One of the many great things about Flea Market Style magazine readers is that they are a crafty bunch! It wasn't long after the Fall/Winter issue hit the stands that we were hearing from readers who made their own versions of projects and items featured in the mag!
This map art project, by Jane from the Mamie Jane's blog, was inspired by the "For the Love of Old" story on the Jeni and Joel Maus family home in California. She loved the picture below, and used it to guide her to her project, detailed here.
Reader Kim Faucher was similarly inspired by the piece, constructing the artwork below after reading the story. Follow her step-by-step process on Donna Salazar's blog.
The suitcase shelf cover excited lots of readers!
One, Korrie Bastian, was moved to write:
"I *loved* the cover of your Winter issue -- with the suitcase shelves. Just wanted to share that I have re-created them in my home! Thank you for the great inspiration."
And Lani Thomas at Creekside Rummager shared her take on the grinding stone lazy susan!
FMS team member Margo ran into this group of readers at one of the recent Round Top/Warrenton Antiques shows in the Coles building. After noticing the FMS project "Sputnik" on a shelf, she introduced herself. Laughter and fun ensued (along with lots of pictures, of course!)
