Flea Market Finds

It seems as the weather gets colder it is harder to find the motivation to step out of a cosy, warm house. Still, there is thrifting to be done so like all stalwart Treasure Hunters, I soldiered on! This week I discovered - to my surprise - that I have a penchant for angels, or more precisely images of angels. I only brought one home with me but I was tempted by several others.


I think the real appeal of this picture is in fact the foil cake paper that has been used on the frame - very inventive and adding just that bit of glitz don't you think?!


... and doesn't she have a serene face - so kindly even when dealing with marauding children rampaging through fragile ecosystems - gotta admire that! I also found a rusty lotus-shaped votive holder - I think it might find its way into a shrine of some sort.


 I also recycled some op-shopped t-shirts into necklaces.




These are definitely "site specific" pieces - they look so great on an actual body but a bit dodgy just sitting around. For a sqizz at what has been going on in the world of thrifting, head  over to Sophie's.

I collect vintage religious frames and pictures, and that is a doozy, very nice....I have several of the guardian angels to watch over my marauding children...not sure what people think when they enter my home, that I will start reciting passages from the bible or something, but I do have quite a bit, and cant resist them when I come across them....God Bless...lol...

No, the necklaces look great just sitting there, too! What a great job of recycling!

marauding children rampaging fragile ecosystems... i smile at your words, i do. i'm often moved by the bitter sweetness of these kind of pictures. blaspemiously (huh? is that a word?) i use them up on covers for notebooks, after i've shellacked the paper with clear glue...
i know, what a job!
