Door Knob and Oil Can Picture Holders

My sofa shelf, post Christmas.  Lots of faux mercury glass candles.

My new postcard holders, complete with vintage postcards from Venice.  This one is made from an old glass doorknob.  It was easy to bend the wire and stick it into the hole at the top.  Blinged it up by clipping on a vintage earring.  Lots of inspiration from Pinterest to make these, especially from the Petite Michelle Louise blog.

And this one, done with an old oil can.  Easy to make and as cute as can be!  Just stick a twist of wire into the tip.

The doorknob was a bit wobbly, so I balanced it on a old tin mold! Works perfectly as a stand!

And that concludes my clever craft inspiration, brought to you by this below zero snow day!

Vintage Golden Remix Jewelry

Over the past few months, I have played around with remixing a variety of vintage jewelry bits.
Old watch - turned into a "locket" removed the insides, added a bit of a dictionary and a rhinestone.
I think this might have been a clear glass drawer pull. Added other beads to bling it up.
Large pin turned into a pendant. Added another vintage bead and charm on one side of the chain as an accent.
Long chain made up from all the leftover bits of gold chains from other projects, all joined together.
All kinds of gold chains and mixed and twisted together.
Flower pin turned into pendant. Clipped onto on other mixture of gold chains.
I often play with all these bits off and on until I find a perfect combo. Enjoyed having a few snow days to finish up the projects.
