Gallery open!!
132  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Two of my unusables become a terrarium on: August 25, 2010 10:07:35 AM

My little glass snail keeps falling off the table. Now he has no antennae!  So I made a safer place for him to live before he loses his head altogether! I took a glass display cover that is supposed to be upsidedown over some silk flowers or a statue, and turned it right side up. Then I took a widemouth canning jar ring whose inner bits have been missing for forever (and I kept telling myself, gee I can use this for SOMETHING...) and perched the glass within it. Now I have a groovy terrarium with moss and ivy, a rock and Sneed.
133  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / toy broom becomes wall decoration on: August 25, 2010 09:34:12 AM

When I saw this broom in the dollar store, I had to have it!! It is about 24 inches long. I decorated it by adding a ribbon and painting the handle with flowies.  It hangs in my kitchen, to go with my yellow, white and red themes.  thnx for looking!

the above has a background of mullein leaf.
the one below was fun to make.

this last one is not a nature one, but a Tokyo subway map zentangle.

thanks for looking!
135  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / my first ever chunky house (silo) on: August 24, 2010 01:57:59 PM

This was destined to be a gambrel roof house, but as soon as I put the roof on, it looked like a silo, and instead of being disappointed, I went with it!!

137  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / International Local Attraction T -Shirt on: August 23, 2010 10:21:30 AM

Our salvation army and goodwill has soooo many local attraction T shirts that they cant get rid of. I would LOVE  to have a local attraction t shirt from another country! Plus a small crafted item. Would anyone be interested in a swap like this? It might be hard to get enough international pairs lined up, but I would sure like to try.  And a t shirt does not weigh much in terms of shipping...

140  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / lamp nearly made it to the bilge on: July 05, 2010 09:07:49 AM
Here is what my final product looks like -

And here is what I originally picked up at Goodwill -

First I ripped the dingy silk covering off the shade...

then put nautical rope on to the lamp base.  (no in-process photo for that, as I needed six hands to do it.   I didn't have six hands, so i used my feet and knees. Wink )

Then I measured and painted these six panels.

The whale may be my fave, but the anchor is always a real love of mine.

 I chose M63 to put on the bouy 'cause M is my initial and 63 is my year.

 The flag also represents the letter M.

and glued 'em all on, a rather Hellish process...

then added rope to the panel divisions.

In general, I think my $1.29 purchase went quite a long way... Cheesy  Ahoy!!
