Of Pinwheels and Posters

I have a new fave shop! Daiso, a Japanese $2.80 shop, just recently opened in Melbourne. I happened to pass by the shop last week and saw these….

Pinwheels!  Aren’t they just so colorful and gorgeous? I got so excited I bought a bunch of them.  They had tiny ones available! Just perfect for my Cirque de Souris bell jar.

I hopped and skipped all the way home with my bag of pinwheels.  I was just so inspired, I started practicing making a circus poster.  My old printer ran out of ink, which was fortunate.  I wouldn’t have thought of using my colorful markers to make the poster.  Here’s a photo of my first try.  Not bad,  huh?

Have to go now! Still have to make my circus bell jar.

Fabulous Flea Market Finds

Look what I’ve got!

Flea Market Finds

Had a great trip to the local trash and treasure markets and found these!   A crystal ball for $5,  glass domes for $2 & $6, a  tiny miniature donkey for $1 and a pack of 10 gold pine cones for $5.  I also dropped by an op-shop in Sunshine and got this vintage travel case for $5!  I couldn’t believe my luck.  It’s an Everlite travel case with metal studs and it even has wooden detailing.  They don’t make things like this anymore.

Here’s a closer shot of the glass domes and miniatures:

I couldn’t get rid of the gnome for this shot .  He just had to ride the donkey.

I love flea markets and op-shops.  It’s that mystery of finding the most unusual stuff  that just arouses this anticipation in me every time.   More fabulous flea market finds in the coming weeks!
