Sunday flea market and other things

This weekend the weather is just glorious. The sun is shining and it is very mild for this time of year (I seem to recall there were days this summer, that were colder...). They are predicting a real drop in the temperature this coming week, so it was doubly enjoyable to wander over a couple of flea markets today.


This little photocopied catalogue is full of interesting drawings.


Some inexpensive tools to use for texturing my metal.


A vintage carved horn rose.


Some more colourful thread for my stash.


Beautiful antique buttons of metal and glass. A really good find!


Max gave me this wonderful patchwork embroidered jacket yesterday.


A sneak peak of something I am working on at the moment.

I hope you are all having a wonderful Sunday!

Die Knöüfe sind traumhaft und Dein kleiner Ausblick sieht sehr, sehr spannend aus. Freu mich schon auf das fertige Stück.

Score!!! Yes, the buttons are great, so rustic looking but with the little rhinestones, and the thread is beautiful, so vibrant. That jacket is gorgeous, I could stare at it all day long! Way to go Max! I can see the sun in the lighting on your pictures. Looking forward to seeing it here again one day...

The buttons you got at the market are just lovely. And so is the jacket Max gave you. Is it old or hand made? Enjoy your weather well it last I know it gets very cold where you live.
