Flea Market Finds on Mother's Day.


Heres a quick look at just two of the lovely things I received for Mother's Day! This is the most gorgeous salt dough flower (she new I'd be very impressed with the 'merging of colours' on the petals!).


The most beautiful poem.


And heres my finds for this week. I thought this suitcase was a little unusual as its little more than half the size of a normal one. For some reason I thought it looked like a flight attendants bag from many years ago!


And some gorgeous retro fabric. The napkins in the front had never been used - they still had stickers on them!
For more Flea Market Finds head over to Sophie's and Happy Mother's Day!x

Lovely lovely card from your daughter Jennie. How wonderful to have love + you = the best thing in the world, written in your Mother's Day card. Made me tear up! So cute. Love your finds too. The suitcase is fab.

Such a beautiful poem...made me smile! Love your fabrics and I agree about the suitcase. It's probably jetted all over the world. Hope you have a super week :)

Splendiforous!! What a magical suitcase, it opens up and out pops an array of gorgeous fabric. Wow. I love your poem, how sweet & loving. Hope your day was too xo

Kelly said...

ooh lovely! Sounds like the perfect Mothers Day for you :D

Yes, very Pan Am. In the 60's/70's there was the Junior Flyers Club on the tele (don't even ask where I dredged this memorie from) with really cool little shoulder bags.
Your suitcase is so jet set.
