Transformation Thursday...

Lots of findings from here and there....
Pieces of yesterday that caught my eye for one reason or another...
or for not reason at all...


...help me transform
rescued vintage books...

And sometimes when luck and inspiration hit me,
I'm able to tell a story....

Or even capture a customer's memory...

But many times, I feel like the books transform themselves...
I just happen to to be the one with the glue in my hand...

Wow! What beautiful altered artwork!!! I just love the bathing beauty one.....those old swimming pictures are just priceless! I made some of your coffee filter roses after you shared the tutorial! Thank you! It was so fun and simple! They will be poked throughout my Christmas tree among other places! Thanks for the inspiration!
