More Projects etc

Thanks to everyone for all the great ideas about the Spring Wreath. I think that adding lights would not be the safest thing because of the Metal vs Electricity element. I love the idea of the hinges being butterflies and the faucets being flowers, Thanks Debbie. I also like the idea of adding little marbles or glass beads to the faucets. That would also give it a little sparkle. These are all great ideas and I can't wait to have time to work on it some more.

As I said in the last post, DH was gone all last week. I never realized how bored I get without him here, but I found myself doing projects all over the place. Here are a few more, when he got home he was surprised at all the "changes".

This is just an old rusty lantern, with misc this-n-that inside. I tried a white-ish one but it was too cottagey for my house.

This is actually 2 pieces of wood, that I purchased from one of my junk vendors.
I attached them in the center

And added this wooden rose piece that I had laying around
I needed something new above this door. One thing I did was to put the hangers the same distance as the existing nails for the piece that was up there. That way I didn't have to put any more holes in the wall.

I had this stove front piece in my booth. I really liked it and thought it might just work over my stove. just used some home-made S hooks and attached it to the grate that I already had there.

And I even had time for a few new jewelry pieces.

This week has been filled mostly with work (real job) and finding junk.

I'll be at Our Little Corner all day tomorrow, putting in my 1 work day a month. I've got a car load of new stuff I'll be putting out too. So stop by if you are in the area, I'll be in the Pink Building from 11-5.

Love the stove piece hanging! Rust is one of my favorite colors. I like to say that in our world, rust is an expensive commodity!

What you did over your patio doors is great and I also like the lantern filled with odds and ends. Must remember to try that idea with my Christmas's gold.

Much success in your sales!
