apart from walking on the beach and swimming in Lake Huron I also went treasure hunting this past weekend and I was very lucky to have found some very neat pieces ~ some for me to keep as is and some to create with.
I found this neat tattered salt shaker just before went headed home again. It is actually really heavy you wouldn't think so just by looking at it. I almost didn't buy it but then I knew I would regret it in the end, so I did!
I also found a few new hat pins which now are going to find a home in their new stand aka saltshaker.
An old harp key and some vintage sleigh bells.
An old candle stick and ... half a hinge.
I just love the detail on the half hinge and the patina on both pieces.
An old string holder ~ I just have to find a place for it in my studio now and again I just love the detail and patina of this piece.
A very nice gentlemen at the out door market 'The Pinery' was so kind and sold me these 2 tiny fairy tale castles made from pewter. To give you an idea how small they are ...
... I placed one in front of a book page covered matchbox. Are you thinking what I am thinking?
I can see a new match box creation in my mind ~ something to do with a fairytale I think.
And last but not least ...
... a lovely vintage safety pin with a pretty rhinestone as decoration.
All in all it was a lovely weekend and I am busy again with yardwork and also making some new creations.
It would be so nice if you would visit me here at Todolwen soon again and until then ...
I hope you are well and life is treating you kind.
Have a peaceful and creative weekend,
