A {Little} Angel - Salvaged Junk Project

I have been getting my hands dirty while sorting&purging the garage {more sorting... less purging}! Some of the items have been getting put to {good} use - like all of the 'junk' repurposed, here! 
Salvaged 'Junk' Angel
Made using old scraps of wood, furniture bits, hardware, tin tile, bed springs, and more - she is just the sweetest thing! 
Quite long; measuring 39" from tips of the toes to the top of her halo!
No project is complete without a {vintage} brooch!
A Thimble-Full of goodness!
Her hand holds a wire heart, simple cross, mixed media domino, old key, and some {vintage} tinkling bells! 

Enjoy this day!

Fall - A {MUCH} Welcome Change!

I HATE muggy weather... and, where I come from {a smallish town in SouthWestern, Ontario}, It seems as though the seasons have changed... and the Fall weather is {finally} upon us!  
This also means the house needs a little 'seasonal decoration' to mark this wonderful time of the year!  
Mantle - I decided to go with Owls - mainly because I bid and won an adorable, little owl in a recent auction. Also, they remind me of my Gram, who was a Tawny Owl in the {Canadian} Girl Guides. 
 {My Gram's 'Tawny Owl} ... and some twigs 'stolen' from my neighbour's yard
My 'auction' owl, a painted, vintage Crown Mason Jar and owls by John James Audubon
I made the bunting from brown, gold and burlap material I had around the house... a quick project {just cut strips of material and layer them... fold over and tie ... thread string through loop and hang. 
The leaves {on the stolen sticks and bunting} are cut from Pop Cans, using Tim Holtz die - Tattered Leaves.  I found a GREAT tutorial on this, using alcohol inks at... Saved By Love Creations ... the only thing I did differently as to add the veins in my leaves by 'bending and folding' them into shape. 
 {see... pop cans}
... and, also, the front door received a new wreath...
... complete with a second, adorable, auction owl! 

Hoping that your fall decorating is going well!

A Full Schedule...

It's been a while since I have posted - things have been so crazy, but I have a quick moment to post some projects that should have been posted quite some time ago for the Just Imagine Crafts Design Team! Well, as they say, better late than never!

Hello There.
I made this card for a new {online} Scrappy Friend! -Just a quick card using the Kreaxion's Circle Cutter and a new stamp from Creatiate's Etsy Store - some really amazing and fun stamps!

Make A Wish
This card was for my Grandmother's Birthday {June 01}.  I layered two inner punched circles and added a ring of orange under the top {layer} to make the punched flowers POP!  
Have a GREAT day!
