The Hunting and Gathering Report (with collage pages for you)

After my chiropractic appointment this morning, I took my newly aligned self for a little walk around Portland's Brooklyn neighborhood. I chanced into Brooklyn Antique Mall, full of reasonably priced goodies of all kinds. 

Today's Haul: An old Arabic/English dictionary, a 1918 Spanish textbook, a reversible Japanese purse, and a plastic thingy that should be great for cold wax texturing.

Japanese Purse: About 5 x 6"

There are some loose pages in the dictionary that I'll use for collage. I've scanned some of the pages as well as some from the old Spanish textbook. The textbook is ideal for an altered book.

Love the circular library stamp!

Below are some high resolution images from today's finds for your collage enjoyment!
