Sweet things & Sugar


Hello dear ones! 

I found a few pictures on the market and they're tintype! Between 1833 and 1888 this form of creating pictures was most popular. I ran off right away and laminated them so that they dont get damaged further! 

I went off to St. Lawrence market, where farmers bring their fantastic products and I saw clumps of amber coloured sugar and being curious, asked about it. The sweet lady explained that it is raw sugar and that they use it to cook and in tea and pretty much with everything. Im just wondering how lng it would take to melt? I suppose one could use a hammer to break off pieces, which is what the lady said to do before dropping in some into a drink. I took it because it looks so nice. :) 

I found this nafta lamp at a garage sale and altered it with lace and a bit of rabbit fur. It turned out so gypsyish, perfect for my girls room! 

Friends, I'd like you to hop on over to Maureen, owner of Victorian Studio, where you will find old times past and stunning finds. Maureen is so creative and a real dear, and as a bonus, she's having a beautiful giveaway for one lucky winner that ventures into her world! :)

Thank you all for dropping in and leaving sweet comments! Hello to all new followers and I wish you all wonderful summer days!



Witam Was ludzie mili!
Na targowisku znalazlam pare zdjatek robionych jeszcze na metalu-Timtype .Pomiedzy rokiem 1833 a 1888 taka forma robienia zdjec byla bardzo popularna.Zaraz pomaszerowalam je wszystkie zalaminowac co by  bron boze nie ulegly dalszemu zniszczeniu.

Na St. Lawrence bazarze w hali gdzie ludziska ze swoich farm sprzedaja organiczna zywnosc ,zobaczylam takie krysztalyw kolorach bursztynu z ciekawosci oczywscie zapytalam co to i mila pani  powiedziala mi ze to cukier nie przeczyszczany i oni uzywaja go do wszystkiego od gotowania po slodenie herbaty.Ciekawam tylko jak dlugo trzeba czekac na rozpuszczenie sie cukru?A zawsze mozna uzyc mlotka przed wrzuceniem cukru do filizanki :)
Wzielam sobie woreczek do dekoracji.
