Fabulous Junk Swap

I know I am on hiatus to a point but I had to share this!
I recently participated in a junk swap at Junkmarket Style. I received my package on Saturday from my delightful swap partner Avery. She is an art teacher who uses junk to make jewelry and assemblages. Perfect partner. I know you are completely jealous. Just look at this fabulous stash I received!!!

You wish you were me right now, no?

You really must not drool all over your keyboard.

I knew this one would get you! Fantastic piles of yummy junk.

What more is there to say?

She even took into consideration my fascination with everything pertaining to the Sacraments.

Now I need to put my thinking cap on and start creating. Avery, you are the best! You need to start a blog and show us all the creative things you do with the junk you find.
Once again I was lame and forgot to take pics before I sent my box out.  Hope she enjoys what I sent as much as I am enjoying her selection. (Sadie and I keep going through it all as if it was a treasure chest filled with diamonds.) To us it is!

Have a treasure of a day, P.

BTW I temporarily added the eggs to the wooden piece Avery sent. I am loving that piece! It may become my permanent centerpiece to play with through the seasons!
Pin It!

Hi Pam-
Thanks for leaving me such a nice note. Too many of us are in the same boat. My husband has a least 10 friends all over the country "in transition" also. Hopefully the economy will turn around soon. My husband is also trying to start his own venture, two actually. He is constantly networking and meeting with people and connecting. I hope your husband has success with his. I keep in the back of my mind that it is only temporary.
I have to comment on the junk your received - what fun. I will have to follow you to see what you come up with.
My best- Diane
