On Saturday Morning our local Retirement Village hosted a Trash and Treasure Market and an Open Day. I have been to a few before and there is always a treasure or two to be found. The ladies are lovely to chat with and keen to show their new items they have crocheted, or jams and jellies they have made.
I found these gorgeous Vintage Hanley plates. Just perfect to use for lunch. Six dinner plates and six side plates for 20 cents each! Bargain.
There was a barometer underneath the tables without a price. So, I asked one of the ladies how much it was and she gave it to me for free as they had just dropped it and one of the hands had fallen off. It didn't matter, as it was immediately appealing to me and it would be easy enough to put a new mechanism in it.
Look where it was made....an added bonus for me as I am a bit of a lover of all things French.
Then it was time to create some more floral loveliness and these florals are what I came up with to add to my ETSY store.
So enjoying sewing these cushion covers from my stash of vintage and vintage inspired floral fabrics. Such a joy!
