Some Great News and Some Great Finds

I promised I would show you my finds
from my latest visit at my all time favorite flea market
but first I want to share some great news with you.

I now have a sales representative in the US.
Sweet Felicia at The Bear Scout
is going to represent me and my bears at her
shows across the US and in Japan too.

I´m so happy to start working with Felicia and a little
bunch of bears are already on their way across the ocean
to make their debut over there.
Among is this sweet little black fellow above.
He is only 4.2 inch - his name is Pierre


And now to my lucky finds.
let´s have a closer look

a few beautiful table runners
one is hand crochet

some pieces of torn pillowcases with lace
and pieces with beautiful crochet flowers

sweet little pillow cases
some tattered silverware
and a few teeny tiny french chocolate molds

a huge bunch of wonderful lace and ribbon.

another sweet pillowcase with embroidery - F.H.
more crochet lace pieces
old handkerchiefs and some doilies too.

this awesome glass jar - you can´t really see it, but
the shape is very cool.
More wonderful french chocolate molds

an old book filled with music sheets - some of the
pages with beautiful graphic
and an old photo album - no cabinet cards inside
but that doesn´t matter at all - these are so rare over here. 

and this very cool old
measuring tape - I don´t know how old
this is - I have never seen any like that over here before.

Here´s a closeup of some of the lace pieces

How beautiful are they.
I can´t wait to use everything
in my creations.


better go work on some bears first.

Thank you so much for visiting today
my sweet friends.
Wishing every one of you
a beautiful and wonderful weekend.

How wonderful that your bears will be travelling! Beautiful finds, too- I found a cloth tape measure a lot like yours yesterday and was tickled to find it, too.

Pierre is just darling. I am excited for your news that your adorable bears will have more exposure. Your lace and trims are all so gorgeous and I can bet they will inspire you in your beautiful art. Have a lovely week friend.

Wonderful news about your bears - they are so beautiful Tina, and I think you will have great success in the States.
