Weight just a minute...there's junk in those paperweights!November 17th, 2009 in blog
I picked up a few "empty" paperweights at a fleamarket - and wanted to fill them with some fun vintage things. So, here they are...
These were so simple (the hardest part was figuring out what to put in them - so there were some "do-overs" along the way - decisions, decisions!!!).
After filling each one, I cut circles out of some vinyl wallcovering sample books that I got from work (I couldn't let them go to the trash...), glued around the outside edge, flipped them over, then weighted them down so they'd seal tightly. Voila - some unique paperweights ready to go to market (the Scott's Antique Market to be precise)!!
My fav...the clock face! (surprise, surprise!!)
The Scott Antique Market is on November 28th and 29th (Thanksgiving weekend) at the Ohio State Fairgrounds in Columbus, Ohio - in the heart of Buckeye Country (woohoo...Rose Bowl here we come!!). And, we've got so many cool things to sell - our number one item will be...what else??? Lots of clocks!!! And...we've got some great handcrafted junk, collages, jewelry, furniture, vintage coats, lots of silver (platters, bowls, etc...), and a whole lot more! It'll be a great way to kick off the Christmas season - and this show is always a crowd pleaser - two full buildings - a few hundred vendors - and it'll be wall-to-wall people on Saturday! Here's the link if you're going to be in the area... http://www.scottantiquemarket.com/ohio_shows.htm - hoping to see a few fellow JMS members there.
Thanks for checking out my post - I'll be sharing a couple other projects soon. So, stay tuned for more from my basement - :)
