SPIRIT





Just had to share these photos of the jackpot I hit at the flea last weekend. This is the absolute truth......I visit one woman who has a combination of booths. One is jam packed with household items and jewelry, the other side is all vintage clothes, and material, bedspreads, purses, shoes, curtains, etc. I am forever torn between buying jewelry items or things for my house that I don't NEED, but WANT! My next visit I am going to try to treat my self to household things I like, but it is soo soo hard to spread the money!
Chris is her name, and I can tell she has been on the lookout for me because this time, as you can see, she has some of the most awesome religious pieces I have ever seen, and I am currently using them in some projects, again, trying not to keep for myself. I feel so connected when I work with these pieces. They are a part of my spirit, and I look forward to touching them and hoping someone else who may buy jewelry with these included can feel the same understanding that I do.
I also grabbed the cute quilted tray to stash them in!
Thanks for visiting, and taking the time to comment, I really appreciate that.

I am totally digging the perspective on the last shot. Lots of treasure there! I am on the hunt for flea market finds... old floral jewelry. I am in a gallery exhibit in May and have to get crackin! I have to interpret four poems into jewelry and for one I am doing a vintage floral theme. Enjoy the day!

Wowsa, Sharito - look at those treasures!!! Such unusual pieces, so awesome! Can't wait to see what you do with them.
Yes, flea marketing is always full of decisions - there are so many gorgeous things, I usually leave many great finds behind, because I really can't get them all... sigh.

What beautiful things, our markets don't have the variety that yours do. I adore putting old stuff into jewellery. Have fun. I know what you mean about wanting to keep things for yourself, I'm always concerned other people won't appreciate the memories old pieces hold.
