They are local. I'll have to drive by one of their works of art and take photos so I can show you.

I forgot to mention something else I've been packing around... about 40 extra pounds of me. LOL

I've seen some wonderful frames made out of old windows. Also, a great mirror frame with key hooks made out of a section of window.

There are two older ladies (75 and 76) who use old parts to build garden sheds. They are so awesome!

I have old green wooden shutters from some old house.. (I bought at a yard sale).. I've had them for 5 years..piled up out back.. I don't know what i'll ever do with them, Hubs asks to throw them away every so often.. but i can not part with them!! lol

I also have ALL of the old windows and doors from an old (1920) cottage that was on our property when we purchased it, we had to raze it to make room for my salon.. but i saved EVERYTHING possible.. I also don't know what I'll do with that stuff. I used some of the doors in my new salon, and made a rack for jewelry out of 1 old window..any ideas for old widows/doors? With or without glass?

I know! And a lot of it is veeerryy old from when Hubs purchased the business 30 years ago! The stuff was old back then, and in storage. Old type set trays, old type..(letters) :o) On a couple of those old wooden trays I hot glued various kinds of "natural" items into the little compartments.. many items i found in bags of potpourri.. also tiny birds..bird nests..etc.. it is very cool..( if I say so myself). emoticon

I think I can top that. You know those tape measurers construction people use. They're metal strip that goes into a square holder.

Well, I found a metal, rusted first 6 inches of the tape measure on the ground. I picked it up. I thought it looked cool and could be used for some sort of collage or structure type thing.

I do have a book that shows how to make barbie clothes from socks.

i was going through my kids clothes that they had out grown and was getting ready to throw away a pair of socks that had a hole in them then i realized i could use the top part for my snow men's hat that i make at christmas time it made me think about what a pack rat i have become (cause you never know what craft you could use it for) i notice one of my friends had become one too (and she is a crafter) she even saves her light bulbs when they blow my question is what is something silly or not that you have kept because you might be able to use it in a craft someday???????????
