making up new things from old things

From my collection of old, vintage, Christmassy, wintery stuff.
I had 2 small tinsel trees needing attention - made one decent one and then used the bits left over on one of the headpieces. The poinsettia and glitter flower on the other one are put together - not their original pairing! Not the best light this grey day - but here they are.

the incredible how at FLEat

I am collecting together stuff for Fleat on Sunday - vintage and handmade - and some Chritmassy stuff - very stamp orientated! Lot sof photo and handmade cards reduced in price - perhaps you will need some thank you cards after Christmas: 50p, £1, £1.50 & £2 - there might be a few that are a little more than that. Then there's the Japanese stuff: reversible silk pouches made from recycled vintage kimono silk, brooches made from quality chiyogami/yuzen washi paper on wood.
Vintage jewellery and bric a brac most of it £5 and under...a few clothes but not £5 and under.
I'll see what I can squeeze onto and under the table. Oh and garlands, Christmas and not...
