Fabulous finds

Hubby and I headed out today to Rogers Flea Market in Roger's OH (with a stop at antique shop too).

At the " Dollar Land" booth I snatched up all these wonderful collars and trims for $1 a piece! Oh how I wish every space could be dollar land!!!!!

I found these great glass paper weights that I plan on taking apart and filling up with all kinds of goodies.
I was on the hunt for some millinery flowers and could only find this sweet velvet bunch along with some photos....these women don't know it yet but next month they will be turned into glorious witches for Halloween...ssh, don't tell and spoil their transformations! I think the gentleman will make a handsome warlock, don't you?

Of course it is not a flea market experience for me unless I find some nice rusty junk and tins...

I found a big pile of buttons, they always come in handy for creating

This piece will join my collection of vintage Niagara Falls items, made even more special since my hubby bought it for me.

DISCLAIMER : those who do not like creepy old dolls might want to skip the next couple of pics... ....I was struck at first by their rough condition but then Michael DeMeng popped into my head and said they would make some great creations once they were Demengified ,so to honor him I will do my best to accomplish that (any time I hear his voice in my head, I obey it....LOL.....)

that is this little one doesn't put a hex on me first!!

can you say CREEPY?!?!?!?!?!?
