Playing With My Other 'Art Supplies'

I  like  to  call  these  my  art  supplies--
 
 
Unlike  purchasing  from  an  art  store--I  purchase  these  from  garage  sales  and  flea  markets--most  of  these  items  would  most  likely  have  been  trashed  unless someone  else  found  them,  and  all  of  them  have  a  history  to  them--a  story  to  tell.
 
But  now they've  come  together  to  make  a  new  story--
 
 
...in  this  vintage  silverware  box...
 
 
and I've  made  a  new  doll--
 
 
 
....and  her  new  home  is  in  this  old  cheese  box--
 
 
 
I  couldn't  stop  with  my  art  supplies--I  altered  some  more  playing  cards  (see  my  last  post),  and  this  time  I  put  them on  some  wood  houses  and  even  a  little  tree--
 
 
 
 
 
And  one  more--
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Whatever  I  found  that  was  close  at  hand  went  into  this  Dream  box--pretty  much  how  I  dream.  I  think  whatever  is  floating  around  in  my  head  my  mind  grabs  and  puts  them  in  my  dreams,  and  sometimes  I  really  wonder  what's  going  on  in  my  head  because  I  can  have  some  pretty  strange  dreams!
 
So  this  weekend  is  my  first  show  of  the  year--the  Youngstown  Summer  Festival  of  the  Arts--it  seems  like  I've  been  getting  ready  for  years  for  my  art  shows  to  start  up  and  now  they're  finally  here--can't  wait  to  get  out  there  and  get  started!

These are SO creative. I adore your houses, and of course, that dream box is incredible. Like you, I make art out of junk. But MY junk never looks as good when finished as yours does!
