RECENTLY







Recently, as in this past weekend, I went to the flea market to visit my favorite stand. She is really the only lady I visit, and I don't mind! I didn't get a lot of things , but what I got I am in love with. Briana and I fell in love with this vintage piece of material, and I am thinking I am going to make a kitchen valance with it. Lately I have this thing for red..red in home decor, not really jewelry, my red in jewelry turns more to burgundy, but I have broken out a bit with my Happy bracelet a few posts ago! I fell in love with the old red tin still holding the talc inside, and yes, it still has fragrance, mellow, but nice. I have a few old french perfume containers like this that I love....just because. Same for the buttons, I have tons, but these are just so cute, and the patina can never be duplicated. Love that old pin too! I found a beautiful strand of tiny garnets, and a funky strand of amber that really need to lose the gold! I have loads of ideas brewing already! Hope you enjoyed my simple little tour!
Wishing you all a beautiful Eater , holiday, and weekend! Thank you so much for visiting!

The hunt for small treasures that bring joy and have meaning is so much more fun than going to some big shopping mall and buying something new. I know you will create some lovely pieces with all these bits you gathered. Best wishes and blessings, Tammy
