Our First Flea Market Trip Of 2013 ..

Hello my dear friends,

at last this past Sunday my daughters and I headed out to a flea market that we always visit for the first time this year and it was so nice. The weather was great ~ lots of sunshine and warmth. We spend time together laughing and talking and I was so lucky to find a few new treasures too. I am already putting my creative mind to what I might make out of my findings.

And these are my new treasures ...

... 2 lovely old door knobs ~ the left one has bits of  neat pink paint still on it.

A vintage piece form an oil lamp.

Very neat keys ...
a tatty old hinge and a few old thimbles ...

... and finally a pale blue jar.
 I have come up with an idea for the keys already and the old oil lamp part too and the old jar is going to become my penny jar ~ I have started collecting pennies lately. All that's left are the other bits and pieces that I will have to still think about.
Do pop back some time ~  maybe I will have a new creations to share with you by then.
I hope you are well and life is treating you kind my dear friends.
Have a peaceful and creative day,
Karen B.
