flea market finds....

....have had a lovely op shoppy time this week....
.....found this blanket which is a nice pram size for my new baby arriving in September! Thought these lovely bright colours would be good for boy or girl.....
.....some pretty vintagey necklaces. The one on the right is made in Austria. Thought that was quite special...
.... a little enamel pot which I totally don't need but totally wanted and that wins every time....
.....and a sweet little embroidered cloth which has lovely colours in.

Pop over to Sophie for some more fab finds.....

my creative space.....

I'm quite liking the 'fabric framed in embroidery hoop' look that seems to have become pretty popular of late. I found this old olive green hoop in an op shop a while back along with a pair of baby shorts made from the above fabric. I chopped them up and put the two together. LOVE this fabric how sweet is it!
These embroidered sheets were unearthed at another op shop fairly recently. I loathed to chop them up but figured I wouldn't get much use out of them as sheets so have decided to frame the individual designs. This cat is Kitty's (ha!) new bedroom door plaque. I also have a cute bunny design to frame too from the same sheet. Very cute.
My girlfriend gave Kitty this Cath Kidston fabric when I was back in London last year. She told Kitty (who had no idea) that it would remind her of her mummy's roots! So I popped it in a hoop and put it up in her bedroom. She loves pointing out the London buses!

This really wasn't that much of a creative post but I'm sure there's plenty that are over here at Kootoyoo.....
