Flea Market Finds

After a lovely twirl around our local Farmers Market ...


with a basket brimming with fresh goodies ...


 I paid a quick visit to one of my favourite op-shops and was rewarded with this little gem ...


It is a sweet dove-grey Meakin jug and it looks just perfect holding these blooms - rescued after the rain ...


I also turned up a couple of Agatha Christie paperbacks, a book on typography and some linen tea-towels. A very nice Saturday morning haul! Earlier this week I continued using up a very dilapidated copy of Alice in Wonderland to make some tiny bunting.

The stamp in the middle is a wee hand-carved one that my eldest daughter bought for me at a Sydney market some time ago - isn't it cute? Pop over to Sophie's to see what she and the rest of the gang have been collecting this week.
