I never walk away from a flea market empty handed. My favorite finds are of course fabrics, buttons and trims. However, books and magazines can be a great place to find creative inspiration too.
I found a few of these recent Husflid magazines at a recent flea market and thought you might enjoy taking a peek into one too.
These little carved figures have such character. It makes me want to learn to whittle.
I just had to show you these hens and chicks. I did a bit of embroidery today while lying out in the back yard catching the ever weakening rays of the sun. It was just the usual, some french knots on my latest batch of matryoshka dolls. Lilly found a little green caterpillar to play with and amused herself for quite some time with him while I stitched. We played a game of go-fish together after I cleaned out several closets and cupboards. Now there is a stack of outgrown clothes, etc. ready for giving away. It is the official changing of the seasons. Then I stitched again this afternoon sitting next to my son and helping him struggle through a mountain of homework. The poor guy was in tears over not having any time to play outside.
The children are all nestled in bed and I have a few minutes to spare! Tonight I am finally listing some new needlebooks in my shop, one with pink ribbon and another in green. They have been sold out for some time. I will try to keep things better stocked now!
