Everything is just too cool so far! Grin  I love all the bottlecap stuff and I'm soo glad that the "I puked in your car" note that sugar magnolia found made it into the crafty goodness.

Okay everybody, behold all the FOUND goodies I got!

A beautiful vintage apron that was found at a yard sale and hand stenciled.  I cook all the time and love aprons!  This one might be too pretty to get dirty though.


A paper mache bowl crafted out of old dictionary pages from one that was found in a parking lot. So creative and unique!



Stitchmarkers and a necklace made using found letters that were printed on shrinky dinks and then colored in with sharpies.  These are too cool for words!  I love stitch markers and am starting a collection to which these are the perfect edition.  Also, I can't wait to show off my new necklace.



I also got some rad vintage circular needles in their original paper package along with some really nice yarnall found in a "thrifty" way.



Everybody remember the creepy 'Eyes Wide Shut'/Vestal Virgin beehive hairdo photo and the ultra complementary love letter about Dug?  Well, they made their way into a bookmark.  I really needed a bookmark to, currently I'm using the doggy ear method of marking my place and I think the library might frown upon this practice...


Scatter stenciled this patch on a piece of the scarf she found embedded in the snowbank.  If I get time this weekend I'm going to stitch it to my knitting bag.


And last but not least, a stenciled card with a note!

I truly LOVED everything and am highly impressed with the creative efforts of my partner (and everyone else for that matter) in crafting found objects for this swap!

I recieved today from Ms Marple, Everything was so beautiful and well made.

So, here we go:



An awesome box decorated with a found swedish newspaper and inspired by the label she found.



A beautiful crotcheted birdsnest basket from a pattern found in a thrift store.



Another view of the birdsnest decoration and butterfly.



A beautiful watch found in a drawer at Ms Marples decorated with found broken jewelry.



Bottlecap magnets decorated with cross stitch



Marble and seed pod magnet and seedpod pins decorated to look like beetles (supercute)



Shell patches, I think I'm going to put these on a bag.



Two tassels, one with beads and wire, another with sea finds



Handmade beads from found pieces.



Found glass pieces from outside a glass factory in Sweden. (one I'm keeping for decoration, the other blue piece is becoming jewellery).

I love that alot of these pieces are inspiring me to think and keep working with them so that they will keep transforming and being used. I think this really embodies the purpose of this swap. thanks gain Ms Marple!
