Ever so vintage thingies......

Sunday, hubby and I visited a flea market where, years ago, we use to sell.  It is always fun to go hunt for that wondrous thingy we can't, or don't want to, live without.

Well, I found mine...................................

reflect 001 two dozen tin Christmas light reflectors. 

reflect 002I have plans for these babies.....for starters.........

reflect 005with a glass nugget and some art work....could be a refrigerator magnet or a brooch.  I haven't had time yet, but what I'm really looking forward to, is using them in my collages.

"One man's junk".......so true, but I think I have a treasure.

I am linking to Colorado Lady's Vintage Thingies Thursday .......join me an see many other fun "thingies".

Thanks for stopping and remember I love followers and comments.

Funny thing, that was exactly what I thought of when I saw those delicious reflectors! I'd put them on some sort of metal stem and fill a vase with them.

Tin Christmas reflectors....these are so neat, and the way you are using them is very clever. I have never seen any of the these on my visits to antique malls and flea markets. They are really interesting.

How clever of you to come up with such a unique idea for these reflectors. I see from you Blog Banner that you have a collection of vintage cameras. Aren't they fun and so neat to display. I have become your friend and follower, and like you, I love new friends (and comments) too!
