fleamarket treasures

                                        That box doesn't look like much - does it?

                                         But wait till you see what's inside and it's covered with silk fabric.

                                                           a De Luxe Letter Wax Set !

                                                  See the tiny candle holder and candles?


there are three stamps in there: two eagles and one letter "R".
And look what I found next!!!

French sheet music - it was my lucky day!
Of course I'll share the sheet music with you, just didn't had the chance to scan them yet.
Thank's for stopping by and taking the time to leave me a comment.Have a wonderful day my friends.

Marie, you find the best things! When I was a teenager, sealing wax was all the rave and I sealed everything!

I absolutely LOVE the fabric giftbag you made but then, I love everything you make!

Have a happy day!

Sweet finds! I can't scan anything right now as our home computer took a nosedive. And my printer/scanner is attached to it.

Have a fabulous day! Tammy ;)

Marie, what a treasure! Do you know how old it might be? I've seen these types of outfits in Victorian Papers catalog but yours looks old.

You always find the greatest things, the sealing wax set is
really something you will use a lot, on your glue book pages and collages. Great finds Girlie!
Love to you,

Great finds! I so wish we had a flea market here.

Marie, I made a pincushion with a print from that lovely bit of ephemera you included with the mother-of-pearl buttons! :-) I posted a picture of it on my blog.
And a big Grrrr about my copier eating freezer paper! LOL!

What fabulous flea market finds! There is a flea market a bit north of me that I haven't made it to. I think I may need to head there this weekend!
