my new old love affair


i finally got a new camera (sony cybershot dsc-h12) which takes amazing macro shots, (too bad i didn’t figure that part out till i got home)…anyway shooting again tomorrow to tighten up the pics will fine tune it i pray, so i can finally finish this article about the fleas…but the best part was that it brought me back to my favorite place in new york, my #1 most fun: the fleamarkets!! now if i could only sit and write without distraction…

I could have covered the world in fabric today! crazy gorgeous, affordable textiles from the 1600 and 1700′s. did i want to buy these? more than anything!

June 30, 2007. Fabric, Fleamarkets.

    OH! Lucky you with a new camera!

    What keeps the old fabrics from dry rotting? I’ve had pieces from the ’40′s you couldn’t even use. I guess maybe the weave was better?
    Beautiful photo Claudia.

    thank u! i don’t know about that, i’d guess so many things, sunlight, pesky moths, storage in the wrong place?

    Fabulous. I am looking for vintage fabric in big quantities Do you know where I can find some. I am trying to not buy new fabric for my curtains you know I am trying to be more environmentally conscious. So far none of the organic fabrics I’ve seen out there pleased me. Any suggestion anyone?

    Have fun with your new camera and… oh! pardon me… let me wipe the drool off the monitor…. those fabrics are gorgeous!

    These fabrics make me want to take up sewing or learn how to re upholster!!

    Ok…I’ve seen your blog before…but my heart “stopped” momentarily when I saw these fabrics…I am in love with them…especially the top 2 in the picture….Lucky, Lucky you…how fun is it going to be just to either a.)sit and drool over them…b.) touch and caress them on a daily basis OR c.) create something beautiful from them….NO…I’m not really weird ….I don’t normally touch and caress inanimate objects…but I do loves my fabric…ya know!! Enjoy…OH and congrats on the new camera…I have a great digital…however, I haven’t learned to post pics as of yet…but I’m going to!!
