Last summer when my sister and I sweated our way through about 100 garage sales in Oregon City (in unusual 100+ degree heat), we found a car full of goodies. But as the day wore on and the heat had taken its toll on us as well as on those selling, we decided to head home....then saw one last sign that we decided to follow up on.
The sellers were packing up and giving up so had a huge number of free things, some of which went home with us. They also had this old shadow box made from an old wood-framed window that I gladly paid the $10 for. With its perfectly peeling old paint, the nice division of space, and a good depth, I knew it would be the start to a fun project.
I just emailed a picture of this as a submission to the Wild Women show. Fingers crossed!
