I haven't been doing flea market find posts for a while, just because I didn't have time to go treasure hunting during the crazy holiday season. But today I have couple of things to show you.
Yesterday we went to visit relatives in Kouvola, which is around 40 km away from here and, of course, we couldn't resist visiting couple of local flea markets. There I found this beautiful hand-painted wooden jar with a lid. I assume that originally it's from Russia, but I could also be wrong. Now it lives on my shelf and is filled with small cotton yarn balls for crocheting.
Another find of the week is a brass thimble for my collection. I don't know how old it is, but I think it's old enough to go on the shelf with my other thimbles. I just liked its old look with a bit of patina and cute tiny dimples.
And the last, but not the least, is a beautiful pickle/olive fork. I've been looking for a perfect piece for ages. This one has very delicate double sided rose pattern and it's almost 19 cm long. It works perfectly with the rest of my silverware and I'm very happy about it.
