These lovely leaves from a vendor at the same market.
I didn't spend much money, but got some great stuff. Three books, one for the little bird and two for me. A giant spool of pink yarn, two mini suitcases, my most expensive purchase, a package of paper doilies, aged to perfection.
A vintage runner and some lace and a damask napkin also beautifully aged.
Buttons? Of course, do you ever have enough?
Instant ancestors. A small slip of paper in the frame gave me these beautiful children's names. Edna , Pearl, and Helen Essex.
This french basket and napkin came from a shop in Galena, a gift from my sweetheart.
All this work, some one's labor and talent...
A little flannel slip, so simple and pretty.
It's the thrill of the hunt and the fun in finding a treasure. Have a great day.
