´s todays finds

pretty creamy velvet ribbon
one with a wonderful edge

a few vintage handlerchiefs
and some lace and crochet pieces

a wonderful vintage photoalbum.
These are really rare over here, so lucky me.

Filled with wonderful old photos too.
Great score I think

a pair of pretty little black girls shoes.
Thought they would be perfect for display
or maybe with a little bear inside.

Thanks for popping in today
and wishing you all a wonderful day.

Hi Tina~ I love all your finds! The velvet ribbon is gorgeous! And the album is such a great find. I never find them filled with photos around here.
And yes, one of your adorable bears would be adorable in one of the shoes.
It is raining here but at least it isn't cold.

Hi dear Tina, It's a shame that the flea market season is almost over. The velvet ribbon is amazing and of course I love the laces and crocheted pieces. The photo album is wonderful. They are rare here too and when I see them over here, they are very expensive.
Have a great week with more lovely fall weather.
Hugs to you,
