antique junk

.
recently at the market, we found {amongst a lot of other stuff we bought} this lovely jug to keep flowers in at our workshop. I'm really taken with the fern decoration, nice!

also, we found an amazing deck of 1900s {or there-abouts} unused playing cards. They are hilarious, so thick and impossible to shuffle.

this is actually just one deck!
We are going to use them for display in our jewellery shop, as I am no gambler!

  9. I love your antique finds, especially the jug! Things were so much more special back then - I guess like your jewellery hand made things are life's little treasures, mass production is so very wrong...
