Santa Barbara Score!

And here's the lovely score from the Santa Barbara Trip.

From Art from Scrap - Appliques - flowers and nautical, 
and vintage Oriental wall paper,

vintage postcards,

old envelopes and a time stained pair of child's socks,

and prize ribbons from long ago horse shows.

From Antique Alley - a small tin Easter egg that opens to hold a tiny treasure.

From The Random Store - Pink and white cameos
 and a faux Bakelite jewelry finding.

And from Paper Source - a retro-looking Periodic Table, 
a constellation chart and colourfully painted clothes pins.
Can't wait to start using everything in future art projects!


  1. WOW!!! What a treasure trove! I am head over heels (no pun intended) in love with the little sock!!
    Good for you ~ can't wait to see what you come up with!

  2. bobbie - That's what i love about Art From Scrap. Who would expect to find something like that wonderful pair of vintage socks?! The ideas are already percolating.

  3. Haven't been in Santa Barbara in years. What great stores and great finds. xo

  4. Marylinn - It's always been one of my favourite places. My aunt and uncle lived therefrom the 1930's until the mid '70's when they moved up the coast to SLO county. We'd go to visit for the weekend every couple of months or so and in the summer, my sister and brother and I would each get to stay for a week on our own with them. They didn't have kids of their own, so you can imagine how spoiled we were when we were there! It's been interesting to see how Santa Barbara has changed over the 60 years that I've been going there.
