flea market finds and SPRING.

.
here are some of our latest flea market finds...

we bought loads of old prints from 1825, they are great from taking photos of our jewellery on.
and a very old and very broken paper fan, possibly Japanese? I like the flowers on it.

and a nice little leather suitcase with lovely compartments inside, to be added to the Bucket Tree soon.

also, thought i'd update you on the progress of my living jewellery display:

nearly all of the bulbs have come out except the hyacinths, those tiny daffodils smell like wee, not having much luck with fragrance in the workshop these days.

    sorry about the smelly daffodils. hopefully the hyacinths' fragrance will cover that up once they open. they smell so pretty.

  5. I always enjoy seeing what you pick up at the markets and you have the most clever jewelry display ideas.

    If you ever decide to sell that starfish print please let me know. I have a vintage Nautical-themed bathroom and where it would fit perfectly!

  6. Ooo more wonderful botanical prints! All those flowers look very pretty indeed, like a chunk of outdoors straight into your workshop. (pity about the smell!)
