more treasures ,right here ,right now ...


ceramic pieces from Victorian rubbish dumps

needlework magazines booty

needlewomen are rad !

the second part of this post features my find of the day for sure ,a collection of FIFTY beautifully cared for needlework magazines from the late 1940,s till the 1950,s , these came via a seller who came over from London,with local connections , they are full to the brim with the most amazing ideas , crazy schemes ,and really folkloric booty .I love them so much , that I cannot believe that I found them ,or maybe I cannot believe that they excite me so , there is absolutely no hope for me !...........
The china scraps are from the same man , who used to dig at the old recovered Victorian rubbish dumps , well this is the type of stuff he found. I do think they have a strong poetic resonance together. Once complete dolls, teasets etc.......
