Thrifted! Velvet Frames, Lace and Jewels

Gosh, it’s been a while since I’ve posted much or visited my favorite blogs. It’s been a little chaotic over here, with just life. Hopefully things are settling down a little now and I’ll be around more. I’ve missed you! I would love to show you some of the things I found on a recent flea market excursion.

I am crazy for old velvet, so when I saw these very old frames on the $1 table at the flea market it was love. You can tell how worn and faded they are, that’s why I love ‘em.

Rarely do I hit the market without picking up some sort of lace. Isn’t this basket sweet?

And no junking day would be complete without a stash of junk jewelry.

I am so excited to be gearing up for a great and big show in Des Moines this November. Junk Jubilee Jingles will be held November 14, 15 and 16 at the Iowa State Fair Grounds. Have you heard of it? It’s worth the trip, with quality vendors of all sorts, great shopping for yourself or holiday gift buying and fantastic displays to inspire. Some of the jewels, buttons, buckles and bow in the above pic will make their appearance at the show once they are fashioned into wearable art. I’ll be talking a lot about the show between now and then. If you live anywhere near I hope you make plans to come and shop!
