I am lucky to have friends who bring me treasures. 

Since I rely on found objects for my artwork, I rely on people to bring me wonderful ancient and rusty objects to add to my pieces.   

I recently created a bee hive from large architectural tubes from a retiring architect friend.  I love receiving old old books in lovely tattered conditions from a librarian friend.

I frequently am gifted odd items from another mixed media artist who found they wouldn't work in her art.  That is a lovely perk of being in a community of artists...  sharing thoughts, ideas and objects.

Objects are left outside my studio door like forgotten children looking for a new home. 

Today a friend asked me...I have 100 45 rpm records - would you like them? 

Hmmmm.... now the creative process begins.
