Here is what I did instead of housework Thursday.  It was raining so I couldn't do yard work.  I think it was a day well spent.

These pretty flowers were colorized with Vintaj patina product.

Here are the product and colors I used.

My work space.  Look at all the colors Vintaj makes.

Reuse of Thrift Store Find

     I work at a homeless shelter once a week helping the people that stay there make jewelry that is sold in some of the local giftstores to help defray some of the shelter's costs.  Sometimes the people sorting the donations run across broken jewelry that they give to me.  They like to see the things I come up with from the unusable finds.  Here is the latest creation.  The cameo pendant is new,but the chain is from the donations.

Pretty new necklace I made with components from Dry Gulch and vintage buttons.


 I think it looks even better up close.

Aren't these bird houses cute?  I took them to the Artwalk in Joplin, MO and to Repurpose Boutique in Carthage, MO this weekend and sold all but one.  I guess I better get busy making more.
