Flea Market Finds-Kitsch, Bris Style and other stuff

Lots of little bits and pieces this week. Plus I am very proud of myself, I only spent one day visiting op-shops, and I had a chance to visit a motza that I don’t usually get to, but I remained strong, denying myself the impulse. I feel a better person for it. I do, I truly do. (she said, doth protesting too much!)

But before we get into all of that, I am pretty happy to announce that I am now a member of the Bris Style Team! They have gathered me into their arms and made me feel very welcome! Thank-you all for taking this little black duck in from the cold!  

Now back to the nitty and the gritty. Sparky rolled his eyes when he saw this one. It is a letter holder with a 3D Last Supper picture. Tres kitsch, but a great place to rest my address book.

Also an old Pascal lolly tin, and a kitsch koala spoon stand. It drives me crazy that people (no names) make a cuppa and leave the spoon on the counter, leaving sticky messes everywhere. Which resulted in the argument that the spoon rester has to be washed, so it doesn't make sense. Regardless, the spoon rester has stayed and WILL be used!

An old Australiana tablecloth in a great waffle weave, and with every Aussie animal imaginable, but somehow looking like some Arcadian English countryside.

More Kathie Winkle. I actually have a full six place setting of this design, but I broke two saucers recently…so…I thought…always need for more!

And lastly, some wonderful old carpentry tools. I’ll clean ‘em up a treat, give them a bit of oiling and hang them up on the wall.

Well, that is it for the Flea Market Finds this week in my little patch of paradise. Pop over the Sophies and have a gawk at everyone else’s treasures. Oh and one more thing, my internet is absolutely awful at the moment. Really, really slow plus we have had some kind of Trojan Horse that loads naked ladies on the screen, even when we haven't opened up the internet! I often try and leave comments on other blogs, but they just don't load...very frustrating. So lest you think I am being very rude and snobbish, I am trying to leave comments and visit everyone who visits me, I am just in a ghostly form at present. xxNick

    ban the nakeds; i'd say (or try to). no worries.

  4. My Gran would fight you for that letter holder - and it wouldn't be pretty.

    No kidding, if it's 3D or a hologram or glow in the dark (uh... make that especially if it's glow in the dark) & Jesus-related she's on it.

    Her room at night is like a haunted house fair-ground ride for athiests....
