Vintage silk threads - I can never have enough of this, and it is surprising how quickly I get through these in my work!
I purchased 5 lots of these, all in delicious colours. They haven't turned up yet, but once they do, I will take some nice arty photos of them!
The next item I purchased is for an artisan fair I am part of on 25th May at Blackborough in Devon - see here https://www.facebook.com/BlackboroughArtisanMarket?fref=ts. I needed something to display my tiny makes on - like the buttons and tiny brooches. So, I thought that a vintage print tray would be ideal! This is the one I purchased, that I am waiting to arrive as we speak!
I am planning to line all the compartments with parts of pages from vintage books. I can't hardly wait for it to turn up so I can have a play.
Last but not least, I simply fell in love with these beautiful 1950's French matchboxes!! *sigh* ..... how could I not purchase these?
......and this is one of the little pieces of mixd media art I made with one of them:
