Last week I got this lovely old tin (a bit battered and once owned by a boy called Juha, who wrote his name inside the tin) from J. He'd seen it at a flea market, remembered my butterfly tin, and, knowing I love all things with birds, bought it for me. It makes me really happy!
J is like my personal flea market shopper, he's surprised me with bird-themed second hand finds before: the big silver earrings with hooks missing (note to self: buy hooks for the earrings already!) and the red plastic brooch. The silver Love bird necklace by Efva Attling was probably the beginning for my bird-obsession. I got it from my uncle and his wife when I turned 25 (well, I chose it myself) and have worn it most days ever since.
(I also have a couple of tees and hoodies with bird print, and some undies as well, but didn't take photos of them.)
