Flea market trip...

I must have been channeling my inner seamstress this weekend at the flea market:

As I scooped up this little needle case as the words "for art work" was just to perfect!

And then I picked up this little zippered pouch full of more sewing goodness!

And how can any one ever pass up brilliant time loved buttons!? 
(I never can!)

Oh and for the book lover in me I could not pass up this little celluloid covered gem.

But I must fully admit that I have had my eyes out for just the right back Victorian  mourning dress for  quite some time.  so when I noticed this one, I just knew that my search was over!
The inside hand Stitching of the caging is truly amazing!

And I can never say no to tattered hand made laced bodice:  This one was extra special as it had been worn so much that it had been mended in many diffident spots.

I had so much fun collecting all my new inspiration.
