Ive been making all sorts of things since I was little. Being raised on a farm there was lots of room for creativity & imagination. A country girl at heart, then living in many different places, I have a broad range of what I consider Treasure. From a shiny piece of sea glass on Jewel Beach in Kodiak Alaska to a cup of Cuban Coffee in Miami Florida, then settling back in California, I have found treasure everywhere. But my heart belongs to the past. I love all things old & the hunt to find them. Whether to enjoy them as they are or to find a new purpose, I just cant get enough.

Shell to Full Fugure

From a shell of a mannequin to a full body for under a dollar. I love it when I can use what I already have!

Redesigned Christmas Ornaments

I couldn't pass up boxes marked 10 cents of glass ornaments at a garage sale. But 8 boxes? Here are just a few of the transformations I've done.

Re: Redesigned Christmas Ornaments

Thank you all for your sweet comments. Believe it or not the paint soaked righ off in water, yep just plain warm water. I'm kind of impatient so i helped it by wiping the outside. The inside was another story. Almost all of it soaked off, but there were a ferw areas where it stayed. I put in some rice with a bit of water and shook it. That removed all but 2 small spots. I used a small bebdable brush for those. The glass felt so thin, thought I'd break them, but all turned out ok.
