Happy Accidents

Digging in a box labeled Harley Tank ornaments, I found my daddy's old ash tray. Awhile back I wondered where it went to, I was feeling all sentimental about him and knew I had a few things of his, like this.

Why do they pack odd stuff up like that? I have found more odd things in other boxes and it's been over a year since we moved..lol.. but anyway I was glad this little piece of the past turned up. Now it's going to live on my studio table and catch all my 'lost' items..things I find and need to 'file' away in their proper cubbies.. I had a dream with my dad in it the other night, and he gave me a big hug in that dream, I woke up feeling so happy. A deep happiness, that you don't have often..it was nice..

Then this thing...what can I say about it???
This is not even what I had in mind when I started..but it took on a whole nother path.. What I had in mind was bigger and mounted on chip board to hang in the living room..but instead it wanted to be smaller..

These boogers turned out to be One and A Half inches by One inch....not even what I started to do..I used old hymn papers and backed them with Cosmo Cricket , so that touch of aqua shows and the back are pretty too..And the pearls, are a necklace thingy I bought at a sale, that has so far been used on 3 other projects, it was that long..

It now hangs in my bedroom over a full length mirror...oh well, another happy accident..
Merry Christmas!

That's the same size I use for most of my charms so I know what I'm going to do with some extra glass! Love it!

This is just fabulous...one of my favorite soldered pieces ever! Would Feb 7th and
8th work for you guys for our Big Girl Art Camp? I'll email in the next couple of days - we were just planning this morning. We really loved Paper Cowgirl and how wonderful to make new friends. Wishing you a prosperous and happy New Year. Hugs, Nancy
