This Weeks Finds...

It's supposed to be summer here in New Zealand but today we had hail! Not a lot, but enough to bring the rather moderate temperature down a degree or two. Hopefully the weather improves as my mother's coming down from Wellington tomorrow to stay for the week and I'd hate her to think it's always like this!

Anyway, this week I found...


a beautiful vintage glass container and an eggcup...


more of those b****y knitting needles and about 200 mother of pearl buttons...


more vintage buttons...


a tapestry cushion...


a pretty plate for a cake stand...


a green depression glass bowl....


 and a teacup and plate.

As always, I've linked up with Her Library Adventures for Flea Market Finds.

  2. Love the green bowl, gorgeous find. Also the little egg cup and of course buttons are always good. It's hot here in South Australia today, had an outside party to go to - not much fun. Have a great weekend. Sherry :)

  4. The mother of pearl buttons are a great find. Buttons in my area are priced so hight that I don't buy them. Enjoy your visit with your mother.♥

    1. Thanks everyone for your comments!
      Paulette, I think I was very lucky to get those buttons as they were all in a jar together and when I took them up to the counter he said $2! I said they were worth more than that to me and gave him $5, as it was a charity store. Even then I felt a bit like I was ripping them off....
