Flea Market Finds

I'm quite happy with this weeks op shop finds.  They all came from my local hospice shop, which is so busy these days, I don't seem to find the treasures I once did.  Firstly I found the two pieces of antique embroidered cloth. They have such pretty pictures and seem to be done by the same person, as all the colours used are identical.  I plan to incorporate them into some fabric bunting flags.

I was on my way to the car when I spotted the enamel slotted spoon in a bin of kitchenware.  I have a couple of different sized soup ladles in the same blue and white, so if I change my kitchen colour scheme they'll look great together.  I could hang them on my utensil holder I showed you a while back.

For more flea market finds, pop over to Sophie's.

See you back here next week

Sarah :)

ps.  Have a few pairs of shoes on sale in my trademe shop if you're interested.
