Dear readers and friends, the summer brought quite a few flea market excursions. One of my favorite things is to scour for treasures at flea markets and antique malls. I am always on the lookout for needlework items as well as unique flower frogs. My boys are also "hunters" Ever since they started watching Pickers on TV they are obsessed with flea marketing. These are some of the treasures that we came across.
Amber bowled flower frog set
Milk glass flower frog, rose embossed glass flower frog and a pink ceramic frog
The rose and pink were b-day gifts from my youngest sons
onyx glass frog and bowl set and a blue ceramic frog (a gift from my youngest)
carding paddles, antique oil can, wooden spindles and vintage trims ( one with music notes and the other with a kitchen theme -- too cute to pass up) My plan is to use the spindles for storing vintage laces and trims, and I am hoping to mount a needlework piece on the carding paddles.
I haven't been stitching a whole lot but hope to get back into it soon. I have done some halloween/fall stitching but can't share any of that yet as they are for exchanges.
Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and to my Jewish friends L'Shana Tovah. May your New Year be blessed with sweetness.
