Flea Market Finds

handmade old prim Camel cooky cutter
 Oh boy, I got all involved with pumpkins and stuff and never showed off my recent-est flea market treasures.

So here goes....

Lots of little things, mostly for Christmas crafts. Won't these chandelier crystal drops make amazing icicles?

I also do reverse decoupage on some of the flat ones....

I use vintage images like these. Great postcards! See, even some turquoise skies there?

And vinatge jewelry...

Some to re-utilize:

Some to maybe sell...?

Don't these look just like tiny cupcakes? So cuuute!

A few autumn-toned Staffordshire transferware plates for my collection...

I especially like this black plate...I think it is very old---pre 1840?, note the makers mark and decorated reverse.

I also love all its cracks and nicks and chips...for myself, the shabbier the better, though I just KNOW I am supposed t buy only pristine. Investment, you know. (not!).

Big flea market Sunday! I am looking forward to the drive through the marshes and then the parkway with hopefully colorful leaves!
