    Up-cycle Broken Necklaces 

    This weekend I took 3 broken necklaces I have had for quite awhile to fix. I also went through all my small craft jewelry pieces grabbed some glue and a couple other things I had on hand; Now I have 2 makeover necklaces I did not have to trash.  

     

    Both of these are magnetized necklaces. The one had a glossy clam shell pendant which lost a corner; I covered it up with a broken Indian Piece from another necklace my son and family gave me when the chain broke. With both necklaces I filled in missing gems with what I had in my stash and a couple small striped beads  on the fan pendant piece. Then I used paint on the beads worn off above the pendants.  Pretty happy since I love distinct non-conforming jewelry.

      Luv this. I’m getting into diy. I just redid an outside high table for a plant that was rusting. I also watch the DIY TV cable network a lot.

        I used to do so much of it, but now in a smaller house I do smaller things. Your tables sounds great. Maybe you will do a post with it’s picture someday?

      What a great idea for transforming all our broken jewelry. What woman doesn’t have a box of that stuff? I’ve loved all your other posts here too. In fact, I was that interested, I let my coffee go cold.

    Those Christmas Leftovers 

    I bet you were thinking, if anyone still has leftovers from Christmas, they are slightly Nutty. We are not talking though about food here today.

    You see the last few weeks of the Holiday season went by in such a rush, I was not able to post the actual handmade stuff I did this year. The items were included in my Christmas Decor in my home from a previous post. but I wanted to share them on their own. I did not even get any photos taken that were any good until this past week. I had taken some before Christmas, but somehow they were deleted? ( I still do not do well with my phone camera.) So at least before we leave January, here are the few items I made and had a joy making:

      Great ideas…all of them. I especially like the snowman and I think I must try the Christmas trees next year. A little late, but Happy 2018.

        Yes, I ran out of time. Hopefully next year, but Pinterest gives you so many ideas.

          I know…it’s a blessing and a curse at the same time. I need a gift certificate for more time!!!

          Where can we get one? Sounds good.

      What delicious left overs they were. Great eye-candy 🎅🏼☃️💙

      I’m still eating leftover Halloween candy. Fortunately, I always buy chocolate candies so I don’t mind eating them.

    Let It Snow 

     Socks without mates (You know that problem?) were upcycled into little quirky snowmen. I wasn’t totally satisfied with how they turned out, but good enough to use in a couple spots I needed something added in bare spots with my own Christmas decorations.

    12 Days until Christmas.

    Adventure Discover in a different Manner 

    This is my first post for the Daily Post Discover challenge, which is here :  Daily Post Weekly Discover Challenge.  They take a blog post on discover ( Find this on the upper left of your menu in your reader. ) and use one chosen off that link for a theme.

    This week the theme is ” Adventure.” They chose a great blog to “play off of” on hiking “adventures” ( If you like outdoors or hiking, in general, go check it out.) Maps, beautiful pictures and posts on stuff needed for hiking and more. The link above will take you there by way of this Daily Post.

    I haven’t been hiking for a few years and feel really bummed. It is not my top hobby or sport like it is for them, but I used to do it for exercise a few times a year. Needless to say, busy life has gotten in the way. Once and awhile I schedule it and something always comes up. What a great motivator and reminder this blog is.

    But every day can be an adventure for me.

    It’s an adventure to come with ways to use items in the crafts I love to do:

     

    New Tan 100%

    Using up things like these into something new. I am really into recycling or maybe it is called up-cycling?

     

    New Tan 100%

    Or These Buttons.

     

    New Tan 100%

    Bowling Pin Necklaces?

      The word “adventure” is great because it speaks to the many possibilities out there 🙂 I hope you have a nice weekend!

    Folded in 1/2 blanket. Measure folded area 29″. Put a stick pin at the mark to make a line so you will not cut over it.

    Out on town time.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Easy. It can be done with any old blanket, just make sure it will be long enough for how you would want it.

    Shades of Grey-SILVER 

    Silver vintage thrift store finds

    Silver vintage thrift store finds

    Some of my silver colored jewelry- Some is actually silver, some pewter, some antique, vintage. Necklaces are magnetic.

    These are diy stuff that is silver toned.  Back is foil print art with owl and barn in foreground. To the right is tin can and glass faux french candy jar. In fore front are those clear plastic furniture gadgets you place under your furniture to keep the floor from scratches. I painted them. Next photo will show the idea I came up with to use them for. On the left is the one faux mercury glass I kept from Christmas gifts I made as candle holders.

    In the back on the lid of my fax candy jar I used for display are how I used the underneath furniture floor savers I painted. To display pictures. School picture, you never know where to put. The one on the right is also. One of them. If you rember Sesame Street: One of these Things Doesn't Belong: you mjight notice a difference on the one on the left. Here a silver brush that broke made a great picture holder also. This one I did not even have to paint.

      I love silver jewelry. That’s what I wear.

      In fact I keep my wardrobe simple. Mostly black with gray, silver, and white. For years I had practically no color, but in the last five I’ve added wine, berry, and some pinkish berry tones and some jewel tone blue.
