Flea Finds and a Growing Inspiration Board

I'm a little behind with my Jenni Bowlin BPS challenges- but I did finally get to go to my very first flea market last Sunday. We didn't have much time, but I did find a few treasures there, and also a few while browsing antique shops while on vacation. I got the two very large dictionaries for a whole dollar. A few bird postcards, and antique key, a vintage music book, milkcaps, a button card with a bird print, a few old photos, a mini ledger, an antique Cosmopolitan magazine, and a "Book of Knowledge" that features great old pages on language, science, art, maps, and so much more (a $4 steal). Sum total was less than $30.

Also updating my Inspiration Board - with one of my "Experiments" that I chose to keep, and a Haunted Moon Ribbon tag.

I have a piece of chicken wire just waiting to be painted black and a frame all ready for it- they may fit these pieces better. Just have to get it made!
