A Modest, but Tasty Score

A Sunday morning at the local swap meet,

yielded this amazing item, in its original packaging.

I had no idea what it was, but when I brought it home, 
Margot - who spent many years in a dark room -
informed me that it was used to make the "fuzzy edges" 
on those old oval pictures.  Sorta like an 
antique photo shop effect tool!

Also picked this up, soon it will find its way
 into a shrine or assemblage.
A fun morning for a total of $3.00!


  1. Smart shopping. Don't you wonder just where the vignettter had been residing all these years? xo

  2. Marylinn - It is amazing what surfaces at swap meets and flea markets.
