It's Christmas time and I'm decorating. I've had my manger figures for years and used them off and on. This year, there will be no sheep in our pasture out front so I decided to put my manger out where it can be seen by all passing by.
I broke the glass in my Grandma B's picture frame. My heart sank. It was one using bumped out glass; not sure what that is called. It cracked her picture too when this heavy wrought iron bird bath fell on it. Long story. I calculate the picture and frame to be around 89 years old! It didn't damage the frame and for the last four years I've been thinking about what I could do with the frame.
It's summer and it's hot and I have all these crazy ideas in my head. I saw a FB friend's wreath (which I will share at the end) and it got me thinking about a tin owl that I bought several years ago and never really had a place for it until now.
My old bike from the 50's was great fun. It was handed down to me from my sister. I rode many streets of Inglewood back in the day. The bike went from LA to a small town and stayed at my parents where grand kids could ride it. Then I ended up with it and it sat in the junk pile! Then a friend thought he could restore it. Alas, the frame was bent. But he repainted it and surprised me by returning it. There was a moment I can tell you. So I put it out in the play yard as a decoration and there it sat until I was inspired by another DIY'er.
I was looking through the Hometalk project books and saw one using old baking tins. I was toying with the idea of a succulent wreath when this idea just popped into my head.
