More 'cool -from-crap' to come'?

                     here are some recent items i op-shopped with definite 'cool-from-crap' potential.



this shadow box with a suggestion of doll house about it is either going to display/store colourful rolls of cotton, or the teeny-tiny stuff that Claudine get's given that's always lost down the sofa/up the vacumn cleaner


with this brass encased glass box I'm either going to make a diorama of my own (ala emily henderson), or turn it into a terrarium thingy


and this doll house shaped advent calender in puke-green WILL be the advent calender of 2012, after a serious make-over

Hopefully after this lot i can put aside the doll house/miniature fetish and move along!!!

Sharing my second hand finds at Sophie's and praying to the thrifty gods for some blanket finds this week for my american braided rug project x

  4. Dare I suggest some of this 'crap' is already cool? No, I dare not, because I know how cool you will make it look.
    Every time I see something miniature/doll house related, I think of you. Yesterday, it was a collection of watch faces on a doll's house wall. Really looked good!
    Those blankets will appear, as if in a dream, I just know it!

  9. See, I think that green advent calendar is just fine as it is... But what the hell do I know, I wouldn't know a craft project if it bit me on the behind!
    You, on the other hand, have perfect crafty taste, so I look forward to seeing what you do with these treasures! xxx
