Flea Market finds

On Friday morning my Mum and I headed off to Ipswich to go to check out a few things going on. We first headed to Handmade Heaven where Mum made a few purchases from these gorgeous ladies. We then headed up the road to St Pauls Church where they were having a small quilt show. My Aunt had a quilt in the Qld Quilters challenge. I wish I had of taken my camera! There was a little church stall of handmade goodies out the front that had some very cute items for sale. I simply could not resist this tea cosy and little cupcake! Tea and cupcakes anyone?

My flea market find of the week came about as we stopped into a little coffee shop on our way back to the car. In the coffee shop she had vintage knick knacks displayed and I noticed price tags on them.Now I have never been drawn to anything like this before, but when I saw it, I simply couldn't resist! $5.00. I don't know really what it would be used for, but to me it's saying pincushion. I'll have a fiddle and see what it looks like.

And, I can't resist having one more cute puppy shot. This is Millie in her little crate saying "please let me out!!".

Awww Milie, what a cutie you are!

The tea cosy and the dish are gorgeous too. I do love all things birdie and think the pincushion idea is a great one.

Was that the 150th celebrations that you went to? I was in Ipswich yesterday, seeing family. Didn't go into town though.
