But the thrill of finding "treasures" makes it all worthwhile. Like this pile of trims just begging to be glued or sewn onto some paper project. It was all stuffed into a plastic bag, and I bought it for the lace work on the left - handmade, beautiful stuff made by the seller's grandmother. Now, why would someone put Grandma's handiwork out at a tag sale?? No worries, Grandma, it will have a new life in some altered art project, and I'll try to make it worthy of your wonderful work. (I could NOT get this picture flipped -even Google'd it and got some complicated explanation, but no easy fix - grrr)!
I love finding art supplies - some beautiful Strathmore paper in lovely colors and blank cards.
No tag sale outing would be complete without finding some books - this time some great books for our darling little GD. She'll be visiting this summer and we need to make sure her library is well-stocked.
