craftylittlemonkey sent me a great assemblage shrine. I love everything about this.  The whole thing is covered in old patterns and looks like maybe some lace doily and some sort of netting.  I really like the ruler strip on the side.  The spool flowers are really cute and I really like when old gaming pieces are used in artwork. 



I think the reason I like this so much - see the little curled shavings?  That and the ruler remind me of my grandpa's workshop. Smiley




The heart looks pretty big here but it's not much more over an 1" big.  Love the color.

Even the back is nicely textured.

Thank you so much craftlylittlemonkey!

Yay, so glad it made it there intact and that you like it Smiley.
The heart is a bright pink plastic cake decoration from my dad's recent 70th, covered in red thread, glue and glitter. I love that the words showing near it say "Birds can fly".
The wood shavings, lol. I was at a friend's, a carpenter, rummaging his basement for likely bits and bobs and he picked up a wood plane and shaved a piece of wood. I went "OOH, CAN I HAVE THOSE?!", he thinks I'm mental Cheesy.

If you see anything familiar I "borrowed" all sorts of elements from other people's work that I admired, like the painted furniture tacks, etc. Y'all some awesome artists Wink.

The flowers are curiously wonderful. I love the clouds behind the dominoes. And the reuse of fragile pattern paper is excellent.

Love it!

Also, I am inspired to make something with old board games. They were a staple growing up and always make me smile.

Good job, craftylittlemonkey!

I'm glad that there were an odd number of people in the swap and instead of a round-robin I was greedy and took 2 partners Smiley
Because I have received 2 awesome packages.

JoyfulClover sent a fantastic seahorse sculpture thing.  It came with unpacking instructions and she had used cable ties to fasten the holder to the box.  Clever idea.  I will have to remember that one.

The holder looks like a banana holder painted, and wrapped with a ring binder, nails and wire.  It's decorated with metal flowers.  The seahorse is plushy-like and wrapped with more wire and beads. 

I love it so much.  Thanks JoyfulClover!
