My Latest Recycled Project
Pop and I had an eyeglass appointment and a luncheon to attend in town last night, so while we were killing a little time, I persuaded him to stop by the Peddler's Mall.He hardly ever goes into those kind of places, unless it is with some of the fellows. I always thought it would be nice if he would go with me sometime, so I have got him to visit 2 with me in the last month or so. Maybe there's hope of him going back again soon.Nevertheless, I browsed through a few booths.There were too many to see during the time we had to kill, but I got a few ideas of things I would like to make. Don't tell anyone, but that is the main reason I like to go. To Get Ideas.I had found a cloth napkin during one of my visits,that was made of the type of fabric folks are using for the Primitive pieces,I think.I thought I might find some way to use it.I had an 8 X 10 frame, made of barn lumber, which I had tried to use in a project, but turned out, I wasn't satisfied with it.So I pulled both pieces out and proceeded to make a framed verse. I didn't have the right material to finish up the wording for it, but I went ahead and fixed a verse on paper just to see if I would like it.I think I will like it fine once I have the material and lettering I want to use for the finished product.I had an old letter and key holder, that wasn't suiting me any longer, so I took the little hooks off of it and used them on my frame. Now I have a nice versed piece and a key holder combination. I like it much better than the 2 previous items I began with.Now that's what I call recycling!
