I loved making these, started with an ironstone plate and a glass pickle jar!
I added a large wood spool to the top (bottom) of the jar with E6000 glue.
I made a zipper ball, by winding a metal zipper around a styrofoam ball.
Add a part of an old book, vintage photo and a wood letter. Oh and some
shredded book pages to the outside.
What you don't see is the sjpping tape I used to keep the jar in place while traveling
to the antique mall and the scotch tape to hold the book pages, from flying all over the place.
The second one is a smaller one from a marcharina cherry jar.
door knob on top and some other porceline piece.
I side is a clock set on a tin jello mold, old photo and a quilt square.
I did something different in my gold frame this year. Four ironstone plates hung with command strips, and written with dry erase marker. And just this morning I had the idea of changing the NOEL to 2014!
First, I have these little mold stars, maybe used for cakes or jello molds.
Now I transformed them into Christmas tree ornaments.
I added burlap for the background, then added some found objects! and a little "snow".
Keys, bells, earings, and buttons were some of the things I added!
Ribbon and #25!
White earing that looks like a snowflake!
I had a bunch of these old tree lights, which might work bur they use too much energy, so I carefully bundled them and wrapped the cord around the wires, and added a wool scarf bow. (cut in half lengthwise)
This vintage tree holder makes a unique wine chiller,
When I found this large suitcase I knew I was going to make it into a chalkboard.
I taped off the part I wanted a chalkboard the rest of the suitcase was covered with newspaper as I sprayed the chalkboard paint on, outside this summer. After it was dry I hot glued on some trim around the chalkboard area. Sold very fast at Booth 65
I got 4 drawers at an auction, only one of them still had the frame, I was going to add a piece o wood to the top of the drawer frame to finish it, then I thought o seeing all the yardstick tables on Pinterest and thought that wood be easy to do.
This drawer also was missing th original knob, I had this glass one laying around
and it fit and looked good.
Cut the yard sticks to it and sanded the edges.
I aranged them on the top and glued them in place.
I opened another booth in a old barn in Gettysburg, PA, at this time it is all my own, meaning I'm not sharing it with my brother! It is a small space but it is perfect for me. I totally love doing this!
Can you see some of my JunkinJane repurposing ideas?
Hankies on display, the same way as I have them in my laundry room.
Old Atlas pages used as background for wood shelves and crates.
I painted the word VINTAGE on a ols piece o wood from an old door.
Old ladder is connected to two old doors. I only had about a week to find a ladder, everyelse I already had, I knew I had to have a ladder 10 foot long, when I found this one it was marked 12' when we got it home and my husband started to put it together it measured just under 10' so he made some extentions. You probably wouldn't have noticed if I didm't tell you!
The doors did not have knobs on so I made "handles" from old spoons to cover the holes and to hand stuf on.
I had a typwriter in my other booth and was going to bring it to this booth, bur I sold it thru facebook when people shared it, luckily I bought another one the next day!
A suitcase table with 50s stuff on it!
My daughter thisnks the little pink watering can is ugly, but she made a nice display with it!
Also, there is still room for more goodies!
One of my first posts here on my blog, was a pair of rubber boots with flowers in them! Still works today!!
