The Traveling Salesman



What does canary bird seed, pianos, stamps and The Daily News have in common? Damned if I know...but I like the way they look when they are placed side by side in this collage. Enjoy!

The flea market brought many neat things for future mixed media projects...a 16-cup vintage baking tin; a broken clown head; a vintage children's circus book; lots of playbills from NYC shows, Springfield, MA shows, all from the late 30's and early 40's; a fabulous mini awl with a wonderful wooden handle; pair of antique glasses; mini salt and pepper shaped like tea pots; another blue tin; and much more. Books were free today and I couldn't get enough.

Meet Alice....she's on a 4" x 6" masonite board.
