Treasure Hunt / Flea Market Finds


I didn't get to do too much treasure hunting this week but I did have some treasure from a few weeks ago tucked away. 
Amanda Dear found this French copy of Bella by Jean Giraudoux in a used bookstore while she was adventuring in France last month. 
I love the cover, it reminds me of a Modigliani painting. 
I found this pair of elbow length opera / burlesque dancer gloves at an estate sale a few weeks ago. 
I wish wish wish they fit me but they are too small (so they will be in the shop soon). 
I adore their pearl buttons.   


While at the estate sale, I also found this amazing red rose tablecloth.  It is the perfect size for a picnic table and I can't wait to test it out. 
I also can't wait to use it as a photo backdrop, so pretty.
 

While walking the Bono Baby the other day, I noticed that one of our neighbors was throwing away some treasure.  I admit I did a little bit of digging but I found this embroidered tablecloth and napkins with red trim. 
They aren't in the best shape but I have big plans to use them for a project. 
The red trim is precious. 

Wishing you a lovely week. 

always,
Fritzi Marie

Your neighbor was throwing them away? Thank goodness you rescued them! Even if I don't need something, I've been known to rescue tossed out items to donate to the thrift.
