It's Yard Sale Season...

...and I can't help myself. Yard/Garage Sales, Flea Markets & Thrift Stores are great for art inspiration.

You could stumble across a unique item that demands you start yet another craft project or maybe the finishing touch for your current project will find you. Regardless, it's worth a look. So if you pass a sale, take a moment out of your day and stop. Who knows what treasure you may find.

This year I brought home a handwritten recipe book, an old copy of The How And Why Wonder Book of Guns (Wonder Books, Inc. 1963) which has great illustrations, a desk-top easel to display my new art book, a wall mirror with cork board to display some of my costume jewelry as well as a few creative shelving solutions.

Soon I'll have my own sale in effort to make more room for next year's finds.
