My Wedding Dress and the Royal Wedding Dress

Ok I thought I would have some fun!

When I first saw Kate's dress I thought of mine. The fitted lace sleeves and lace on the upper bodice!

I designed and made my own dress 34 years ago when I was 19!

So while the top designers are rushing to make a copy of her dress I have one in the attic!

My dress cost 50 dollars! and her's 50 thousand!

I a princess for an hour, she a princess forever more!

Best Wishes to Kate and Will!

The Making of An Apothecary Jar

I came across the making of an apothecary jar from unwanted candy jars or whatever jars you want to use. A geat repurpose, recycle project!

Then I did a google search and found others.

A candy jar with lid and a candle stick holder, glued with 6000 glue.

This one is waiting for a candle holder or other small glass item to use as a pedestal My glass vase Cloche' with a new decoration. Plus a zipper and buckle for some fun.

I just know you are going to want to make some!

Unless of course you already have!

I ♥ Junk

One of the blogs I follow has a guest heart thursday - A place to share your heart! http://clytie-randomhearts.blogspot.com/ Well I found this heart painted on a tree while I was at a flea market!

I think it would make for a cute photo shoot for a young couple!
