One of my favorite things is seeing a creative home - I love walking into someone's living space and seeing it filled with objects that are handmade, altered or are used in unusual ways. I am blessed to live in such a place, and to know & love so many creative people. Today I'm focusing on some of my own objects, and in a following post, the objects from others.
If anyone wants a tutorial of anything presented here, feel free to ask via the comments section.
I love birds. This garland is made of felt red-winged black birds. They have bright button eyes.
Currently, he is whitewashed with black horns and carries the motto "Lasciate ogne speranza, voi ch'intrate."
Then, just a short couple of weeks later, I moved out of this house, and the dresser lived in a small storage closet in a U-Haul in the middle of nowhere in Connecticut for about a year and a half!
My wonderful father drove all the way from Southern Illinois to Connecticut, retrieved it along with several other items, then drove all the way from there to here in the Twin Cities region of Minnesota. I cleaned it up and added beautiful golden rub-on birds found in the scrapbooking section of Michael's. It now holds patterns and pattern pieces.
Generation T books, and this is the braided rug project. But no matter what I did, the rug desired to become a bowl - so I just let it happen. It now sits on top of the fridge, holding onions and potatoes.
Thank you so much for visiting me, and I'd love to hear about any of your favorite projects involving altering home objects.
