Garage Sale Gems

Brrrrrrrrrrrr... was it cold this morning at 6:30 a.m. Pulled on my warm socks and dressed myself up in layers, I even found myself putting my wool gloves. May and we're still getting snow in Northwestern Ontario, they call it gods country but mother nature sure has her hand in the weather. Oh well, when you love g'saling as much as I do you're willing to battle the elements for that rare find or great deal. I love recreating the items I find into works of art. Today I found these beautiful pendants; they were originally laced together to form a belt but I have a much better plan for these beauties.

Hi Jo,

Thanks so much for visiting my blog and becoming a follower. I would love to follow yours as well, but I can't find the google thingamagig to do it. After reading a few of your posts I find that we have much in common, daughters the same age,,,,well mine just turned 16 yesterday. You love to change things you find into treasures....I am so like that to, I find something at a garage sale and change it just like you. I love your sign by the way. Also, your business cards....I have those the same too, and a package of blank ones just waiting to be done. I saw someone else on some other website that had taken that tag to the next level and embellished it so much it was worth framing. Imagine all that work and just giving it away....haha....but they were beautiful and so is your art.
Nice to meet another fellow Ontarian.
Hugs Shelley
