Recent Treasure

Here are some of my favourite finds from the last few weeks....

Sooty annual from 1966...



 




  
 
A beautiful frou-frou umbrella...

 ...with a lovely carved handle

So lucky to find this little Swiss clock at an oppie in the Blue Mountains

Cute fairy drawing in recycled wood frame from a craft shop in Leura

An old music stand found at a 'magpie market' on our way to the Blue Mountains...

...which I am using as a book stand...



 
Gorgeous china flower brooch

 A handpainted lady with a bag skirt in lovely old chintz-think I will use as a rag bag

Vintage embroidery transfers



An old suitcase...

...lined with lovely paper...

Will be great as a display prop for the markets

And this delightful painted picture

Speaking of markets,I have the Olive Tree Market on again this Saturday,so must away & sew!!

Hi Ingrid , found your link from Le Bons Bay News, loving the Sooty Annual....I have some Rupert Annuals from when I was young, still have a sneaky read of them sometimes.....the oldies are always the best.
