New friends and old buttons…

 

buttons

For the past few months I have had the extreme pleasure of participating at a local Flea Market with my good friend Marilyn. We’ve had so much fun-designing,creating, re-creating and starting all over again! At the end of every market weekend we are both ready to give it all up-almost! But neither of us can quite throw in the towel-it’s just to much fun-once we get rested.

I think the most enjoyable part has been meeting new friends that share our interest in  ….well whatever our interests are!!! ***I’ll be the first to admit that we are a bit odd in our mix-eclectic ,I’d say.              

  e·clec·tic (-kl k t k) adj.

1. Selecting or employing individual elements from a variety of sources, systems, or styles

One of those new friends is Tanya, and recently she stopped by while I was working to brighten my day with a lovely gift! june stuff 011

It was an Inspiration Bundle!!!

A lovely linen jumper(that will be redesigned),wonderful flat eyelet lace,a collar edged with fantastic cotton lace and  a lovely blue shimmer fabric,that will reappear as  a shabby flower corsage,hopefully-and it was all wrapped in a narrow lace with the lovely old buttons attached  to top it off!

I hardly know Tanya, but how well she seems to know me-all my favorites wrapped up in one small parcel!!! SWEET!!!

As this July Market date nears the inspiration seems to be building(as always at the last minute!!) and time is growing short-as always!!! I can hardly wait to get set up again –visiting with our fun new friends and selling our wares to help pay for making more of them!!! Come see us if you can!!

July 10th & 11-at the Sulphur Fairgrounds on Lewis Street.
