Believe it or not about a year and a half ago I didn't even know what a blog was!!!!!
I am blessed to have many fellow junkers in my life that I know through the spectacular junkmarket style site........and one of my buddies, Gretchen of Mimitorias designs was the person who introduced me to blog land.
Gretchen sent me the link to Karlascottage. Karla's blog was one of the first blogs I ever visited and
I was blown away by all her gorgeous creations.
I fell in love with the beautiful crowns she handmakes from old gutter screen AND so wanted one of them. I contacted Karla, but she was very busy at the time getting ready for Silver Bella and had no crowns in stock.
So sad was I and sooo obsessed with her crowns that that was what I was thinking about the day I spotted some ugly brass basket thingys in a thrift store.
WHOA----I thought-----there are my crowns!!!!
I made a crown template from some paper, then laid it over the ugly thingys and cut away.
I then spray painted, added sparkles, ribbon and vintage jewelry.
I so love my crowns and I thank Karla for the wonderful inspiration she provides on her gorgeous blog.
These are the ugly brass thingys in their glory prior to the wire cutters getting hold of them.
Happy thrifting my blogland buddies.
