Pretty Brooch- Cool finding at flea market

It was a good day ... the sun shines brightly, as a subtitutes to a several gloomy sky for the last view mornings. So I managed to asked my wonderful husband to make sometime for a relaxing stroll along Mainz river, ... and as I suspected, the flea market was on! I couldn't help my self but to ask him to make a small turn to the flea market. And, as always, he agreed.
I did have several items in mind, but the flea market was very crowded, as there has been several cancellation previously, so the anticipation was high. Luckily enough, i managed to find these beautiful items just below 5 euro .. and one of the piece which is my favorite for only 1 euro ... what a day indeed! :)

cute purple necklace

I was overwhelmed with the intensity of creativity in Etsy, ... would love to be able to make some sell there, not merely because of the money but because it is a place where artisan also a buyer, so getting some appreciation there is like an appreciation of your own taste ... erhhhm ... haven't got any sales yet, but hopefully this necklace will win some hearts :)

What style is the chair????

I found this at ... very useful :)

What is your style? What style is that chair?

I confess....This is a cheat sheet for myself. I buy and sell furniture and often have to figure out what period the particular furniture piece fits into.

Use it to figure out your style, and come back often, as I will add to this list over time.
