No stamping in this post, just some fun finds from the antique mall today.
I need to mention that I love anything vintage (like you didn't know that)
anything RED and anything with a face or hands and also keys. My thoughts behind
the finds are to use them in Assemblage/Collage projects. I also collect vintage
office items, so the reinforcing rings and clock are for my studio. You will see the
other elements on projects soon. Some favorite elements in my finds? The cigarette
the guy is holding on the button card (is that an early version of Boy George?) The kewpie
doll, the ornate design on the keys and the mounting corners with the cool photo corner
guy. The silver clip things next to the alarm clock have a clip on one end and a slide on the
top for a pocket or something. Maybe they were early badge holders???? No clue, just some
fun stuff picked up along the way. I have a special project for the plastic angel and the ideas
are churning for some of the other things. Just wanted to share......
ETA: I just wound the clock and it actually works, alarm and all. Love the old fashioned time
bomb ticking. Guess that's German engineering for Ya, move over Timex. All 3 keys work in the pad lock too.
Gee, not sure I really care but hey it could come in handy if I want to lock something on a project.
