autumn treasurehunting

Today I want to share the thrift I did at our local flea market (one that is done two times every year at our neighbouring school). Together with an old lady that was looking for small buttons I searched meticulously through a zip loc bag that was filled to its rims with buttons in all kinds of varieties. I ended up with these buttons and this little cute box to put them in. Nothing big, just enough to satisfy my urge for some autumn treasure hunting.

Did you notice the change of blog header? For the longest time I have wanted to do something with the design and look on my blog. I am not quite where I want to be yet, but a minor change will satisfy me for now.


  1. Loppemarket!
    Beautiful finds.
    ...and your new blog header is divine.

  2. pretty treasures. i wonder what was originally in that box.

    Yes, i love the banner. It's very very cozy.

  3. Lucky you! I have been wanting to go to some flea markets this fall but everyone has been too sick to go! This gives me a little peek into the excitement of it though! How nice to sort through those buttons and such a nice tin to keep them in.

    Your new banner is wonderful- what a cozy feel it has to it with those little homemade touches. Mmmm.

  4. Lucy: I wonder what was in that box originally too :-)

  5. Your blog design is lovely and the header is especially pretty and welcoming. :)

    And what treasures you found. Maybe the adorable box contained delicious Belgian chocolates. In any case, it's so nice that you're able to find a new use for it.

  6. I love that box! Lucky you! And I sure like your banner - it makes me want to stay here for some time. Do I get to taste if I do..?

    Tora :-)

  7. For ein nydeleg liten knappedåse! Synest eg høyrer lyden av knappane som skramlar rundt i den...

    Ha ein fin søndagskveld!

  8. Que caja más bonita y los botones ya no te digo, Un abrazo.

  9. Herlige funn! Det er da ikke alltid "størrelsen det kommer ann på..."

    Takk for dine kjempekoselige hilsener i bloggen min. Du skal vite at jeg setter stor pris på dem. Og at bloggen din er en fryd å besøke (flott ny header også!)

  10. oooh! I really like your new header. Little treasures are so fun to bring home.


Thank you for letting me know you were here!
