Worked yesterday at the High School and was wiped out for the rest of the afternoon. Got a second wind in the evening and worked on a couple little projects.
I've been making these cute earrings out of all the old jewelry bits and pieces I've been finding. I just stuck them on this wire thingy I had. Now, I'm thinking I need to pretty it up a bit, but you can get the idea. I am going to try to make a few more and I will take them to Farm Chicks to sell.
I had this little wire chair frame for a while and finally got around to putting a cushion, rick rack and some flowers on it. I have two other little chairs like this already in my house, so this one is going into a little art project I have planned.
The last project I want to show you was so much fun. I had this little straw hat that I bought at Expo last summer and decided to make it prettier by adding a few flowers to it. I have this thing about using my best stuff. I just don't like to do it, but on this project, I just went for it. I love how it turned out and guess what, I hardly made a dent in my flower stash. It was pretty hard to get a good picture showing all the flowers.
Anyway, that's what I've been working on.
Today I headed over to Monticello to drop off a few items and clean up the booth a bit. I found a couple little things there and at the Goodwill where I stopped on my way. Here are my prizes. Vintage print with neat white and gold frame, vintage basket, amature landscape painting and this little rhinestone pin.
