Here are a few of the pictures taken today. I have made a few ornaments. They were not exactly what I had planned to do but it's what I ended up doing.
First. I got the big red vase at the thrift store for 9 bucks, the silver glass bowl was about 7......in this case I didn't do anything but stick them together. I used the open end down so I could secure the vase on a metal rod so it does't blow over.
What is it? dunno, maybe a bird bath? I will have to stand something inside because its a bit deep. The next one is an over large cup and saucer. I have attached a fitting on the bottom and a brass rod will screw into it. It will be placed in the flower garden among where the Black eyed Susans come up.
The next concoction is just to sit on the glass table on the deck. The fairy I just love but one of her pigtails broke. Didn't want to throw her out but because I have so much stuff around I had decided anything broken must go. So why not put her in the garden. I painted over the break and she finished off my table topper.
This next one will go on the front porch. In the teapot I will put an ivy.
Another broken fairy. She got her butterfly mended and I attached her to a dollar store plate and candle holder.
This one is smaller and is a candle holder as the base with a fancy plate and a blue glass plate on top. It needed something else.....a blue ball that I already had. That finished it and will just sit on a table on the front porch. I hope looking pretty with a white table cloth.
This is an old ashtray. I found long ago and this year is a tad rusty so I put one of the 3 blue dishes I found in it fo this year. It will be a bird bath. I got the three blue dishes and teapot for 7 dollars and used everything.
I found two bird houses at the the thrift store. I have put attachments on the base of both of them and they will now go on copper pipes in the garden beds. I have used up all my attachments I bought and there are still a bunch of things left on the table. SO ...........what next?????
I will be sharing this with
This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.
