the wooden rack


last sunday, i started putting zakka into this wooden rack.
took me quite a bit of time cos i couldn't decide on what should go in.
i am still undecided but for now, i am leaving it this way:

* a full view


* at the bottom: lace monogram, stamps, threads and ink pad


* in the middle:  porcelain flower brooches

* on the side:  C for couturier


* the upper deck:  more stamps.  the two which i have stacked up in the middle have the initial *A* (it's not quite clear in this picture as it was too dark;  will wait for a sunny day to take clearer pics of them).  they are both vintage stamps which i got from a small flea market in london during our recent trip.   i think i will use them on my xmas gift tags this year...  hmm, i also want to make some notebooks with them....   

i love flea markets...  wouldn't it be great if we have something similar in HK? then i can hunt for treasures... better yet, if i can have my own stall (or maybe together with my friends, how fun!)...  then i can sell some of my own collection, buy from others... or even exchange zakka!  ^_^
