Flea Market Finds ... gorgeous cross stitch, crochet & sticks of inches ...

Hoover cushions aren't they gorgeous ?
I'd pay money to know where she scored the fabric ...
some things people just don't tell ... 
fabulous imagination at work with an old beach umbrella frame ...
hanging tiny pot plants and looking so cute ...
treasures abound ...
hessian never looked so good ...
My finds =
A stunning linen, cross stitched, supper cloth ...
that will become something beautiful but for now I'll contemplate ...
AND ...
four carpenter's rulers ...
the kind that my dearly departed chippie used to call "sticks of inches" ...
to add to my collection ... 
made for a very happy, sunny Sunday!

'sticks of inches'. it sounds like it means more than just a ruler...

Mmmm...wonder if the Hoover fabric is from curtains(or similar) from a Hoover promotion? maybe?
Your supper cloth is a definite gem Cherie. Lucky, lucky! Also loving those "sticks of inches"(wonderful term) too. Something about them aways calls me to collect/buy them. Haven't succumbed yet though! lol. I did manage to pick up the smallest cutest little one last year at an op shop of all places. It looks like ivory, but probably not, and is only about 4 inches long folded. Too cute. x
