Saturday's Flea Market Finds...

I found a lovely jar of buttons today.  I haven't found a jar for such a long time and as I shook the jar around, I could see some treasures.  Some very nice large shell buttons and lots of oldies but goodies.  There was even a pile of pink shell beads.  See them?  They look like rings.  I guess they were strung with a bead in the centre of each.  Pretty!
Some favourites!

And a lavender sachet, still in the package with the label..." Lavande de Provence... La broderie à la main."  Of course, Husband wanted to know what the awful smell was.  Lavender is just lost on him. 

Some beautiful soft yarn.  It was partially knitted into something odd and round which I undid.  I also found a great bundt pan but it was not that interesting and didn't seem to lend itself to an artsy bundt pan photo.

Actually, I was so focused on the next stop of the day that I did not spend too much time in the thrift store.  Here is just a wee sneak peak...more to follow tomorrow!!

And I will be linking up with Sophie's flea market finds later this evening.  Don't forget to check out all the fabulous finds!
