A Few "Pretties"...just because...

I purchased these glass pieces form an old light fixture a while back.

Their new purpose was "obvious" to me with that perfect little hole for hanging...

little twine and fun little junky hook detail.

I just used Mod Podge to attach some pages from the glossary of am old French textbook.

And used Gorilla Super Glue to add an assortment of rusty bits and pretty bobbles..."just because".  No real "purpose"...they just get to hang around and look pretty.  What a life :)

What are you up to this week?  I'm still busy, busy storing up my treasures for our booth at the upcoming JunkMarket Under Glass event coming up September 7-10th...get more info HERE :)

  4. So when something gets "old and rusty" it just gets to sit around and look pretty... so there IS hope for me ;)
