A cute mermaid swam up from the bottom of a basket...
Henry checked her out and then the rest of it too...
These wonderful rusted metal pieces...am I to make some crazy mixed media with them? Or sell them on ETSY? Time will tell.
I found these rolls of gold painted nails thinking someone else had started an art project that I might finish, until DH informed me that they go with a nail gun! Did not find the gun, nor did I think I needed one. But who knows what I can turn these into...
And buttons, big buttons, small buttons in between sized buttons. I thought I'd died and went to button heaven. Now these I will use for sure!
A page of this old French English dictionary has already made it into my art journal pages.
And the Chem flash cards are just the right size for tags on art work, or journal page background, or or or....
Someone asked me the other day here on my blog if I feared I was going to recollect stuff till our house was once more bursting at the seams. So far I have not, I have a place for everything I brought home and hopefully most all of it will make it into one art project or another! So far so good. Oh, I almost forgot the buy of the day: This complete set of brass alphabet letters in an old wooden box with a slide out top. I haven't tried them yet, but am sure they will be great for journal pages too. Maybe even on fabric! I thought they were a bit pricey at $15 until I went to the second place and found another box of them with only slightly larger letters and the guy there said he was selling the brass and wanted $75 for his set. So I decided I really did get a deal at the first place.
They are engravers letters.
I got an email recently telling me those self published blog books are now being sold with a 15% discount coupon. Through Bookshare if interested. Time limited.
I also realized that if I delete the comments the book is half as much in cost as it was with them.
I love my comments I get...but do my kids/grandkids need them? Will they mean
to them what they mean to me?
