Flea Market Friday

Here we are again....another week, another Flea Market Friday over at Lemoncholy's Flight of Fancy.  Here are a few goodies I picked up this week.  WARNING:  I'm experimenting with a few free digital effects websites and I've decided to use an OLD/VINTAGE look for the photos in this post.  {I think it's pretty cool myself...}


Gotta love the multi-strand pearls, reminds me of the stuff I used to find in my mom's jewelry box.


I was thrilled to find these medals.....there's even a Saint (Padre) Pio medal which blew me away since my Dad has been on pilgrimages in devotion to this Saint!  Think I'll be keeping that one for me ~ lol.


These flower earrings are a muted mustard yellow/taupe combination and they actually look real (as real as earrings can look, I guess ~ you know what I mean).  I can't wait to include them in some kind of flower-themed necklace!


This one's a jewel in the rough for sure!  Don't know if you can tell from the photo but there are supposed to be eight ruby "jewels" embedded in the ornate scrollwork surrounding the face of the clock  ~ alas, three "jewels" are missing.  I'm sure I can find something to fill in the gaps here....hhmmm....which bling to use?  And should I paint it white (for all you WHITE lovers out there) or should I leave it looking regally old and all antiquey and brasslike?   


These fleur-de-lis earrings are missing their original hanging bling ~ no problem!  I'll replace the missing goodies and probably incorporate them both into one of my signature chock-full-of-charms charm bracelet!  

I LOVE THIS VINTAGE STUFF! 

Head on over to Kecia's blog and share the love. 

UPDATE:  I'm also linking up at Debbiedoos Loves Livin in the Carolinas.  Go check it out!

Have a great weekend!
