Two Posts in one day!

vintage flower and glass buttons
This is such an unusal sparkly vintage glass beaded leaf.
Aged Crackle finish

Bracket
Beaded Tassel
We all thought the Vegemite tasted like condensed thick soy sauce.
What do you think we have that the Aussies dont?
Here is my latest creation. I LOVE it. I painted the cone then put a 2 step crackle med. on it, when dry I rubbed it with some metallic black, and couple of golds. Instead of trim around the top I painted it with the same black and added gold dots.
I found this gorgous black beaded tassel. I made a copy of a vintage calling card. I added 3 beautiful vintage glass buttons. Not very valentinie (is that a word?) How about I call it "Paris Chic" Please let me know what you think...now I've got to go get it put on Ebay...
It is sooooo nice having my computer back!!

I love the little birdie on the spoon in your banner, is she for sale?
This is my first visit to your blog and I see delightful things, things that warm the soul on a cold winter evening.

Oh my goodness, I LOVE it too! I really enjoy the instant gratification of crackle paint. It's not like some mediums where you have to wait hours to see some fun results.
I'm adding you to my blogroll!
Thanks for visiting me today...
