Collectorama This Saturday, Rain or Shine!!

Here's a few of my vintage items I'll be selling at collectorama this Saturday.  I have everything from buttons, old patterns, enamelware, old tins, books, doileys, tablecloths.  It won't matter if it rains as I will be undercover.

It's on from 7.30am to 2.30pm at Nambour Showgrounds.  If you love old treasures then this is the place for you as there's over 150 dealers with all their treasures!

Hope to see you there!

It's Raining Again!!

Sadly as it's raining this afternoon I won't be attending this Friday nights market.  I have been inside all this week nursing a cold so I didn't think it very wise to go out in the cold, wet weather tonight.

I had just finished this little upcycled bag to take with me as well.  Nevermind I'll try & list it in my etsy shop tonight.  There's gremlins in my computer at the moment so hopefully I'll be able to get it done!

Hope you all have a lovely weekend!

Lovely Laces

These are a few of the gorgeous vintage laces I found at this weekend's bear show at Toowoomba.  I didn't sell a lot but had such fun buying.  The blue trim is so sweet, it is finely pleated & then has a dainty lace edge (perfect little bear collar I'm thinking).  The 3 vintage buckles were another great find.  One is a lovely green bakelite, one gorgeous diamontes & the other more of an inlay diamonte.  Most of the laces came from a dollmakers estate.  I'm sure to treasure them as much as she did & hope to use them in lots of upcoming creations.

I hope you've all had a great weekend.  Still perfect weather here in Brisbane!

Vintage Kitchen Table - Latest Garage Sale Find

This is my great find from this morning's garage sale.  It's a lovely old 40's or 50's chrome legged table with a gorgeous blue laminex top (some marks on it though).  Now what to do, sell it or get it done up to use as a sewing table (it's very heavy & sturdy)??
I did find some other lovely old wall mirrors but I'll clean them before I do show & tell!

Hope you're all having an awesome weekend.  It's such beautiful weather here in Brisbane, so far it looks like it's going to be a great day for Mothers Day.  I'm heading out to Petrie Markets to sell some of my collectables so if you feel like a day out come & say hello!

Gorgeous Journals

These are the latest journals I have been working on.  I'm loving the fact I can get to use some of my lovely old laces & interesting bits & pieces on them.
This one I have wrapped in an old sewing pattern for a friend's 50th Birthday pressie.  I crafted the tag by dipping it in parisan essence & then stamping it with a Paris postmark, I then added a vintage stamp.  I'm really pleased how it turned out.

I think I'm becoming addicted to making them lol!

I'm hoping to list some on etsy later in the day.

Have a great week!
