Back from Brimfield

Picked up my son in Massachusetts last week and made time to stop by the renowned Brimfield Antique Show on the way up. It was overwhelming to say the least. There were hundreds of vendors carrying everything from rusted old screws and latches to fine antique furnishings. I only stayed an hour and a half, so I only managed to cover about one fourth of the show. I bought a small antique ruler for 50 cents. Yep, that's it.

Meanwhile, back at home, I scored big at the local garage sales and flea markets. I found all sorts of neat things for my vintage shop (and for me)! Really cool Egyptian napkins, a bunch of books in Hebrew and in Arabic (great for creating collage backgrounds) and a gigantic old fashion wood bird cage (for $2)! So cool! You can see some of my finds pictured here.

I am finishing a really fun, but tedious custom project for a midshipman's graduation gift this week. I can't wait to post it, but I really have to wait until I show my client first. All I can say is that it involves mathematic equations, storage and music. Curious? Stay tuned.
