Flea Market Finds

I haven't visited flea markets for a long time, but yesterday I finally made time and went to a couple of my favourite places. Here is my catch:

  • Imperial Messenger portable typewriter in leather case. Great condition! This model was produced from 1963 to 1967.
  • Four volumes of Big Animal Book. First issued in Italy in 1974. Filled with beautiful pictures and interesting descriptions.
  • Olivetti Valentine typewriter in original case. 1969. What a beauty! True style icon.

I'm very happy with my finds! My typewriter collection keeps growing. I definitely need to move to a bigger room as soon as possible. :)

Have a thrifty weekend! ;)

Would you like some soup? ;)

It's again that wonderful time of the year, when Lori Anderson of Pretty Things is hosting another one of her amazing bead soup blog parties. And, of course, once again I couldn't resist it!

This time I got paired up with talented Becky Fairclough of Chameleon Designs. Her lampwork creations took my breath away! I can't wait to see, what kind of soup she will send me.
And I really hope she likes the things that I've picked for her.
Would you like to see a little sneak peek? :)

My hubby said that the brown spot on the right looks like a spider. :)) But I can promise that there are no spiders in my soup, maybe just a couple of butterflies instead. Ok, now I've said too much. :)
It's time to go and finish up the floor in the guest room.

Watch this space for further updates regarding the party. ;)

Have a nice and creative day!


Custom work

Hello my dearies!
I know I haven't shown any new jewelry pieces for a while, but I've been extremely busy with my day job and our diy house renovation project.
I haven't been beading much lately, but I've managed to complete couple of simple custom orders. I'd like to share the results with you.

Very simple summer set with lampwork focal and faceted Czech glass beads.

Elegant bracelet and necklace set with lava. It looks much better on a person, but unfortunately I didn't manage to take any other pictures.

And a bead embroidered cuff with mother-of-a-pearl focal, freshwater pearls and a lot of delicate seed beads.

I have couple of other piece in store for you, but I'm going to save them for later. ;)

Thank you for visiting me!
Enjoy your evening!
