Beauty in Junk

After finding this quote I put together a small collage of found things.
'Once you begin to see
the beauty in junk,
every outing can become
a treasure hunt.'
I purchased a book from a second hand store, Twice Blessed, entitled American JUNK by Mary Randolph Carter. Inside she gives tips for the Junk Hunt! Essential tools, a junking survival kit, haggling, how to dress for the hunt, and something I really need RESTRAINT!

Welcome to the blogging world. I just started my blog in September so I can relate to the frustration you feel when trying to figure out just how to do this darn thing. I love all your posts. I'll be adding you to my favorites.By the way we're sort of neighbors, I live in San Antonio. just-a-little-bit-shabby.blogspot.com

Hi Candy~
So glad you stopped by, I love meeting new bloggers. I am new too. I love all your posts, and especially that poem. I call myself and artist, but I also call myself a junker. I was on the curb today gathering up some good trim to make some picture frames. I love finding something I can use. I will make something to put on my wall using that poem. I love it.
Smiles,
Pat
