A Thrift Store Find and some small crafts.
I found this framed print at Goodwill. It had an ugly gold frame. I gave it a good update by bringing out my trusty spray paint can. I think it looks much better being black.
These two sachets, started out to be one purse. It did not work out, so I regrouped.
I made the stands of these two bird houses by recycling a spool and a round card board piece. The piece came out of the package when I bought two new skillets. It sort of looked like a tape roll. It was just the right size for two Cd's to be glued as a top and bottom for the base of the stand.
I love how this little canvas turned out. I started off by painting over an ugly picture of a pear. When the paint dryed it came out with this crackling effect. I just loved it so that is what the whole design of the campus was based. The flowers were off an old floral wreath. I cut out the heart out of scrap paper and added some bling. I also glittered the heart and the canvas. I used a punch to punch out the butterfly. I glittered the butterfly and used some bling down the center. The lace at the top was some left over from another project. The little sign says "My Favorite" that was purchased in a package of the other little signs at the craft store.
I brought this box home from work. It held my business cards. I up cycled it by adding scrap book paper and flowers.
