What is Flea Market Archeology

Finding little pieces of the past and put them together to create a piece of art.
This weekend I found a huge aqua pin, old chain necklaces, chandelier drops and a wonderful old bottle. These articles blend beautifully. Don't you think!?

Shrinky Dinks Pendants

I love working with Shrinky Dinks. They make beautiful art jewelry. Here are a few pieces I created using images from my collage sheets. You can purchase Shrinky Dinks at your local craft store. Here is a web site with a 4 minute video all about the product.

A Summer Batch of Buttons

A Batch Of Summer Buttons and Trim
This is a big lot of my red white and blue themed vintage supplies that I just added to my Etsy shop. Remember grandmas button box? She always removed the buttons on a garment before she made it into something else. I left the bottons just as I found them. Old threads and all.

Altered Vintage Bottles

I have been working on these bottles and finishing them up this week. The shiny silver one still needs a black patina finish. I have so much fun working with vintage witch photographs. They are hard to find and I am always on the lookout for them.
