A few pretty things

 Its been such a good weekend, I have my friend over from Western Australia  for the week and we are having the best time. Today we went to the local market, I got lots of treasures. Look at these beautiful paper flowers, made from book pages and maps.
 They are just stunning.


  I have been looking everywhere for key fobs, finally found some on etsy, they came all the way from Portugal.
 I bought this beautiful tray at the market today, it has tiles on the bottom and  was a must have for the big price of $7. Quite the bargain I thought.
Autumn is in full swing here and the evenings are cold, we have the fire going most nights now.  Perfect sewing weather isn't it.  I have a few new designs in the works and I can't  wait to share  them with you,

Hope you all have a wonderful week and get some sewing time.

All your finds are so pretty, Leanne. Hope you are well. It's getting chilly here too but we've also had some frosts and clear sunny days. The leaves on the trees around us are turning beautiful colours; I love autumn in Ballarat.

Those paper flowers, what a coincidence, Lily came home yesterday from a St Georges Day Fayre and she had made the exact same flower. Very spooky. x

Good Morning Leanne,
Love your paper flowers. I have never seen that style of flower before. A beautiful tray and it will brighten any room for those cold and dark winter months. It is hard to find key rings these days. I may need to look over onto Etsy also. Have a wonderful week and thank you for visiting my blog. Glad you like the cards. : )
Blessings,
Bobbie Lynn
