more recent flea market finds:

- dresser that fit perfectly behind my loveseat (now holds our videos & electronics manuals, $115)
- table scarf ($1)
- old wire bowl ($3)

I bought the wire bowl because I'd never seen anything quite like it, plus it was cheap - but I didn't know what I was going to do with it. Then one day I was browsing etsy for vintage things, and ran across a bowl filled with fabric balls! "Hey," I thought, "I have fabric!" Hmmm, that's an understatement, actually.

Yesterday I spent about 2 hours slicing fabric strips with my rotary cutter & rolling them up... this was basically free, when I looked at what I had in a new way!

Take a look at what you have in a new way,
see if you can find what you need right there around you in what you already have!
