Flea Market finds and a new heart

 Look what I found today at the local Flea Market -  for 50 cents I just had to take it along.

I love old letters and old glasses so these came home with me too.

old bottle and a small jar of vintage buttons, most of them mop! Lucky day.


Another heart in the making, it just needs to be sewn together and stuffed with lavender.

Have a wonderful weekend my dear friends and thanks for stopping by.
Hugs and love to you,

Hi Marie sweetie,

Such a great bunch --and I love the Tour Eifel, of course- and everything else- you was very lucky.
Your new heart is so sweet, and will be wonderfully smelling with some lavenders inside.

Hugs, and happy saturday, to you,dear.

Wow, looks like you had a really nice day, I love your new finds! Your new lace heart looks lovely already, even without the lavender! Wish we could smell it once it's filled up right through our laptop, LOL! Have a wonderful weekend, Ira

Marie,You had a great flea market day. I love the Eiffel
Tower. The heart you are making is especially pretty. All of my materialmis back in St.Paul and I am missing it, as I would love to make some little hearts! I must be satisfied with my journal and some jewelry supplies! Hopefully we will be back in time to make some valentine treats. Until then, I will have to enjoy yours!
Big hugs,

Hi Marie. Amazing finds. Those bottles will be perfect for the Smitten class. The Eiffel Tower caught my eye as I adore anything with a Parisian connection and how could you not re-home those glasses and letters. I always like to ponder on the stories of past lives. Great finds.
Another adorable heart and to fill with lavender will make it so special. I find it such a soothing smell, especially when suffering from a migraine. Thank You for sharing.
Enjoy your day. Wishes. Lynne M
