flea market finds

I haven't had much time for flea markets lately, but I made some good finds back in November. Or was it October?

I just had to rescue these children's books from 1950's - I get like that with books sometimes, if they look especially lonely.... The books once belonged to a boy called Martti Vuorinen. I think it's nice when the past owners have left some traces of themselves in old books.





Pupujussi Gulliver ("Gulliver Rabbit") is my favourite title.


Another great find was this cake lifter, which kind of matches the spoons I already have (they used to belong to my grandparents). It would also go well with the Focus de Luxe cutlery I'm dreaming about.

Äiti luki mulle noita kirjoja pienenä. niissä oli jotain pelottavaa, ja samalla tietenkin todella kiehtovaa.
Oikeasti, tulee ihan jännitysolo vaan kun katsoo noita kansikuvia!
En kyllä muista yhtään juonta tai varmaan edes päähenkilöiden nimiä.

Ihanaa, että ole pelastanut nuo kirjat! Harrastan itse silloin tällöin samanlaista pelastustoimintaa ;-)

Hyvää vuodenalkua!
