I enjoy finding wonderful treasures at the flea market, but even more important to me is to find a unique way to use them for a display in my home.  I have always had this crazy practical side.  When I make altered art I like to use my family photos so it is art with meaning.  Years ago when I painted on fabric I enjoyed the fact that I could wear what I made.  I make pillows, table runners, wall art, holiday items so it is no surprise that even my flea market treasures need to do double duty.  This photo is one of the favorite ways I am using my vintage toy trucks this season.  Now what will I have my trucks display in December?!

I have been meaning to share my latest discoveries from the flea market in the sky, otherwise known as the internet.  Love that you can look for treasures from all over the world from the comfort of your home!  I'm not sure why I am so drawn to ephemera such as ticket stubs and luggage labels.  Maybe it's the fact that I love to travel or that these items were connected to events that were fun.
