One person's trash is definitely another's treasure ~

I see beauty in the strangest things now. Why do I love old, broken pocket watches.....with stained faces no less ~


Vintage paper items, old photos, ads, envelopes and even index cards have such charm ~


Gorgeous sepia mounting corners ~ maybe not the man photo so much ~ but I love the corners and I'll use the photo as a foundation for another image :)


And a tattered mini photo album ~ just waiting to become something wonderful . . .


Each of these old, used items can be transformed into something wonderful ~
possibly even a treasure!

I'm so excited!!! I've been working so hard in the studio ~
it's looking better than it ever has.....
and I can't wait to show you ~

I hope you have an amazing Wednesday sweet friends,
xxoo, Dawn

Dawn, all this "stuff" is fabulous! New just never has the same interesting character, does it. Kind of like US as we get older. ;-)

Hugs! I've been a stranger lately!
Summer has called me outside away from crafting and I miss it and I miss all my sweet blogging friends!

I love old paper, postcards, letters, ect. I really like vintage children's books. Actually almost anything paper that in pre-1923 I love.

Am I going to have to hide behind the bushes and follow you again to see where you get this stuff. I love the photo album cover and of course the watches.

Lori said...

i think you are drawn to the colors of all of those things...that's my excuse anyway...i LOVE those photo corners!!! what a fabulous find...i use the craft paper photo corners quite a bit...they just make me happy!!!

Miss Sandy said...

I am afraid my progress is so slow that I may not even get to a photo ready room! I hope to get at least some sort of pretty worked up and not just the bare bones of the room. I look forward to seeing all your creativity on display in your studio!

Tammy said...

I can't wait to see what you do with it all!☼

Gail said...

I have to agree with you, I too find all those items intriguing! Especially love the little booklet....so very charming....

Vee said...

You're such a tease! Have fun...

Linda said...

Deb said...

I can see the beauty in everything you've shown too Dawn :-) Looking forward to seeing everyone's creative spot on Friday ♥

Your finds are so fun, I see you having a moment when they come to life under your artful touch. I am sad to say that we do not have alot of places here for truely good little treasures, but I do yard sale often. And it is so fun to find that one thing that just calls your name.
Thank you for your support and I pray all is well with you and yours.
Big Hugs, Mary
