An old and very battered suitcase bought for a song because of the poor condition......
I did say it was battered!
decided to leave all the imperfections untouched
I also bought a lovely little old wooden box, perfect to display my tags in, just the right size. It has a lovely little paper trim around the front and the back of the inside.
wonder what it used to hold - any ideas?

I took a couple of images of the venue of the flea market, a beautiful Victorian railway station that has just been renovated to return it to its' former glory. Local people campaigned long and hard to restore what is now a metro station.
exquisite metalwork newly restored and painted
the market is on both platforms - you cross to the other side via a lovely curved bridge
the crowds rummage for a bargain
Forgot to mention, last but not least, a tin I bought at the Hexham Antiques Fair on Tuesday for the bargain price of a pound - a rusty tin, ideal for holding????? think about that later, just loved it though.
the lady who sold it to me said she remembered using it.
some things do improve with age.......
That concluded the 'prop' purchases, just busy making, making, making items to be displayed in them for Living North. Until next time, the sun was shining today, a clear blue sky. Jayne x
