Sunday has rolled around again so it is time to join in Sophies meme, Flea Market Finds. It has been a bit of a lean week for op-shopping - so many other things keeping me busy. Still, I did manage a bit of a flit around my favourite on Saturday morning. Ages ago one of the lovely volunteers there gave me an amazing broken bowl that she had purchased in Morrocco - she carted it all over the place - through Egypt on rickety buses and other dodgy modes of transport and it stayed safe and sound in one piece - right up until she got to Australia - it got broken in her suitcase! She was so sad about it - it was in a zillion pieces so couldn't even be patched together. The upshot of it was that she hung onto it for years and eventually gave it to me. I promised to make her a piece of jewellery from it - which turned out to be a bit of a challenge! Still, I finally got it made and dropped it off to her at the op shop. She was really pleased with it and I get to keep the rest of the shards so everyone is a winner! So, that is how I found myself at the oppie on Saturday morning when really I should have been chiselling some of the soap scum off the bathroom tiles! Naturally, I found a couple of treasures!
Here is the t-shirt reincarnated as a cushion.
