Sundays Are Vintage Market days

This morning my sister and I arose at the crack of dawn to take a drive over to my favorite Lambertville market. It was VERY chilly, and the sellers were sparse. But we did happen to do very well regardless. I have photographed all my goodies, but I managed to get a few taken. It was a button and flower day. For me anyway. My sister found a nice bit of lace for her crafting adventures. I have started to branch out and want to play with some mixed media art. So I have begun to add vintage photos, letters, books, etc to my collecting in the preparation to sit down and try my hand at it. I love all the Somerset Life magazines. They give me such beautiful inspiration! I also want to try my hand at transferring some of the old black and white vintage photos onto muslin and working some Altered Couture pieces. So much to do So little time! Today was spent with the needle felting machine post the market as hubby was watching football all day :) I've been working on some more felted flowers and incorporating the millinery flowers. Too much fun!! Until next time, have fun with your artistic endevours

The peach flowers are gorgeous; they remind me of southern belles. And I certainly know what you mean about having tons of creative ideas and too little time. Sigh.
