Hunting at Lucca antique market

This week end I made a tour at the antique market. I was looking for a frame for the painting Fifi made for me. It hasn't been easy to find something of the exact size...but finally I found it!!! A coat of grey paint and...ready to be hanged!
I bought this glass jar too...I'll etch it for my webshop!

I made the cutlery fabric roll...toile de Jouy and matelas fabric.... ready to add to my web-shop too!

I had a very busy week end...I'm late to answer your comments! Sorry...I'll do it as soon as possible!!!
Have a great week!
