Spring is the best time of year for garage saling and garage sales are a fabulous resource for being creative on a budget! Today's Creative Day was about going saling with an eye for possibility... the potential to turn someone else's trash into treasure. I went with my daughter and we had great fun together and came home with a few frugal finds.
I am guessing the wire holder is either for eggs or votive candles... really not sure and not totally sure what I'll use it for but it was too fun to pass up for a buck. And then I found the green balls at another sale... they are like miniature bowling balls... and have no idea what they were for originally but they look fun in the wire holder for now! I have a creative idea for the little wreath and the small stool will be perfect for displaying some finished artistic endeavor some day.
I want to use the pretty plates for a girls luncheon, the vintage book covers to create hand-bound journals, and I have a great idea for turning the crocheted bed pillow shams into cute throw pillows for my sofa... I can hardly wait to show you what I'm envisioning.
Creativity begins with the seed of a vision,
planted in the soil of the imagination,
and watered with the love of expression.
Today was all about the seeds.
