Just finished the sample for a new class I will be teaching Saturday, February 7th.  It is a Valentine's Paper Bag Book.  Ever since I saw my first one of these, I have loved the clever way you can use simple materials to create a beautiful and useful art album.  Cleverly hidden in each fold are little pull out pockets where tiny trinkets, small photos or bits of ephemera can be kept.  Fun to make and fun to personalize with your treasures!

These treasures are my latest finds from the Flea Market.  Two sets of many vintage candle clips.  Not sure what I will do with them, but their cool color and patina and just the sheer thought that they are so old enticed me to buy them.  Three vintage Shiny Brite ornaments also called my name!  The little Putz house ornament was something that I have never seen and I had to add it to my other Putz houses that I inherited from my mom.  Looking forward to the next Vintage Show or Flea Market...what will I find?!!
