31  Steampunk Candle Holder in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by ehinders on: March 01, 2013 11:35:02 AM
I had this taper candle holder/lantern thing sitting around forever. Decided it was perfect for my partner for the Steampunk for the home swap.



I painted the wood with hammered copper spray paint, added a string to the dowel that pulleys up the candle and an old lantern part to wind the string around:

I wanted to attach the string to a pulley system, but couldn't figure out how to do it without making the piece even taller than it was. All in all, I think it turned out pretty good.

I love the marbled box.

I received from dustyfro the other day. Prepare to Pin! Wink

First, an altered art piece:

My absolute favorite thing, a steampunk teesha moore style pillow cover!

the embroidery is awesome dustyfro! I love all the gears, the buttons, everything. It fit a pillow form I had perfectly! Also, I didn't take a picture, but she used cute little hooks to hold the back together.

Finally, a piece that didn't make it, a clock:

dustyfro, if you could post a pic of it before you sent, I will glue it all back together.

I was so spoiled. Thanks so much dustyfro! Hopefully, your packages should be there today. Smiley

Love those gloves. Smiley

I received my hoopla yesterday from thehappycrochetchic:

OMG! My very own Serenity! I Love it soo much. I don't have many Firefly goodies, and this will be great for my wall of geek I plan on putting in my craft area.

Thanks so much!

K-star and LC, sending hopes and good thoughts your way. Money is super tight here as well, so I know what that feels like.

I got a little more stash used up. I had bought some cute hand towels last Easter (yep, almost a year ago.) to make baby bibs out of for gifts to have on hand. Finally got around to sewing them up:

here's one on a doll:

I have a few more of these I think I need to sew up. It would also get rid of the t-shirt ribbing I bought for these.

So..thinking of joining in for the first time. I wanted to know first if anyone would be interested in these flowers I made from old ties:

I left the backs undone for now, so they could be a pin or a hair flower depending on which clip I finish them with.

I was also thinking of offering some thread catchers like this one:

what do you guys think? what other stuff is eveveryone looking for? I'd like to offer some stuff that is different. Thanks!
