I dragged my sleepy self off to the flea market today---the big [good] market but it seems that early morning thundershowers rained it out.
Vintage beads from a fav seller....
Frosted pinks and rough pearls; carved ivory, coral bits...to be mixed with a few precious "seaglass" beads (recycled glass, handmade in Africa)....
for summery bracelets like these:
One of my bracelets was just featured in an etsy treasury! here
And now I know why I needed all those doll dishes a few weeks ago...perfect bead holders.
|antique lace and linen heart|
w/enamel lily of valley brooch[near mint cond.]
This large heart, below, could even be a wedding ring holder for the little ringbearer to carry down the aisle! (I would just tack on a ribbon to tie the rings on securely.)
|antique white on white linen heart |
with iris/fleur de lys hand embroidery
rhinestone iris brooch, near mint.
|blue and white pottery shard, recent treasure-Free!|
gone to the beach.....
