One of my favorite things to do on a Saturday afternoon is to go browsing around at area thrift stores. As an altered artist this is like going treasure hunting. I never know quite what I will stumble upon that will inspire me!
While I was out "thrifting" recently I spotted this garden storage box.
I just knew it was my lucky day to find something so unique. I had to have it!
All that I could think about when looking at the box was the Susan Winget Botanicals Collection by K&Company. The beautiful muted colors and nature inspired theme of floral & fauna was the perfect match for this box.
Besides, I had wanted to create an English garden seed box that would store my seeds as well as add a decorative touch to my home!

I challenge each of you to take a walk through your local thrift store to see what kinds of goodies you can find to alter. Each time I go to my local store there is a completely new selection as folks continue to donate their "junk" which then becomes my "treasure." At first it may take you awhile to see things in a new way, but I guarantee once you start spotting favorite treasures to bring home to alter there is no turning back!
Looking forward to seeing your great thrift store finds posted in the Spotted Canary gallery!
