Flea Market Finds Turns Into New Necklace

This past Sunday, I went to the Alameda Point Flea's been a couple of months since I've been there. It was a beautiful day and I love running into friends (Tricia, Deb and Anna) that I haven't seen in awhile.
Here are my finds for the day. I've always wanted a large mannequin and found this great black one - perfect fit in my cart.
I purchased three little black coin purses and decided to turn one into a focal piece on a necklace. Below is the picture of the finished piece.
It might be too large to wear, but it also makes an interesting wall hanging piece. I've also been making some fun little shrink plastic necklaces.

Lastly, I thought I'd share a recent outing I went on with my family. It was a first for all of us...we walked across the Golden Gate Bridge.
It's 1.7 miles each way.

Gorgeous views from the bridge.

I can't believe it's February already. Have a great week!


  1. Fabulous black mannequin - I love the little purse necklace and the way you put the watch piece where the closure is. I think it would make a great wall hanging for a special spot. I love the little shrink plastic necklaces with the striped dangly legs attached to the gears - very cute.
    Beautiful shots of the GG bridge - a great family outing.

  2. thanks for a wonderful day at the flea market in alameda. you have a great eye for searching out treasures. really loved the pork belly baked bao. thanks for turning me onto them.

    what a perfect day.

    love what you did with the small coin purses. so unique.

    the walk with the family across the golden gate bridge will be so memorable when they grow up. what an awesome day to do it
