Well anyone'd think it's Spring round here with the amount of florals l've got going on in this post, but we seem to be enjoying an "Indian Summer" so (in the garden) l'm still enjoying roses, japanese windflowers.... both white and double pink, as well as velvety salvias and the ever reliable geraniums.
The statice flowers were bought at the market last week, the colours were my inspiration for this post.
These flowers are called everlastings 'cos the petals are crisp and papery. If you hang them upside down and dry them out.....they'll keep their colours and last for years.
The fabric you see is an old brunch coat (summer dressing gown) prob'ly 60's, (does anyone else remember them). Practical l guess... but NOT flattering....though the colours in this one are pretty.
A couple of lucky?? buddha's...they looked so happy, chubby and relaxed l couldn't leave them behind at the oppy, and Avon cameo stick pin.
We all love to get to the market don't we....and l go whenever l can. Last weekend the weather was great so there were lots of stalls to nosey through. Found this awesome British flag t-shirt for a $1.00 and the stripey trims....to add to my other bunch of trims that never get used.....but hey.. they're there...(grin).
One of my paintings is in the background. lt was painted during my dot/stroke phase..... and really...l've had more painting phases than the moon.
Also found was this pair of bud vases....$1.00 each. Even though l'll sell them on at my next market stall, l wanted to live with those pretty bluebirds at least for a little while. Here they are with a deer bud vase l already had.
l've been after a Royal (commemorative) cup for ages, but haven't been able to find one..... but almost as good was this Buckingham Palace souvenir glass l found at the market...Still in its original box, wrapped in crown tissue paper....cost $3.00, not at all old but still nice.
How sweet are those birds... and not a broken wing in sight.
and last but not least l found this pretty old diamente hair comb...a bit bent up, but only a $1.00.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend coming up....thanks for popping over for a peek.
Til next time,
