Flea Market Finds.

The weather wasn't really conducive to getting out and about this week - far too cold for me! I did get a phone call from my favourite op-shop though because they are having a clean out and had some stuff they thought I would like. It struck me as kinda funny but they were really adamant about not accepting any money - not even a donation - guess I am a good customer! So here is the box of silverware that they thought I might use to make some jewellery.


I will definitely put them to good use at some stage!


I admired this lino that was gracing the top of a dresser type cupboard and before I knew it, it was in the boot of my car! It is pretty grubby but I am sure I will be able to clean it up and use it somehow.


These tins I actually purchased - all of 50 cents each! I am planning to use them to make some brooches.
head on over to Sophie's for a look at all the goodies that people have hunted up this week.

It's kinda like 'rewards points' when they do that. Well done I'm in awe of your talent.
