Flea Market Finds


These are my finds for the last couple of weeks. I found this teensy pretend handbag at our local op shop. There were two others very similar to this. But we only got this one, to see if it was a suitable size for the dolls.


It is perfect on this doll. We went back to get the other two , but they had gone of course!


I also found this wooden lamp base. I'm hoping to get a suitable shade and cover it with my all time fav vintage fabric(thats it behind the lamp).


Some cute embroidery and fabric.



Vintage brooches.


And this fab necklace. I'm not sure if its going to be for a doll or me yet!

A big thank you to Kelly for sending me some lovely embroideries and to Sarah for all the gorgeous vintage buttons - thank you so much you guys!

To have a nosey at some more Flea Market finds, pop over to Sophie's!

How perfect is the little handbag! Sorry you missed out on the others..I LOVE the fabric for your lamp shade, the lamp is going to be stunning! Everything else is gorgeous, the little bow brooches remind me of hair clips I used to have when I was little, only to be worn on very special occassions...

The lamp and fabric are a beautiful match. Make sure you post a photo of the finished lamp and shade!

Tracey said...

Really lovely poppy embroidery top right. Would you consider posting a tutorial of how to cover a lampshade? I have 2 which I'd looooove to cover, they have a smaller top and larger bottom so can't quite work out how to make them :)

Thea said...

I love the wooden lamp base too. I'm sure you will find a lampshade in an op shop. I see lots of them in my local place. Good luck!

sue said...

That fabric will look sensational as a lampshade! You found lots of lovely stuff this week - must be fun "accessorizing" your dolls - you are a doll stylist really!

Steph said...

What yummy, yummy finds! That little wee handbag is brilliant and looks so lovely slung over your little madams shoulder. Hope you have a super week :)

Skye said...

Estelle said...

I'm a bit of a fan of that lamp, nice one!

At least you got the best of the tiny handbags. Maybe you can figure out how to copy it for the other dolls.
I also find the green necklace most attractive.
