Finished project

Received my junk from "Birdcolor" on Monday.  Couldn't wait to get home from work to rip open the box.  Lots of goodies, some of which I've been looking for--especially the old metal sale sign holder.  List of goodies: playing card holders, wooden loom yarn shuttle, vintage "Dick and Jane" type reading book, magnifying glass, Yahtzee dice shaker, insulator, mini pennant, scrabble board, buttons, and much more. 

One thing lead to another and I came up with the idea of a "childhood" game collage.  This was lots of fun and now I can't wait to get going on the rest of my "junk".

Birdcolor--hope your package arrived in good shape and thank you for yours. Still mulling over possible ideas for the remaining items.

Good luck to all and can't wait to see your projects.

junkermidge writes: Fun, fun, fun! And what a great collage you made with some of the goodies. I received my box on Monday too but I didn't open it yet. I'm a procrastinator and haven't mailed out my box, so I'm holding myself hostage until I do. Enjoy!
