flea market treasures
Another trip to a flea market today and I found some lovely chandelier prisms and some beautiful antique brass buttons, as well as some vintage lace.
BTW, this flea market was in Ingolstadt, a town that isn't very far away; situated on the banks of the (blue) Danube (yes, that Danube, but don't let them fool you, the water isn't blue) and this is also the place where Mary Shelley had Frankenstein create his monster, at the then famous university of Ingolstadt.

I also enjoy hunting for tools at the flea market. I just love those hammers!
My husband is as crazy about tools as I am. He has been rummaging through his workshop to find tools that are suitable for the small scale work I am doing (he prefers to work on a larger scale). I asked him to build me a tool to use for dapping sheet metal and he did! It's that piece to the right. He also altered an old hammer for me. What a guy!

Will you take a look at this? He made this for me yesterday, a dapping tool made of hardwood. Isn't it stunning?
BTW, may I introduce you to this one in a million guy? My husband Max.
