...so another trip to the flea market was in order for today and of course, we started off with breakfast...

the area in jaffa where the flea market is situated is like one big theatre set...the surrounding run-down buildings are as interesting as what is being sold...

the buildings are old and many are still used as workshops...the state of decay is just beautiful

i absolutely love these drip stains on this old door...may have to use this image somewhere...

so so beautiful in my eyes...

i have a passion for persian rugs and today we bought a second hand one ~BIG BEAM~ now a treasure in our home...

happy week to you my friends xxx

    What a find with the rug! I found your site via my sister's and really enjoy looking around (and your Etsy items are wonderful too!).

    The doors do look wonderful in your pictures! I have to go there more often. Also, I recently saw something very cute (not sure about practical): a "persian rug" mouse pad. You might like it ;-)

    Years ago Fernando used to photograph old, rusty doors and gates and then use the photos (then still in print no digital yet) as inspiration to paint large canvas mainly with acrylic and collages. Now you reminded me of that. Thanks!
