Some new treasures :-)

Do you enjoy Flea Markets ? I do but do not often get to attend , however this past Sunday I attended the new market that opened in town and wow there were a lot of people as curious as I was . Just look at what I found
This gorgeous basket , I had never seen a basket this style before ,nor this color , I just love it and thought it would look nice with some old quilts rolled up inside next to my treadle sewing machine.
 At the same table I spied this little gem and when I peaked inside I just had to have that too , you know how it is ;-)
Do you want to know what is inside ?Sure you do .
Filled right to the top with embroidery floss and look at that cross stitch piece , I will share that another time . I bought both pieces from the Pictou County Pickers  , they had some beautiful antiques and told us these baskets came from a home in Halifax , I am so pleased they are now in my home:-)
 We had a much cooler day today with some rain , I am sure my flowers are happy and you know I enjoyed a dull day for a change did some much needed cleaning but no sewing .
 Thanks for the visit and hope to see you soon.
 hugs Sheila
