Flea Market Finds

Today trip to the Flea market resulted in only a few little finds, but since I've decided to resist buying any more suitcases or type trays the usual buys were off limits! There were chairs galore today for some reason, but I don't really need any more of those. Also it has been a bitterly cold day so a lot of the stallholders were packing up at lunch time.

 I got another green bottle to add to my collection, some numbers letterpress type for stamping onto price labels, a lovely old Christmas card and some Hornsea egg cups, which I am going to use to plant some tiny plants in.

Framed Moustache Artwork

My latest creation! This cute little unique framed artwork features a bushy moustache made from shrink plastic, and decorated with fun retro stripes.

The moustache is mounted on a brown kraft paper background and is framed by mountboard. The white wooden frame measures 11cm wide x 10cm high x 3.5cm deep. The moustache itself measures 3.5cm.

This would be an ideal little humorous gift for any male, especially if they're striving for a bushy moustache! Available here in my Love Local shop for £15.

Fabric covered notebooks

Having come across some rather dull and boring A6 and A5 hard backed notebooks I decided to brighten them up  using some of the fabric left over from making my Lampshades. I used some bondaweb to affix the fabric to the covers of the notebooks, and them I stuck in some colourful endpapers to neaten the look.

If you'd like to buy one they can be found on my Folksy shop. :)
