This Years First {Flea} Market


I came across a new flea market today
Not too far away, so made arrangements with DD
and off we went to check it out.

It looks very promising and we will defenitely be visiting
again some time soon.

This is the lot I came home with 

some old school note books from when I was a child

pretty little books.
I really like the graphic on the covers of these

all music sheets inside

wonderful  embroidered vintage linen dish clothes.
I haven´t decided whether to sew something from these
or keep and use as is - hhmmm

and these wonderful old books.
They are craft books filled with motives for china painting.
Love the front covers

and the back covers too.
Danish Wild flower and Flora.
So pretty

filled with the most pretty motives

I don´t paint china
but thought they were great ephemera for 
journaling, collaging or a mixed media project. 

I´ve listed these craft books in the shop

There´s still a few months till the Flea market
season opens over here.
Boy - was is great to find one 
on a wonderful saturday in February :-)

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend

Tina ♥♥♥

Oh you lucky girl, you came back with some great finds. I love the tea towels, I don't think I could cut them up, I'd use them as they are. These old tea towels always seem to be so much better.

Hej Tina, (jeg er syg for at vide hvor du har været på loppemarked henne) du har virkelig fundet "guld" de gamle viskestykker er skønne, men de skal jo rulles. og alle de små "porcelæns malerbøger" har jeg også, en rest fra min malerskole, nænner ikke skille mig af med dem, de runde cirkler på sidste side er motiver til brocher. knus morkaren.
