I spent right around $60.  After I finished my father said that yo can go to the electrical department and find a similar product at 1/2 the price.  I'll ask him exactly what it and update this post when I have it...I am glad you like it!
24  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Shell Flower Mirror (picture crazy) on: April 12, 2013 04:17:29 PM
I recently went to Florida on vacation.  In the house we rented I saw flowers that were made from seashells.  How had I never seen something like this before?  I fell in love with the idea (which I now know is a common idea) and combed the beach every morning for shells.  I couldn't find any shells like the one I saw in the rental but I found thousands of other shells that I thought I might be able to make into flowers.  My boyfriend and his family all thought I was crazy because I literally brought back 10 pounds of shells.  I really got into all shell crafts but the best of the bunch is the shell mirror.  It turns out the shells I collected make awesome flowers.















Thanks for looking

I saw a shoe rack on pintrest (sorry I don't have the link) and decided my closet had to have my own version of it.  I dragged the boyfriend to Lowes (through do you really have to ever drag a guy to a place where they sell tools?) for some 6 inch pvc. He is far better with power tools than I am so I then had him cut the pvc in 12 inch long section.  As he cut, I glued the pieces together with normal pvc glue.  I glued each row then glued one row on top of another.  The final step was to attached a piece of wood on top to hold the boots. 

I love how it turned out...


I had some leftovers and decided my awesome shoe rack required a closet makeover.  I have a scarf obsession and never had a good way to store them.  I thought that if I could cut the pvc in 1 inch slices, tie them together and then hang it from the wall somehow I could then put the scarves through the pvc.  I was right, it is so useful and holds every one of my million scarves.  I recently saw a similar idea on pintrest...I thought I was unique but its still cool  Smiley







yay for closet makeovers!

I am a property manager by trade and we have serious key issues.  I am not kidding when I say that we have to change the locks on rental units every week.  Either the tenants are locked out, a lock "breaks" (someone kicked it in), a tenant moves out...etc. It seems like every time we really need to find keys suddenly all copies of the needed key mysteriously disappears.  I say "mysteriously" because for real it seems like there is a key stealing monster out there. Needless to say keys are the bane of my existence. About 3 months ago I decided that something cool needed to be made from all the extra useless keys.  I came up with the idea for a lampshade/lamp for my office.  I then decided that the keys needed to be blingified because I am the boss to a bunch of hardworking men and they would be horrified/amused by it.  I have a fantastic supply of bling thanks to my sister working at Michael's and a huge jar of whimsies that I have collected for half my life.  I finished decorating 20 keys before I found the correct lampshade to attach my keys to...a purple shiny material perfect for horrifying the guys. 

Final product


Keys up close


























Thanks for taking a look.

All of the pieces are beautiful.  It is amazing to see what people come up with when the guidelines are just to be creative.

I received this WONDERFULLY creative piece of art.  I am really into multi media art and I love all the different mediums used...very inspiring.  I am not sure where this picture will end up going because I am about to move, but it will be going up somewhere! I really love it!
