Flea Market Finds = rug canvas + knit needles timber box + tortoiseshell + teeny tins ...


The roll of rug making canvas ...
 is a metre wide by about 15 metres ...
that will be used for a creation after June.

The Knitting Needles box ...
well, you know how I love a timber box ...
cost was $10 for both.

The  teeny tins are all from online purchases ...
they're for future projects too! 

The yellow Vincents tin is a strong reminder of my Mum.
When I was a small kid Mum took in ironing for a local laundrette.
Hour after hour, she ironed and drank gallons of Coca-Cola ... 
to wash down the Vincents powders ...
for the headache that constantly plagued her. 
A combination that was the start of Mum's ruination!

The gorgeous Victorian Tortoiseshell, mesh purse is an online find too.
