For The Love Of Junk and Other Treasures

I have always been drawn to vintage paper, postcards and old photos.
Earlier this week I went to check out one of my favorite blogs, from there I wandered to one of her favorites and I found a treasure of a blog. Some one who not only loves old photos but she is also drawn to old junky treasures. What she does with these treasures is very unusual. Some will love it and some will say " Huh".
Well I was intriqued. So intriqued that I have wandered around her site off and on several times this week.
She mentioned a book she read and loved " Rusty Things " by Michael DeMeng. I just had to go and find a used copy today. Hopefully I will receive it next week.
I look forward to giving this new "to me" craft a try real soon.
Take a moment and check out her site if you like at small-stories-studio

And of course had to check out an antique store yesterday to see if I could find anything of interest ... and this is what I found. Two wonderful old photos, vintage slate chalk board and some old checkers.

Have the start of an idea and lots of great photos to look through. Tomorrow there is an auction in Rosenberg.. just may find something there. If not lots of antique stores to wander around.

Glad you stopped by, I hope that you will take a moment peek at some of my past postings... Grace

  1. Grace, how great to have a kindred spirit out there that loves old photos as much as I do! Thank so much for mentioning my blog and I am thrilled that it inspired you to get Michael Demengs book. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do and hope it will encourage you to create! Enjoy the auction, hope there will be lots of old photos...Cheryl
