My husband bought these three little metal frames at a second hand store for $1 and they've been sitting around waiting for something to be done with them. So finally, about 2 weeks ago I got around to it and made these three collages. They are supposed to be fairy godmothers one for hope, another dreams and the last one wishes. Each one has a magic wand made from a sewing needle. I'm really pleased with how they turned out.

Those are wonderful! They'll look great grouped together on a wall.

Thanks folks. They were fun to make and I do really love them. My hubby is the best for finding gems in junk and thrift shops. They still had their original price stickers on them (75 cents).
