Flea Market Finds

Hello my dear friends,
 look what I found at the Flea Market! A little bling and some old lace.

                                                            Vintage butttons

MOP, glas buttons, pearl buttons - not too many but a lucky find.

The two above are metal snap ons but I thought I could use them as bezels. 

The Dictionary was another lucky find!!! German,French and English.
Wishing you all a wonderful day and thank you so much for stopping by and for all your lovely comments.

Hugs and love,

What lucky finds Marie! Bling, buttons and beautiful lace - all the things we mixed media people love to pick up. I love those pearl buttons really the most and that dictionary looks really interesting. Hope you have lots of happy time using these little treasures.
Have a wonderfully creative week too.
Hugs going your way,
