I collect vintage purses. The one on the wall holds babys breath, vintage lace gloves, next to a vintage hat.
Bought a beautiful mirror, had a crack in the bottom corner. I made a colage with tiny vintage mirror, old crocheted doilie, vintage necklace and clutch purse with vintage glove hanging out. I hot glued this all togeather, and then mounted it on the mirror over the crack. I better slow down on collecting, or turn my garage into my store!
found this rusty old stove in a pile of junk! It was beyond my restoring capabilities, so I scrubbed it and painted it with appliance paint, knobs red of course. It is a divider on edge of kitchen floor that drops down 3 feet so no one will walk off the edge! Cost was 50.00 total.
Old screen door with tall shutters, a wind break on front porch, have to change the curtains each spring, the sun in Nevada fades material fast! If you ever need ideas for doors email me I have a million!
old fence board with clothespins to hold my hubbys collection of hats. Scrabble pieces hot glued to spell Iowa State Cyclones his fav.
