Happiness for just $3.00 . . .
These four things are what I found:
An empty glass Tiger Balm jar that I don't know what I will do with, but it has Chinese calligraphy on it and it's weathered and worn. It's cute.
Old "Par Avion" postage stickers. Woo hoo! I will use these in collages and photomontages.
An old, faded, sepia-toned photograph of a Japanese building. This, too, will eventually find its way into a collage or photomontage.
And then a ragged, tattered old book that had been sitting out in the weather until it was aged to perfection! Lots of collage possibilities in all its stained and torn pages.
The key words here are "possibilities" and "optimism." I see these things, feel the adrenaline rush, and just know they'll be useful in the near future.
And three bucks is cheap for a bit of hope and happiness, right? Right?
