Flea market harvest

Today DH and I drove over 200 km. (128 miles)to visit a flea market. They are seldom were we live.
I had made a "shopping" list. It had to be worth to drive that far!
1e; Old books to use for future journals.
2e; Old doilies to cut up.
Then I found two candlesticks and two dishes to make two cake-dishes.( maybe I will show the result later)
And 6 lovely Norwegian made ( Egersund) cake plates with white wild roses.
I am happy with my bargains.
The money I spend goes to charity.
You can click on the photo 2x ! to see it all :)

Dear Ati
What a wonderful collection from your flea market!
I can see there will be more journals to make and also some lovely embroidered linens, very pretty.

I also love the china bits!

Isn't it wonderful to find such treasures? They spark the imagination, and create new possibilities. I think it's wonderful when the money goes to charity. Enjoy your finds.
