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!

It's a boy!!

Ok first I have to announce that we are having a GRANDSON! This is him right here! We went yesterday for Sami to have her sonogram done, lucky for her that had a cancellation that day so they fit her in! It is always so special to see these first images of the baby. You see that there is a little person in there kicking you! So special! Ok I'll be back later with another post. Gotta take some pics but I just had to share this first!!
