Well, most of you already know that I go to the flea market on Sundays. Today is an exception, I am in the flow of creating some earrings and didn't want to interfere with that process. But, so as not to disappoint anyone, I have some things to share that I found during earlier excursions (after all, I have been a flea market addict much longer that I have had a blog!!)
Do you see that bracelet? Those are real bugs (not altered in any way, they are naturally that colour; I'm not quite sure exactly when this was the craze, possibly in the 40's. This isn't the first I have seen) !!
various pieces of amber
I am still trying to find more information about these pieces. I keep coming across them. Either the clover shape (these can either be in the form of a lapel pin or have the pictured fixture which I believe was worn on a leather watch band) oder the stylized flowers (which are often on this brown thread that looks like silk). I have no idea what they are about. Which only makes them all the more interesting.
Oh, and my garden still has blooms to share:
Poppy - papaver orientale, "Patty's Plum"
This is a wild rose with delightful tiny little white flowers, that is now trying to climb into the cherry tree. In the fall, this will be full of beautiful tiny little rose hips, which are fantastic for decorating.
Invasion of the wild strawberries
English Rose - I don't know the name of this one. I ordered Golden Celebration, a golden yellow rose, which this definitely is not. But it is a beautiful rose all the same.
Have a wonderful Sunday! I am going back to my earrings.
