Owl planter find

Hello Friends!
This past weekend I went out to some yard sales. I didn't have much luck but I did manage to find this fun little hanging owl planter. I thought a quick little paint job and this fellow could be quite spectacular. I got him for a whopping $2.00.

I used this spray paint that I got at Home Hardware for $8.00. I put two coats on the planter and let it dry just over a half hour in between coats.
 This is the final product. I think I'm going to use it as a pencil holder on my desk instead of a planter.

 Here it is again!

What are some of your favourite finds?

Summer time crafts and Jewellery

Well I still haven't got into the swing of writing on this blog regularly. I guess regularly isn't quite the word when it's been six months since my last post. I am going to try to post more *regularly* but I can't promise anything.
I am a teacher and have the summer off. I spend my time making and selling crafts and just enjoying the sun. My parents have a place up north by a Lake and it's beautiful to waste your days away.
I have recently made a whole bunch of new jewellery, coasters and pet bandannas. I posted some photos on Facebook so you should check them out HERE!

I will give you a sneak peak at what you might find....
Here is a Sterling silver Love necklace
Travertine tile coasters
Fun flower material necklace
Ceramic tile coasters

Pet Bandannas that the collar slides through!
And lastly a multi strand glass bead necklace.

What have you been up to this summer?
