A bunch gorgeous raw things arrived a few weeks ago…
Thank you Penny! from SparrowSalvage …I will use them in my altered art projects and work on ideas I have for some abstract wearable art pieces and will definately keep some bits for sculpture.
You can find more goodies like this at Faginsdaughter .
A few closeups
Don’t you just love the antique lock. I retreaved a few of them from a rubbish heap on the way to Phillip Island years ago. I use them as props in my photography.
I also found a heap of German scrap recently, with Victorian ladies,children and florals and a little handmade card from the 1920’s.
When I explore op shops I have a bit of a system where I have to check out every box and probably annoy the staff.
I do tidy them all up before I go, though.
Do you have special rituals you go through when seeking out your treasures?
