Flea Market Finds... always finding!!!

I love finding new crafty treats.  Sometimes I don't know what I'm going to do with them.  Which is a problem in itself.  Last week I did a huge clean up and found some things I'd found a while back in an op shop.  This week I returned them to that same op shop.  I don't know WHY I bought it in the first place.  Obsession comes to mind.

So I have been making a great effort to only buy stuff that I KNOW what I can make out of it!!!  AND WILL make it into that.... one day :)

So here are my latest finds.

Not a bad effort I say!

Oh, and I realised after writing this post, that I infact bought other stuff but forgot to photograph it because they were already in the washing pile.  One disadvantage to thrifting any sort of fabric - the smell!! Maybe next week!

Go here if you want to join in!
