flea friday: hoops & stickers

I've been hankering after some embroidery frames lately. I used to have one but passed it on due to not using it much at the time.

Today I found a big bunch of them in one of the local junk shops. There were all sizes, shapes and colours, and reduced to half price! Even though I wanted to have all of them, I restrained myself and picked just two oval shaped ones in green and blue. They cost me €1.50 each.



I also picked up a couple of packs of vintage jam jar stickers. I liked their retro colours and their style which reminded me of my grandma's larder, childhood summers and bottles of raspberry cordial. There's a pack with fruit (cooking apple, redcurrents and cloudberries) and one with veggies (cauliflower, beans and peas). Aren't they great? They cost €0.80.

<edit 13/01/2013 I discovered that these stickers have been designed by Nanny Still who was an important Finnish glass designer from the 50's to the 80's. I think I'll grab the other sticker designs when I see them next time!>

    1. Haha, it's true! It really does look like the cookie monster :) It makes me giggle every time I look at it - I might make a cookie jar and use the sticker for it :)

      I actually found some more stickers of this series in a different junkshop, on a different day, ones for meat. It had pig, duck and moody moose on it.
