Finds From The Flea Market
Hi well I just went to "LOOK:" today at the Santa Monica Flea Market. I love getting lost in all the history and delicious treasures one can observe from afar...I think I got too close today and could not resist some items that I HAD to HAVE.

Hi well I just went to “LOOK:” today at the Santa Monica Flea Market. I love getting lost in all the history and delicious treasures one can observe from afar…I think I got too close today and could not resist some items that I HAD to HAVE. Those of you who have the “BUG” understand my needs…I first started with the glass jars with the numbers. I thought they would be so cute for a baby shower I’m doing. Not sure what I will do with them but loved them…then…I found these wonderful wooden number stamps…at first it was about the case it came in but when I turned over the numbers and saw the die cut typestyle well they were darling..would be so fabulous for stamping the inside of seating cards with the table numbers and for price tags at my market. Some of you know my weakness for oil paintings of women. I found a beautiful one today. The best part is this beautiful lady looks like she is at a luncheon…ahhhh so happy I found her! And last but not least, my hubby and I could not resist this fabulous game table. The paint is gorgeous red…asian design is magical and even has a matching design on the table pad itself. Now I have the excuse to get back to playing Maj Jongg…Oh I also got a beautiful inlaid cigarette box…I do not promote anything with cigarettes but I thought this was cool especially the little ashtray that looks like a little drawer…enjoy the pics.

    Just in case you’re curious — your gorgeous inlaid wood box was made in Sorrento, Italy… that’s the Sorrento coastline with Mt. Vesuvius in the background. That wonderful little town is known for it’s inlaid woodwork. We were there this spring with Bob and Dawn (right before your big event in Venice)… here are a few photos of the town as well as a craftsman making pieces like your little box. :) Enjoy your treasures!! http://amoromnia.xanga.com/700243650/italy-day-7—last-day-on-the-sea/
