New from Old

Today we spent the day browsing around the artsy shops on Congress St. in Austin. I found great vintage items -- an small blue suitcase with an inner tray that would be great as an artist's tool box, a black box for holding records possibly, and a cigar box sized metal jewelry box. I'm looking forward to seeing what I can do with them. Also stopped by a huge thrift store and bought a pack of coasters, the lid to a steamer basket that could make a great cubist piece, and a new wooden canvas box. Great inspiration! Can't wait to get home and get working! Ironic to go on a trip just to buy an empty suitcase...
