decoupaged bottles, yardstick frames, fold-up measuring tape easels (a version of the one in Sues book), decoupaged vintage film canisters, milk bottle lamp, and the crowd favorite - my journals made of vintage papers - I used travel maps, recipe book pages, book illustrations, scrabble tiles, postcards, playing cards, and much more...I should have made 100 of them because they sold out quickly!
vintage planters made into pincushions and some baking powder bottles with added charms
had some leftover vintage wood from a shelving project so I stenciled them up and added keys, bottlecaps, etc.
also in photo an old metal dustpan and enamel tray to hold cute magnets - scrabble tiles, dominos, mahjong tiles, etc.
my friends table - she joins old plates, saucers, etc. with candleholders to make footed serving pieces...very pretty

On Saturday I set up shop at the Irvington Farmer's Market (a great little river town in VA) and boy was it hot, 95 degrees!! But it was a fun day with lots of good homeade food, produce, and handmade crafts..jewelry, quilts, pottery, wood furniture..you name it, but I was the only one with a table of recycled junk and it was a real hit with the shoppers!
