Vintage Fun

Wanted to share this altered tin I recently created with a tin I got at the Target $1 spot. I got 3 at the time and now I wish I got more. Didn't it turn out pretty adorable.

I used one of my vintage b/w photos from my precious collection. Inside is a pair of gloves I found at an antique shop, but I'm not sure how old it really is but, I loved the buttons.

I left the back just with the pink paint.

If you haven't tried freecycle.org for gathering your art items, you should really give it a try. There are local groups so you drive as much or as little as you want and you can also list your items that you need to discard but someone else might have use for it. Its an awesome resource for all sorts of items and all free and it keeps it from landfills so you'll be part of the green movement that is becoming so popular. I've gotten vintage fabrics, paints, foam brushes, chip board, oil pastels, board games, books, bottles, vintage purses and probably more than I can't remember right now.

How funny that you mention freecycle because yesterday I picked up a huge box full of old albums and today I got a GORGEOUS old wooden filing cabinet.

I *looooove* freecycle.
