A while ago, a friend of mine mentioned she was jealous of my scrabble letter find at the Second Hand store. I have had my eye balls pealed since for another such find. This time, it came with the game board! I did save the game board and the box, because they seem like they might make a nice altered item.
The wood tiles I placed into a little sauce jar all cleaned up with a green spray painted top & brown metal embossed center. Of course, I had to add some vintage buttons I found at the same time.
She also got ONE of my LAST Irini Button Flowers (also known as Get Creative Embellishments). Irini has a coolio Etsy store that I might direct your attention to in case you want to buy your own. I myself have restocked so I will be all set for a bit. ;-)
And, in case you are dying of curiosity as to where I took these dark flash ridden photos, on top of my hutch of course! Since packages this time of year take a bit longer, I decided I had to get it all packed up and ready and not wait for daylight.
Here it is on a nice sunny day!
I change it up every couple of months. Finally put the last item up there yesterday. Yup, it takes me a while.
I made the sparkly glitter tree out of styrofoam I also had found at the second hard store. I'm not sure it's done as of yet, but since craft stores are not close by, I decided to get it up there, off my scrappin' table and at least semi-on display while I think about it. Plus, I used like a huge amount of glitter and every time I move it, things get covered in sparkles, not like that is a bad thing if you are me.
Happy Sparkle-day, I mean Thursday!
