Monday musings...


After weeks in the upper 90's here in western North Carolina, it's so refreshing today to feel temperatures in the upper 70's.... ahhhhhhh, what a delightful day to "play" at my art table.  I love the work of Patty Van Dorin and find her blog so inspiring.  She really grabbed my attention with her entries showing the magic she made with a vintage metal rolodex.  I ADORE old office supplies and find them to be perfect to use in some of my art. So I began the search for one I could "alter".  What a score I made on ETSY when I found this beauty.  I've already put it to a perfect purpose, making mini collages for an online class I am taking...  I LOVE it when a good plan comes together...

Hi! I'm here from the FTB forum. Your post about vintage suitcases peaked my interest. I love them and just emptied a favorite. I can't wait to borrow your idea and fill it up with journals!

I'm also a big fan of Patty Van Dorin. Oh, to have a vintage Rolodex. I like what you have done with yours.

Absolutely LOVE your rolodex. Could you tell me if you used the cards that came with the rolodex or if you made your own? I have wondered how to tackle the punches you need if you'd make your own. You can email me at ankoning at pi dot net. Thanks heaps.
