Some pretty stuff!

Yay I have a moment to make a post!! Last week I went to a flea market and found these! I bought five cigar boxes of these vintage watch crystals. They were all full. They were from Germany and France. I did wash them up, I saved the stickers of course, and did this with a few of them.

I started with a scrap of scrapbook paper and added some vintage lace and a handmade cameo, made from polymer clay.  I then glued the two together.

I like the way these turned out, but I need a different glue. This one leaves a white residue on the inside.

I found this little dog tag. I just thought it was neat and for only $1 I'll find something to do with it. Maybe in a collage!! You might see it herewww.twinkletwinklelikeastar.blogspot.com for another Summer of Color! This year is icecream colors! So much fun you should go and join in as well!

Last but not least I bought this little beauty. This was before we knew my daughter was having a boy. I thought she could decorate the baby's room with it if it was a girl.

 Well, I have no use for this little thing now, but I still love it!

It has the original lining and the handles and lid work. Oh well. I'll just look at it for now!

Wow, those watch crystals were a great find, and I love what you've done with them already. I think that Ranger's Glossy Accents are good for this kind of project and it dries clear.

The baby basket is so cute! Maybe keep it for your daughter's NEXT baby...........?!
