flea market finds!

After many, many months of reading Sophie's blog 'Her Library Adventures', we're finally taking the plunge and joining in on her 'Flea Market Finds' :)
Op shopping/flea marketing is one of our absolute favourite things to do. Not only does it inspire & motivate us to make new creations, but we get to find amazing goodies...some days more so than others.
Today I (Krystal) would like to share with you all some treasures I've discovered the past couple of weeks...

Uber sweet vintage buttons. They were all in a jar & had no price, I asked the shop lady & she said $3!! I was stoked! I cant wait to use these in some upcoming projects. Pretty plate they are on i found months ago, cant remember where though.

Excuse the lack of ironing, but i was taking photos on limited time whilst Felix was eating his lunch. This is a scarf i picked up at my local Salvos for 50cents. I'm planning on either framing it, or popping it on a canvas. The words are so, so cute!

Left pic: Some lovely coloured necklaces, pretty doiley, and a cute ceramic elephant money box. I seem to be collecting ceramic ornaments similar to this little one lately.
Right pic: Mustard yellow vase & a blue scalloped ceramic container. This is my most favourite find of the year so far i believe. I'm still unsure as to what I'm going to use it for though...jewellery, cookies, buttons?
