Sorry for the delayed post here...I couldn't find my camera cable and there is no point in posting without some pictures, after all! (Of course, now it's Friday and it's raining HERE...).
It's been a loooooonnng time since I got down to Long Beach. Of course, it's been raining on them the last few months, so I guess I didn't miss much. No rain today...78 degrees! It was hot. And the market was hot...here is what I scored.
And here's the little stuff. I can't wait to put that battered round keyhole (?) onto one of my book covers. I am trying to make the faucet handles into necklaces, though they may be too heavy; we'll see. I have no idea what the three round disks are, but they were just too neat to pass up. They are almost like pulleys, but they are covered with what seems to be a leathery material. Interesting.
I'm excited about this last piece. It's wood. The numbered holes go all the way through. The metal circles along the right side are angled. I'm going to flatten them out or bend them even more. Either way, I think I will be doing some kind of lacing number for the front of the book. We shall see, but I'm looking forward to it.
And the last thing of the day, because after all, I am sewing books..
