A Sunny Day With Sarah, Amy, Anna and the Phillies

I spent several hours in the wonderful sun today shopping the 40/8 flea market in Santa Rosa. My favorite buy for the day was a binder full of vintage trade cards and ephemera- (I’ll be sharing those with you soon!) I met a super fun gal, Sarah, that was selling at the flea and bought a few cool things from her. One of which was a bag of blue vintage millinery flowers & leaves. Once home, I felt motivated to Mod Podge an old Phillies cigar box, that was in pretty bad shape, to store my flea market flowers. Thanks to my new blog friend Amy of Mod Podge Rocks, she has a new blog banner and I have enough Mod Podge to last through the rest of this decade. So I sat on my sunny porch and Podge’d some very old dictionary pages and few digital images from Anna Corba’s Alphabets & Ornaments (a book with CD I found at the library!) Here is my little afternoon project!

    I love your cigar box. It looks beautiful. Nothing quite like Mod Podge to brighten up an oldie but goodie!

    I love it. I just recently did a similar project, using a peanut butter box from Costco, and some vintage hymnals. I'm going to have to check out that flea market sometime. I like that you're local(ish), so I can benefit from your findings in the area! =)
