Scrap 4 Art

Scrap 4 Art.

In my opinion...

one of Toledo's Best Kept Secrets.

Located at 1501 Adams Street in downtown.

They collect miscellaneous items

and sell them (on the cheap)

to people like me.

Now here's a sign that I just love to see. Fill a bag for $3.00! My kind of shopping.

My family waited in the back room where creativity blossoms.

Thanks for your patience boys...now get busy and make something!

I've seen this done before...just never actually being used as a cork board. Yep, you can find cork here...possibly the framing. they specialize in the unusual.

My reason for coming...this huge shelf filled with piles of fabric swatches. I think I'm dreaming...ZZZ... Zafus and Zabutons and zo much more!

I loved this window treatment. This just might find its way into my craft room. If you look closely you will see that it is made from household "trash" (treasure), i.e., lids, caps, colored plastic thing-a-ma-jigs. Hippie cool.

Here is the nice woman who was helping me...she is the artist of the following zipper tree. Yep...if you look close you will see it is made entirely of old zippers. Love it!
Talk about cool, they conduct classes for different groups turning trash into art! There are others like me...those of my kind. Here I thought I was the only one who couldn't throw "things" away. Brought a tear to my eye.
One of my favorites. Hands Around the World. A bottle cap work of art!
This pole puppet greets you at the door. I couldn't leave without getting her picture.
And...
I can't sign off without giving a BIG THANKS to
Rolinda , a new friend at Harmony in Life
for sharing this little gem with me.
It is people like you who make people like me so very happy!
Thanks for the gift of fabric as well...it was...such a Rolinda thing to do.
Creating Awaits!
