Little Joe started out as a sweet vintage boxed set of finger paints that I picked up at the flea market on Sunday for $2. Not only is the box darling, get a load of those little paint pots with the sweet green lids and Little Joe’s little face.
I took out the paint rocks (hardened finger paints from, what- the 50s?), soaked the little pots to clean ’em up, and packed them full of colorful vintage postage stamps I’ll eventually use for collage.
I printed out some little vintage-style labels in green to match and labeled each jar by color of stamps.
Don’t you just love matching things in a row? Maybe it’s just me.
I’ll use the colorful empty box to store the hundreds of unsorted stamps I don’t have the patience to go through.
