GIVEAWAY ALERT: SEE MESSAGE AT END OF POST!
I love participating in Susan's Metamorphosis Monday Blog Party even though my transformations are very basic compared to some of the other inspirational posts. Head over to Susan's Party by clicking on the photo below after you read about my transformations.
I ventured out on Friday to several garage sales and here is a sampling of some of the treasures that now reside at our home. If you want read more about these finds, be sure and click over to my recent post for Thrifty Treasures.
Here is what happens when you use a little spray paint, in green for me--my favorite color.
I also brought home a few pieces of vintage(?) jewelry that needed a little transforming as well.
This necklace was intriguing, but with every movement it tangles up immediately! See all those metal "swirls"? They add lots of flair, but lead to the nightmare of tangles.
I decided it would be a great source for a few sets of earrings.
These earrings below were not something I would wear, but I knew the moment I saw them that they needed to become a "Book Thong: The Sexy Bookmark". To learn how to make the book thong, just check out my tutorial.
I have so much fun giving these as little gifts to friends!
And these Hibiscus earrings, at about 3" long, were too cute to leave behind.
I just removed the earwires (which I recycled to use on the necklace to earring project above), added little magnets to the back, and now they are the cutest set of magnets!
