What?! Another Giveaway??! Yep!

And this is WHAT?? I love going to Harbor Freight, browsing around, trying to think outside the box...I found these....
The big round circles in the first picture are magnets...these aren't real heavy but when you put the two magnets together it is just tight enough to hold the glass so you can solder without it moving...It works!!! I love my new toy! Then there is this...an old fork..I've been wanting to make one of those fork easels...so I played around with the tines...
I almost forgot...we have a "granite" store near by. We stopped by over the weekend and looked in their dumpster (its ok to do that there) and I found this beautiful piece, just right for soldering
And it all came together...would anyone like this??? I'm giving it away...Yup, the fork easel and the charm. I forgot to paint the other side, so its blank. You could add a "rub on" on the back side. Anyway...You all have been sooooo nice and wonderful!! So, answer this question, what is your favorite TV program. I'll pick a winner over the weekend sometime.

I think that's adorable!

By favorite program, I guess the only thing I religiously watch is Army Wives on Lifetime every Sunday. Does that qualify?

Well, I am torn between The O'Reilly Factor and Biggest Loser. I like Biggest Loser because it has a positive message, ('cept when Jillian is screaming the f word at some poor player ) and happy endings. :) Well, Then there is Frasier.... lol !! I guess I watch too much TV. :) See, I have to win this, because if I tried to make my own easel, I would end up jabbing myself in the eye, or b*tt and , well, that just wouldn't be too pretty. Did you ever see "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels" with the Fork with the cork on it ? lol !!

Ohmygosh, how absolutely creative of you to find that at Harbor Freight, honey chick!! My hubs and I love going there....well, he more than me....but we've found some of the neatest stuff - a wrought iron trellis for $17.00!!! Yesssss, squeeeeeeal, $17.00! Hubs goes there all the time. Anyway, that is fantastic and I'd never thought of dumster diving around Sun Valley Marble! I'll do it next time I'm in Boise. Count me in on the giveaway because that little charm and fork are delightful. Actually, you were my inspiration for painting bird nests! Did ya know that, sweetpea?? I've never sold them but have my very first one in my new "PINK" office above my desk and it was inspired by little ol' YOU! Quite lovely, my little cherub....all you do....... :-)
Smooches,
Connie
