Some new pretties.....

Went back to the flea yesterday for the first time this season...my heart skipped a beat (get it?!) when I saw this heart-shaped beauty of a pin cushion. I have a small collection of them now but am so incredibly picky with what I choose. This one is large, shabby, has ruffles and velvet....in other words, it's perfect. I added the very old embroidered sacred heart that I found on ebay. I won't be using this pin cushion for it's intended use, it has a small loop on the back so I'll be hanging it in a prominent place where I can gaze at it every day and even pin pretty little things to it that have meaning for me. Sort of like my very own tiny inspiration board....:).


I also found this lovely piece (from the same vendor) that was made in Italy. My dh wants me to keep this, it's very old and will look great with my other religious artifacts that I've collected.
Another heart-shaped item, isn't that how those things seem to go?

Check out this cute little box of envelopes, it has 11 of them left inside.......I'm loving the graphics on this. It's listed in my Etsy.


This beauty is listed as well, I love the pansies on this pretty album, and the pages inside are the most beautiful shade of robin's egg blue.
It was fun going back to the flea again, I've missed it!
I also found a wonderful set of Singer sewing library booklets that are from the 1930's......also in my shop.
Hope you all had a marvelous weekend and are ready for the busy week ahead!!
Thanks for visiting!
