last month our school had an auction and the theme was "vintage travel." we did well with our small budget by creating vignettes of old luggage, globes and maps.  tables were topped with burlap and collections of postcards, souvenirs and vintage vases with simple arrangements.  our tall pilsner glasses were topped with a globe and lit from below.  my favorite creations were the large paintings based off of vintage travel posters.  a friend to our school and local art teacher julie from artrageous created paint by number drawings for us and i think they turned out to be fabulous!
