This is what it all started with. I'm at the Goodwill with Stacey and I came across this BEAUTIFUL tray. Now, Stacey laughed and said...you know, I cant believe they didn't throw this away!!..I in return said...oh no! It's so beautiful! Laughing I said "Its coming home with me!"
I didn't know what I was going to do with it, but I was excited...so I laid it down and we started picking out different things and sitting them next to it wondering how we could make this all come together.
I needed a way to hang it. Stacey suggested attaching this little hanger, so I drilled two holes with my new toy...(I got a cordless lithium ion dremal... I love it!) I typed "nest" on the center paper of the hanger. I also drilled holes to hold the little jar, that Stacey picked out. It was so much fun having her work with me on this. I attached the old lace so it could be untied to take off the bottle to fill with water for real flowers, It would also be sweet holding vintage flowers. I used some Omni gel to transfer the words "flowers for all seasons" onto the bottle The necklace was a little pearl bracelet that I aged.
I bent some old black wire, added sweet vintage buttons. I also soldered a copper wire to the back of the charm which is holding my painted nest. The tag is a vintage one, I added a little button and attached the description "nest" from an old dictionary. The old rusty bell on the shoe is original to be shoes, how cute is that! I added coppery colored glittered pins and more old buttons to the pincushion. Please check out my EBAY listing
