My sweet husband took me to this little flea market (i like to call them dirt malls) that I have been wanting to go to for a while now. Turns out, this place is junk heaven and much bigger than I thought. I didn't have a ton of time to look around, but I could have spent HOURS there. In addition to a pretty japanese dove mini-dish (for my favorite dipping sauce, ranchy-mustetchup) and a splendid little vintage lion ornament, I got these treasures:I found a little baggie with 5 crochet hooks, a set of stitch markers, some needles & a bunch of emroidery thread bobbins, it was marked 75 cents. But the guy gave it to me for 50 cents. SCORE!
Basically, you choose an old book and turn it into an art journal by painting in it, drawing, pasting scraps, writing, pretty much whatever you want! I'm excited to get started on it. I found this awesome owl book published in 1954 for 50 cents.
What a glorious day
