Inspiration: flea market finds

I spent yesterday in Warrenton and Round Top at a HUGE semi-annual flea market.  I love flea markets not only because I cherish the thrill of snagging odd, one-of-a-kind treasures for my own home, but because I like to witness recycling at its best and I enjoy imagining each object's journey.

These bins of game pieces and sign letters were particularly gorgeous and it was fun imagining how many creative people will dig through them to spell out their names or to make beautiful new objects.  I'm also a sucker for alphabets and fonts and simply enjoy the forms of letters.
