Just Junk

I must admit this idea came from another blog on my list at the right, Round Barn Potting Company. I have an unlimited supply of pickle jars!! So I used this to hold some of my junk stuff till I am ready to put them to use in another project. I did this over the holiday break.

Since I have been busy latley I haven't had the time to create something new, but a new Magazine called Flea Market Style came out It inspired me to use some of my junk in just decorating! Link also to the right.

The old glass globe below is a fav of mine and I am waiting to find just the right idea to make it special, it currently has a candle in it but doesn't show uo due to the flash.

The fan Ibought last summer for 1 dollar! An old part of a book wrapped in twine and an old paperback book folded into a tree, I made some of these around Christmas time, I have plans to add a rusty star to the top and spray with glitter, for next year.

In the magazine, if you seen one the folded pages of the book could be put to good use, a later blog post!!!
Using twine to tie around old books came from the Round Barn Potting Co.

Boy Girl Collage Assemblage

I made these years ago when I first started doing old stuff on collages or as
some call them assemblages.

Click on pictures to make them larger to read the poems
and other words.
