Flea Market Finds and some soldering

Hello my dear friends,
I found these little magnet hearts in a shop and of course they had to come home with me. My idea was to solder one of them to see what it looks like. Seeing the outcome I think I will solder the other two as well.
A perfect little gift don’t you think?

Today I went to the flea market and here is what came home with me.
One can’t have enough bling don’t you think? I love old pocket watches and have a small collection already.
Some doilies.
And this apron. I also found an old sleigh which I will use for my Christmas decoration.
Tomorrow my aunt from North Carolina will visit me and stay for a week. That will reduce my blogging time. Sorry for that – I will catch up with you soon.
Thank you so much for stopping by and for all your lovely comments. Have a wonderful Sunday.
Hugs and love,
