I always wait with bated (not baited) breath for Flea Market Style to come out. It is bi-annual, so it's a long time coming. It started 3 years ago and I haven't missed an issue yet. Ki Nassauer takes us flea marketing and shows what to do with all that great junque~the book shelves above speak for themselves! I have a huge collection of junky books I've picked up to collage out of or alter in some way or another. This is a fun way to use some of them up. And there is a great guide to the best flea markets around the country in every issue. This year I am hoping to get to a few!

I found a new way to unstick labels from jars on Pinterest, so I worked on my big stash of saveable storage jars. The recipe I worked out is 1 part coconut oil, melted and mixed with 2-3 parts of baking soda. Make a paste, smear it on the glue and let it sit for a few hours, then scrub it off under hot running water. It works best if you peel most of the paper off first. I envision my "new" kitchenette to have open shelves with everything stored in recycled jars. I may spray the covers with black chalk paint, so I can label them. If you want to check out my daydreams, follow me on Pinterest with these links or the button on the right. (I take no credit, I only collect what I love) Pinterest can consume hours, so use caution!
Well, I hope you all have a great week or 3, till I "see you" again!
