Junk from Home

When I purchased all the hardware at the flea market (read previous post). I had some idea's what I was going to do with some of it. The always awesome Rebecca Sower, has starting a series of sessions titled Handmade from Home. Her idea is to make things using what you have around the house. Well wouldn't you know the first session she did a wind chime using keys and a faceplate. Well, duh! Why didn't I think of that? So I put off the laundry and unloading the dishwasher. Ran right into "my space" and started creating. I had bought a bag full of bells at the thrift shop and used one of them along with an old necklace. Mine will hang in the house ,so I added some vintage lace and ribbon flower Hopefully that little bell with scare off the dust bunnies. Okay, I have played long enough, back to work
