market finds ...

Little Mister came with me to the markets this morning, which was good (because you get to move around pretty slowly and see things you otherwise might not) and not so good (aparently we had to stop at EVERY stall selling toys!). Still, we both came home happy - lots of dinosaur books for him, and these treasures for me ...


Some lovely red and blue trim ... love it!


A box of pool balls ... I want lots more of these - I have a picture in my mind of a large glass vessel full of these coloured balls, and I have just the spot for it on the bookcase. For now, an old vase will do!


Last, but not least, a vintage doiley - green for a change ...


I hope you've found some treasures this week too. To share yours, or to check out what others have found pop over to Her Library Adventures. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

oh! The billiard balls look amazing! What a great idea!

Cool goodies. Love the pin ball idea too. Would look great in a bar too I think. My husband is always saying "One day when we move to a house that has a bar..." :)

I love the pool balls idea too. That doily is a great deep mint-ish colour, such pretty stitching.

Love, love, love what you have done with the pool balls! And that green doily is delicious!

I was wondering what on earth you were going to do with a box of pool balls. What a fab idea!

I have been on the lookout for billiard balls for a while and the closest I got was a battered bowling ball pin. Ilove what you have done with them. Very chi chi. xxNick

Wow I'm impressed by the billard balls in the vase. I'm inspired to put all sorts of unexpected things in a vase now - guess repetition and volume are tried-and-true good decorating concepts.
