I'm new to your blog, I love your pictures! Don't you wonder the history on the found treasures....something like your rusty scissors? What more is hidden?

Again, you have delighted the eye and inspired my heart. I keep thinking of what you could do to share this with more people. This should be seen, your name should be known! Perhaps take your photos to a gallery? Maybe you are already shown somewhere. Well, thank-you again for the wonderful experience. Cindy

Ooohhhh...yummy is the word that comes to mind!! Your scissors look amazing in that vignette. You have a gift for making beautiful vignettes!! I always look forward to coming over to see what you have. Everything is so gorgeous! I have a couple of rolls of jute twine and I'm lovin' the way they look together in your display. Ohhh, and I have a roll of hemp twine too...hmmmm....you've given me a great idea! Thank you for the inspiration!

Hugs,
Kathleen

Ok now there is going to be a run on rusty scissors on ebay and the antique stores and maybe we should by stock in twine- hum which company would that be!!!

I cannot find any pretty twigs for my urns yet- I so thought I would find some just on a walk or something- might have to resort to buying some and that so goes against my thrifty nature!!!

Someone asked me yesterday how I would describe my style and I sorta explained it by saying anything old, rusty, crusty and cast aside is what I like to decorate with. That's how I think of you too. Most people (without vision!) would have thrown the scissors away because of the rust. But you got inspired!

I love it!

Funny- I have some like that- less rusted- in my medicine cabionet that I have been known to trim myb angs with in between trips to the salon. I love the finger curl rest, don't you?

The art you have created...WOW, with an old pair of scissors...you are truly creative & very inspirational....lovely blog!

Barb said...

Oh I love that!!!

Very creative to put those lovely old items in an urn, with moss.

Opened a small gift shop in May.
Hope you don't mind if i borrow that idea for display in my store. OK?

Looking forward to the rest of your grouping you are working on.

Blessings,

Barbara Jean
