Yesterday I went to Cleburne to visit my cousin Patsy and we went to the flea market. They have a morning flea market every Wednesday. Some times you find a lot and sometimes not much. Yesterday we didn't find too much. Afterwards I went to an antique mall at Benbrook. They had a lot of beautiful things, but nothing I needed. Although, last week I went to a little antique mall in Hurst and found a lot of tatting and a couple of pieces of crochet with some rickrack attached to it. I love vintage laces, tatting and crochet. That's one of the thing I hoard.
This is the crochet and tatting. Lot of nice pieces. Most are about a yard long or more. The colors are nice too. I love pastels in these kinds of trims. They have some more, but I could only afford so much. Maybe I can go back and they will still have them after I make some more money.
And these are the things I found at the flea market. The fork is a money clip. I love it. The watch I want to alter and turn into a necklace. The stone is some kind of spider turquoise. At least that is what the man told me. Anyway I think it will look great wraped in some wire and made into a necklace or something. And the keys, they are adorable. They will look good on something. Maybe an alter bottle.
Thanks for stopping by I always enjoy your visit. Hope you have a wonderful day.
