Tease! Junk to Art - stay tuned.

What do these things have in common?    Stay tuned - this junk becomes art.   

Big Button "B"

I love buttons and I love letters on the wall.   I always have lots of buttons and use them in many ways.    This is my latest foray into button land.

I am sure you will be exposed to lots of other button projects.   I love buttons.

Crazy Mixed-Up Puzzle

I've been watching Pinterest for quite some time and have been fascinated with the altered puzzles.   This little puzzle was bought in a dollar store and was rather nondescript with numbers 1 - 9 on it.   It has been lying around for ages and I thought it would be the perfect choice for experimentation.

It was certainly fun to put together and I fully expect to find another puzzle to alter.

Don't lose your marbles!

A few months ago, right at the height of tax season, my husband was most frustrated and said "I'm going to lose my marbles".   I replied that he should not lose his marbles.   (Possibly I'm the one who lost their marbles?)     I set about making a container for his marbles (actually Aaron's) and a little assemblage of marbles, boxes, wire, bottle, etc and everyone's marbles should be safe.

Assemble - Assemble - Assemble

I love old light bulbs and save way too many, but here is the use of one.   Who doesn't have bright ideas.   

Numbers.  With my background in Finance and my husband as a tax preparer  - we have lots of numbers in our life.   Assembled in an old wooden 'in' box.   

I love old pictures.  I love the saving.   It says  "Don't expect anyone to support you.   Maybe you have a trust fund.   Maybe you have a wealthy spouse.   But you never know when either one might run out."  
I hope you enjoy my assembled items.

I love making things out of things most would throw away.   These are my latest adventures.
