I very seldom shows you my fleamarket finds,
but just had to let you see thise cute little canvas childs shoes.

Look how worn out they are- I could not leave them, but took them home with me,
together with the beautiful photoes, and the rose.

Also This tarnished little metal bowl,the string of crystal pearls,and the
medal, which is an old piece ,used to be sewn into the coats ,so when they were
hung somewhere, they would be recognised again because of the initials  etched into it.

Two beautiful plates

A top made in wonderful ...can`t remember what this is called :-)

Little embroidered pieces

and this fun sewing journal, where a clever woman have 
drawn and cut out the patterns in mini format--

and written down the measures and sizes
Isen`t it i very beautiful work?

This was some of my week-end finds-
I love fleamarketing, so it was a joy to find those little treasures.

I hope you are all ,my dear friends, being well  &,feeling good ,wherever you reads this post,
and wisches you a happy week- and august.
I hope you are having a wonderful tuesday.
Thankyou for being in my life.

Hugs and love

Sikken en dejlig loppetur du har været på, de små sko er så kære, jeg tror jeg havde nogle ligene da jeg var barn, og lige så slidte,dengang sled man sit tøj op. knus morkaren.
P.S. heder dine perler ikke lystre?

Hello Dear Friend,
What special little treasures you came home with - those worn little shoes so cute to pass up, the lovely
tarnished bowl, the beads, the gorgeous guipure lace and embroidered doilies and the sewing journal - what a treat to find that! It is so special!
I know just what Dawn means when she says it is hard to part with them or even use them in creations when all you want to do is just sit and admire them!
I am so very happy for you sweetie!
Love and hug you too,
Suzy xox

Dorthe such amazing finds. I remember you say before that you love to collect old children's shoes so this is very special for you to have discovered. I love the rose and the cabinet cards and the top with the appearance of fancy lace.
Beautiful treasures and glad you had a lovely time.

Oh..how lovely each precious item is! Those dear little shoes have such a sweetness to them! I can only imagine the darling tiny feet that gave them such wear and tear.
