Flea Market Finds

Hayfever and making stuff has kept me pretty well housebound this week so there hasn't really been any treasure seeking for me. sigh. During a search for a specific jewellery component (which I knew I had somewhere!), I unearthed a little stash of vintage stamps from a previous op-shop adventure. I remember these from my own Primary School years!


Words of encouragement...


A very Royal looking crown ...

An Aussie icon ...


I don't recall ever getting this one ...


.A Mullet - why not?!


Miss Muffett - very cute.

There are all sorts of animals, trucks and so forth but I must say my favourites are the text ones with their "positive reinforcement" messages ...

Visit Sophie and the crew for other terrific thrift store finds.

You must be as old as I am if you remember these. Did you ever get free milk in the bottle for play lunch? Now that is really going back.

Those are amazing. What a collection. We only got ink marks on ours and I never ever got good marks for neatness either. In fact my 7th grade math teacher told me I wrote like a boy. ( a bit sexist looking back on it today don't you think) Sorry about the hay feverthat can ruin creativity for sure.
I'll have to post my finds soon. i'm away visiting the folks across the country now.
