The gumdrop hearts are gone......and the Valentine's decorations have been put away.
Time to get moving on some of those 'Winter' projects (organizational, creative and otherwise)!!
~BUT~There is always time for a quick stop by the thrift!!!
The 'stuff' was not plentiful, but it proved to be inspirational...
I scored a WONDERFUL 'how-to' book on soldering!! It must be a sign. Learning to SOLDER has been on my 'to-do' list for many years - all that seaglass that I have been gathering is just screaming to be made into jewelry, ornaments and the likes!! I think it may come to fruition soon!
I stumbled upon this tiny shell, delicately painted as a face, and I fell in love! Right now I'm craving anything seashore~sunshiny~beachy related... and how could you not love it? I was really impressed with how the artist put the cheek color on the backside of the shell so that it just faintly shows through...
My only other find of the day was this glass (Swanky Swig?). I'm not sure of it's correct title or maker, all I know is that it had to come home with me! Can you guess why??
In case you can't guess, I show you a couple of close-ups...
