AT THE FLEA



I made a trip to the flea market recently, and found a few little goodies. Nothing jewelry related, but collage and mixed media pieces, and my little hands are scheming as to what the best thing to do here is! The cabinet cards I think will go in a fabric piece somehow, and the ruler and Kodak exposure guide a collage must! That nifty book at the bottom is so filled with odd little images, I have to look at that for a while. I will be going back because I know their is more where this cam from!
Happy Friday and weekend everyone!

Oh wow, Sharito! You did good! Love that encyclopedia/conversation lexicon!!!! Old books, even if they are already in an advanced stage of disintegration, are always quite expensive here. I love the cabinet cards - sooo cool! And the bird book!! Can't wait to see what you do!

Hi Sharon,
They look like wonderful finds!
I can't wait to see what the results are.
I'm being a little nosey can you send me an email with what flea market you went to?
I've been looking for old photos and books to incorporate in the soldering I've been doing.
Have a wonderful weekend!
Sally
