Flea Market Finds

An odd assortment to share with you and all those joining in with Sophie's meme. First up some really cute stacking mugs that my daughter spotted . They are made of the same stuff as baking dishes. Perfect for a picnics methinks.





 This booklet had to come home with me just by virtue of its amazing cover! Good old plastic - how happy she looks to be setting out to fill up her home with handcrafted plastic goodies!


 This poor tin is pretty battered but is still charming.



This next little item will not be gracing my body - ever, at all, not in a pink fit - sadly my 47 year old bosoms rely on far more technology than is offered by this piece of nonsense!

 However, if you look closely you will see a rather nice sparkly jewellery component just waiting to be disconnected from this bit of frippery. Do I sound bitter - there was a time (oh distant youth!) when I would have considered this a great addition to my wardrobe. sigh.



If you have hit the thrift stores this week I hope you had heaps of fun and found lots of exciting treasures! I am summoning up my courage and joining in with Blogtoberfest ( see button on side for more info) even though it means using the "C" word - 'commitment' I mean! Today would be Day 3 so I am already a bit behind but I have really good intentions ....
