Jewelry and Design Elements
Love the above pieces that I purchased for my vintage redesign business on Friday at the Oronoco Flea Market. I paid a bit more than I would of liked to, but they were such great pieces, so went for it. The two neutral colored pairs of earrings were from a 100 year old ladies estate. Loved the patina on the bracelet, and the colors of these pieces, well lets just say they go with the European Romantic feel that I strive for in most of my designs.
Adored this cute little four leaf clover glass bottle stopper that I found in a junk box at the key guys booth. Thanks Robyn for the heads up on these fun finds.
This gentleman had the cooooolest keys! Robyn and I had a blast picking and choosing each of our own styles from his vast collection. And they were a good deal tooooo. How good? I can't tell....
Gorgeous patina on this coin will be turned into a charm soon.
Loved these six keys and the special details they each have on them.
Love the detailing on this key...
A beautiful religious charm...
Gorgeous blues on this vintage sweater clip and a cool chain section too.
Cool grunge on the "K" token.
During a 15 minute rain storm I was able stand under a tent filled with jewelry only. :) Sorted through a junk plastic bin and came away with these treasures. The dealer sold it for one lump some. A good deal, not sure yet, but there are some cool elements to work with.
Details of the above photo. Found some great beads, vintage bead caps, charms and misc.
This will be used in a personal design for myself. It's a Mexican coin, and from the year I was born. Ooops, now you know my age...as if I care. :)
Architectural Display Pieces and Hardware Finds
Love, love, love these treasures of vintage hardware I found to purchase. Dirty, grungy, and ohhhh, so cool. Stop in at Junk Bonanza to see what I'm doing with them.
Loved the patina on these three hinges, so they came home with me too. Stop in and check out my space at Junk Bonanza to find out where they end up and are given a new lease on life.
I spent Saturday morning washing, air drying outside, and than poly coating all of these pieces to protect the customers clothes from any messes. Now, they're ready to use and design with.
Washed up, dried and treated with a clear coat.
Love designing with these, but they are hard to find. I hit the jackpot on Friday for these.
Notice the coolness of these.
Gorgeous patina on this one...
Love, love, love these babies.
Washed, dried, sprayed and ready to go.....
Chippy patina is divine.
Thrill of the hunt!!!
Love this crusty hinge...
Another awesome patina on a hinge.
A very cool hinge with great patina.
Thanks for stopping by my blog. Now plan to stop on over at the Junk Bonanza event in 3 weeks to see what I create with all of these new found treasures. Show dates are Sept. 16, 17 and 18 at Canterbury Downs. Check out this link to learn more. It's going to be a great show!
