As you all know I just love to re-invent JUNK!!!!!  I picked up a crystal clock at the thrift store and was planning to use it for one of my clock projects, but wrecked the clock trying to remove it........there was NO way I was going to give up on this beautiful piece of crystal so just stuck a picture in to the center.  Voila, it becomes a beautiful frame!
The tag was easily created using an office supply tag and my paris stamp set and a rhinestone earring finishes off the look.

I am so enjoying all the Christmas ideas people are posting on their blogs and have been busy working on some projects of my own so will get some pictures up as time permits!!!
Happy junking!

I continue to be amazed at all the wonderful people I have met through blogging. 
Thank you all so much for visiting my blog.
There are a few people who frequently leave beautiful comments on my posts which I am unable to respond to as they do not have blogs of their own, and I do not have contact information for them.
I want you each to know that your comments warm my heart and leave me
feeling very much inspired. 

This is a little arrrangement I made from an old silver vase.  I added the crystals and stuck a vintage tree topper in the middle to add some height to the arrangement.

Thank you to each of you for the kind support and encouragement!!!

How far that little candle throws his beams!
So shines a good deed in a weary world. ~ William Shakespeare

Happy day my blogging friends.

Don't you just love finding new and different things!!??!! 
I am so excited about my find today that I have rushed home to take pictures to post on my blog in between all the sporting events we have set with our three boys.  On a quick trip into one of my favorite stores, The Passionate Home, I found these adorable Christmas balls stamped with fleur de lis (another of my favorite things).  One of the ladies, Elinor, made them and I just had to show them to you all.

For now I have just placed them in a white wooden bowl I have, put a mirror at the bottom for reflection, added the balls, a candle and a little fake snow.
A gorgeous, uplifting find on a rainy blustery day, don't you think!!??!!
Happy day my blogging friends.

I so love old vintage clocks whether they work or not........this project is a great idea for ones that are no longer working.  Simply take the back off the clock, remove the clock workings and put a picture in.

I painted the body of this clock black and left the number plate intact as I thought it framed the picture just perfectly.

And, of course, I just had to add some bits and pieces of vintage jewelry.

Hope you are all having a fabulous day.  Thank you to all who visit my blog and leave such lovely comments!!
Happy day.
