Garage Sale TREASURES for Assemblage Art

Since making my first-and-as-yet-only Piece of Assemblage Art, I’ve been collecting stuff, and man, the collecting part is as fun as the making part….

I spent $58 and scored all this – YOWZA!!

Fancy Caligraphy set – I’ll use the nibs for some sort of head dress

Metal Filligree Mirrors and Porcelain Hands


DumbBell Weights – 8 of ’em.  Probably use them as wheels.


Candle Sticks that come apart into three pieces


Drafting Tools


Butterfly Head


Miscellaneous Jewellery

Eight Inch Letters – B  E  L  I  E  V  E



Fiskar Scissors – 22 Pairs.  I’m hoping that I can pry the plastic off and use the metal cutting parts as, ummmmm, Mouths?  Beaks?


Beautiful Red Dominoes


Licence Plates – 50 of em!!!  Torsos?


Adorable little Mini Colanders – Hats?


This beauty was something that a friend found for me at a Thrift Store for $25 (Thank you Lauren!).  I’ll completely disassemble it to get at the Keys and Key Arms – Wings?  Dragon Spikes?


Got and idea regarding what I can use this stuff for?
