Some Things Are just meant to go together


Sometimes, when I can't decide what to do with something I'll just leave it sitting on my work table for another day. The other day, I looked over at 2 items on my table, and knew they were meant to go together on a project.
This project, is based on one that Joy did last Christmas. I've changed it up a bit, but the basic idea was originally hers.

When I saw this particular, brownish clock face, with this particular brownish bird,
This project was born.

Similar story here, I saw this old phone back board with the bells attached but no phone, and a single old heater element sitting next to it at a garage sale. I knew they were meant to be for each other.

Ma Bell would be proud, I love the shapes of these old heater elements. So artistic for such a utilitarian object.

More fun in the mail box today. I received my shipment of flat black glove forms.

I see lots of projects in these. They'd be great for altered art, decopage, jewelry,
Notes to family etc.



One more thing. I promised to show you what I did with the old baby doll carriages.
Well one of them has been turned into a tea cart.

My Friend Linda says, "everything looks better with prisms" so I added a few.

It could also be a plant table outside.
