Mystic Paper is once again filled with vintage findings. It's been awhile but we are now restocked with vintage watch faces and parts. These are such fun additions to collages.

We also have some of the empty pocket watches that these came out of. Ever wonder what you could do with these? Here's the perfect example. These were
made by Judy Bidwell. Aren't these little collages fun! The watch faces, parts, and pocket
watches are limited as they are the real vintage deal. I have to wait for them to find me!

Another vintage find (I'm grinning from ear to ear) is the motherlode of all cook books. These are just like the cook books we used in the class. They range from unused with their box to good condition to used condition. They are so much fun to alter! Again, once they're gone they're gone. No ordering these babies!

We got a visit from the man in brown today. No photo shoot since we were at Ink It for the beginning of their closing sale. We are sad that they are closing but Mary Ellen was in great spirits and anxious to begin her new adventure. We wish her the best with her new Gallery. Back to the new product...we received a Creatiavity Notebook & Card Set. Trust me this is a must have for all journalers and artists. It is a journaling notebook and 50 inspirational cards . It's called Wide Open- Inspiration & Techniques for Art Journaling On The Edge and is written and I believe illustrated by Randi Feuerhelm-Watts.

This is my favorite card. Who doesn't remember Licking The Beaters!!
Here's to those special memories!

Thanks for posting pictures of the watches I did for you! I forgot to take pictures of them before I brought them to the shop! It is amazing the goodies you can find when you dig around in antique malls, flea markets and estate sales. Just wait until you see the bottles I have planned!! Just a teaser for you!
