Fun Finds & a Little Rusty Love

Here is a little pile of treasures from
the flea market last week.

I love that baby picutre.
It's an old cover from a magazine all framed up.

OOOH. Fuzzy. sorry.
These are for putting letters on leather, like punches.
At least that is what the guy told me.
I thought they'd be cool just sitting around.
Hmmm. Should I rust them???

And love this silver creamer.
Tarnished to perfection, and love the base of it,
and swirly design around edge.
Aren't these little glass drawers sweet?
I got two of hem. They were drawers out of a spice cabinet.
England?? Think that is what she said.

And these are some staples my sweet fella took out of
some fence boards we used.
Surely could not throw those away. They were rusty you know. =)
So, what to do with them?

Spell love of course!!!!
Any other ideas???
You can see I have a few. =)

Blessings, and thank you so much for coming by.

Great finds-as usual. :)
The letters are unique,I would have used them as they were intended.
The stamples can be used on pictures in birsnests(crow nests? )making a lamp with them. A dream catcher, mix them with pearls and put them in a bowl with a candle light.Just as deco.
And I think english is in my translator now.
Hugs and kisses!
