Flea Market Finds - Shades of Miss Havisham

My computer is still on the go slow, but the naked ladies have gone thanks to the purchase of a new Norton.

I am playing again with Sophie over at Her Library Adventures. Just a couple of things were found this week.

Firstly my very excellent olde brief case...all leather. It is a bit battered and needs a some TLC, but it is perfect to keep everything organised. I wasn't sure where to put it in this house that is beginning to burst at the seams with all of the paraphenalia that I am collecting. I tried two places where it looked ever so chi chi, but unfortunately where feet seemed to trip over. After much deliberation on my part, I have decided that it looks just right inside the front door. (Why is this? Did Mr Brady put his case down inside the front door?) I think it will live there for quite a while gathering a shroud of dust, because I just don't seem to get around to my many makeovers.

Speaking of shrouds. Here's a beauty! A fly covering with gorgeous little crocheted ladies. I baked a whole lot of patty cakes for a workshop my daughter hosted to assist in her HSC art work yesterday. Very Miss Havisham. You can see some of the works in the background. She wants to make 150 figures from clay, so I think I will be baking a few dozen patty cakes over the holidays. Although there aren't that many bugs around this time of the year, the covering gives the cakes a certain regal air!


  1. for sure (the regal air), and yumm! underneath all that... :)
    happy baking to you.

  2. I love the briefcase. Very chic! x

  3. I know what you mean about gathering dust - I have stuff like that too merrily gathering dust round the house. Loving those cakes by the way!

  4. Gorgeous finds, love that brief case...
