It’s Day #7 of Art Every Day Month in janet’sworld!
I had completely forgotten how much easier it is to get some art done when you know that each evening you have committed to blogging about it.
I’m trying to stay dedicated to finishing what I start, so in that vein, I put the last of the knobs on my storage piece from yesterday’s post. Love it!
(Don’t know if you can tell, but this is just a bunch of parts put together rather than an actual knob!)
As I was taking pictures of the goodies in the drawers, I remembered a cute idea I had seen for using a door knob to make a display stand for photos, so I rounded up some old wire I’d squirreled away months ago and got to work.
Again, Love it! I had the heart left over from another project I did months ago, and thought it looked cute at the top. Now I need to find some photos to add to it. I’m thinking a little tag with some romantic thought, along with a couple of pictures of Mr. Tattered and I would be the perfect addition.
Gratitude Day #7 –
Would it be terrible of me to be grateful for junk? ‘Cuz I really am. I love junk. I love rusty, dented, chipped, and scratched stuff that most people would throw away. I love keeping it around and having it close for when inspiration strikes, as it did today.
If I was living by myself, I would get rid of every piece of normal, new furniture I own, and replace it with old, mismatched things. My cupboards would not be fancy cherry wood. They would be custom made from salvaged wood, with chipped paint that had seen a hundred years of inclement weather. My dishes would be mismatched and so would my silverware and glasses and serving pieces.
I could go on and on.
Yep. I’m grateful for junk.
