You've heard the saying "One man's trash.... well they're my treasures. As I mentioned on my first page, I like to make collage shadowboxes with vintage items. I try to use vintage as much as possible when I make these. I like the fact that everything in the piece has a history to it--no matter what it is-- someone owned it, used it, read it, etc., up to 100 years ago (the older the better). Usually in the summer, on Saturday morning, my husband Fred and I grab a cup of our favorite coffee--Peet's (the most delicious coffee), take the garage sale listings, and I start to hunt for my treasures.
