Here's my Buried Treasure post--playing along with the Altered Page's wonderful
idea of inviting people to repost a favorite post. Thanks, Seth!
Back in early spring
when these were flowering,
we went here.
They had old books, some in bad enough condition to make them perfect for collage.
They've found their way into the studio, instead of to our already overflowing library.
There were letters and stencils galore. Did I mention that part of the sale was in someone's wonderful and very vintage garage/workshop?
I got some strange looks from men as I elbowed them (just kidding) out of the way, competing for prizes. I'm lucky to be the only woman in these parts collecting gnarly stuff.
Once we got our loot home, I had to compete with my husband to see who gets to make stuff with what. We couldn't figure out why this bucket was so heavy, until we took out the pulleys on top to find the bottom full with 8 inches of lead weights!
And I made some assemblages using some things from that day. The ring with rusted wire was apparently part of a crab pot.
The Caprice key ring came from another hunting and gathering expedition.
What have you found lately?
