WOYWW ... Car Booty...

...Today is Wednesday which means that we all follow our esteemed leader Julia and show off our messy desks, I mean workspaces :O)) Nothing much going on on my desk this morning...oh, apart from a haul from a Car Boot that I managed to haggle for when we visited Mum & Dad-in-law on Mother's Day...the local car boot is usually bigger, so I had to scratch around to get what I did...but check out those two cabinets just ripe for altering...let alone, those heavenly ickley birdies...they are made from a heavy resiny type of material...not sure what I will do with them yet, but no doubt I will find some use for them!




I am off to snoop, I mean look, at everyones desks now and see what art is being created...and then I plan to make some art myself :O)




Short n sweet today...have a great day everyone...

Rosie said...

I've got a cabinet like that lurking in my "waiting to be altered" box! Great minds think alike eh? Or maybe I'll just wait and see what you do with yours ....

Cardarian said...

You made out like a bandit! :)

Those cabinets look very interesting. I can never manage to find things, although there's an auction tomorrow morning nearby, I may have to go and have a look. xx

craftimamma said...

Lots of goodies there Hels. I think I have to check out the local boot markets. Haven't been to one in years.

Have a good day.

Hugs

Cor you our clever with those finds. But I just cannot get out of bed that early, they are all packing up when I see light of day. Are the birds suitable for mold and pouring?

LadyBug said...

those cabinets and frames are great! I never seem to find anything good at boot sales just a load of tat :(

Toucan Scraps said...

They look so inviting, I know you'll turn them into something amazing.

Linda Elbourne said...

Fab booty finds ... not sure about them there birdies though ... I shall await in interest to see what you do with them ... something lovely I am sure XXX

Julia Dunnit said...

I deeply suspect that waht you make as art today will quaify as art far more than what I'm planning! See, I would've walked past those little cupboards without a second thought....it's just not in me!!

Angelnorth said...

Looks like a good car boot session to me - sometimes big ones are worse because you just get sort of dazed and probably miss some good stuff by the time you're half way round!

sam said...

I haven't been to a car boot for ages - I gotta admit though I only look for craft stuff. Not really ventured into altering things - wouldn't know where to start to for a start hehehe.
Great finds though

Wipso said...

Love all your finds. Do hope if you are altering them that you will show and tell later. Look forward to seeing the results.

Tracey said...

Helen said...

If I had a car, I could go to car boots and find great stuff like you - I wish! Love those cabinets, do get cracking and show us what you do!!

Clare said...

It looks like you have a lot of fun in store with your car boot finds.

Ikki said...

Hi Inky fingers, it looks to me as if you are going to be a ickle busy! Thanks, heard the ping, and sending it back but I'm sure you will not need it! Love your art on your last post - you really do produce some fabby work! ikki

butlersabroad said...

Susie Sugar said...

Wow all your goodies look fab

Kaz said...

Wow you picked up some fab bits there. I hope you alter them quicker than I do. I bought a key cupboard off ebay 'to alter' and all I've done is take the door off the front and stack my DI's and Alcohol inks in it! You can just make it out on my desk.

Wendy said...
