a couple of cute flea market finds

my friend and i went to the pasadena city college flea market last weekend. we got there kind of late and people were already packing things up, but i picked up a few cute goodies…

a clock for my kitchen. the lady totally lied and told me she plugged it in and it worked but it didn’t. i was able to use the clockworks from my old clock after a little drilling and gluing and cutting. they are both by general electric so the set-up was similar.

a sweet little painting from bavaria, it says 1950 on the back.

and this lovely tea towel that i couldn’t stop looking at. it looks hand printed. i had to buy it for the inspiration.

    Great finds. Do you have to pack and rotate some of your great stuff or do you have it all out? Love the t-towel, can’t wait to see what you create!

    haha! i should probably rotate it but i have it all out. i need lots of visual stimulation!!
