Flea Market Finds

Those in the know will already appreciate my love of flea markets and op shops.  Today I thought I would join in with Sophie and see what others have been finding.

This frame is destined to become part of a photo wall.  My idea is to mix some silver frames with a variety of wooden frames all painted in the same shade of white
(my favorite white, Antique White USA from Dulux).

 (ah, ghosting in the reflection is me and my bad hair day look)
This happy mushroom print from the fabric section - I am sure I have seen it elsewhere - does anyone know what collection it belongs to?

And these doilies are making my day everytime I walk past them.  I love the lime green and duck egg blue.  I am thinking of incorporating them into a cushion for my bright green sofa bed.
And crochet hooks, because you can never have too many of those!
Happy Sunday.  It is not too late to enter the give away - I will pick a winner tonight!
