Sunday, flea market and work in progress

flea market finds
Yesterday I finally made it to the flea market again. And I was lucky to find anything!! This was the big flea market and I can't remember when I last had such a "bad catch"! Just a couple of brass filigree buttons and some old lace...

Captain and Socks
Two of my kitties relaxing Sunday afternoon...

This is what my sketches for work in progress look like - if I actually sketch something. But this is just the original idea and not fully thought out. I just let the process take over. These are for Moth and Cobweb.

work in progress: Moth
As I mentioned, I am working on more necklaces inspired by A Midsummer Nights Dream. This will be Moth.

work in progress: Cobweb
This is a version of Cobweb, another Midsummer Nights Dream inspired piece. Cobweb is going to end up with more than one necklace, it seems.

work in progress: Poppy
A poppy flower that will turn into a necklace. I made a few of these in copper last year and I just really like them. I have some in progress in copper too.

You've been busy!! Isn't there a sense of disappointment when you go to a BIG flea market after having missed a few weekends and then you come away with so little? But that's the nature of the game I suppose...and who knows what goodies will be there next time??

I love your WIP...from the sketches to the almost finished projects. I love the colours and the textures to both Moth and Cobweb and the poppy is amazing!!

Such pretty and unique ideas! I love the inspiration behind the pieces and peeking into your sketchbook. I don't always sketch, but I love it when I do, as I always feel compelled to get it down on paper. I am often surprised then that it turns out true to what I sketched. I think I need to do more of that!
Lazing in the sun looks like heaven!
Enjoy the day!

Your new work is fantastic! And it is such a treat peeking into your sketchbook and seeing how the work progresses. Just lovely. And speaking of lovely, your garden is so lush and beautiful.

Beautiful! I love that poppy you made too. Everytime I see you mention flea market it makes me think that I should visit ours...if only is wasn't so hot!
