When is a cutting board not a cutting board - When it's an OWL.

Owls!!!!



I have too much stuff and occasionally I recycle an item into something else.   (As I've said, Pinterest is going to be the death of me.)    Many, I repeat M-A-N-Y similar items on Pinterest.  


The above pictures are when they are done and I put a coat of rusty vinegar on them to tone them down.   Lots of old bolts, screws, washers, etc.  



My bathroom is rather small, but full of art pieces I like.   They are so cute and since I wasn't using them as cutting boards, I like the new use.   I have so many more that I want to make, so stay tuned.

Have you ever painted a rock???

It's not like I am out of things to do.   I have more projects to do and will have to live to be about 200 years old to get them all done (besides, I keep adding to the list).  

Well, I've been into owls lately.  Will post some more pictures tomorrow.

Well, I've been seeing some really cute paperweights with owls on them.   Why not?   I gathered 4 rocks and painted them a neutral beige; and then added owls.   Freehand so I didn't have a pattern.   Might use a pattern next time.

Aren't they cute?   I love them.   A little funky, but guess what -- they work as paper weights.   Come back tomorrow for more owls.

What do you do with an extra bead????

I love beads and have lots but then I ran across some projects on Pinterest and I didn't have the right ones so I did what any good crafter would do, I bought MORE!!!!!

I wanted a sort of Boho necklace.   I have the beads done TENTATIVELY.    I am awaiting another package with some wood beads that might have to be added and it's easier to just wait than to restring the beads totally.   



I like this and I have lots of turquoise and red clothes and I think this will go well with either.  One string had one really fancy bead.   Well I loved the bead but since I had my centerpiece bead on the necklace, I decided to make a pendant.




The big bead really caught my fancy and the little extra beads were just in my assortment.   Really like this.   Now my husband says "do you have enough necklaces yet?" when I add another one to my collection.   My answer is "ALMOST ENOUGH".   That answer shall keep me going for a very long, long time.
