One of the main reasons I love blogging so much is because of the inspiration it provides me.
I came across these images last night from this blog:

Aren't they beautiful?
They inspired me to go back to this project. Remember it now? I went back and filled some of the backgrounds in with some cool papers. I covered an empty thread spool with paper too.
I went through my mixed-media stash and found the broken ceramic wing, the old, dirty bottle, the teeny tiny "G", and a key.

I'm not done, but that just leaves me room for more fun! I want to make a couple of things out of polymer clay: a cupcake, a cup of coffee, a mushroom.

I love being inspired. Thanks Julie!
Oh, and I have much much more to show you. Hopefully tomorrow!

I love the one you made and the little corner it sits in. Nice way to display little bits of treasures you've found along the way.

I love these little things, especially the heart with wings and the painted heart with wings under it.

So sweet!

Oh this is so why I am here at your many out here inspire me! I have a little trinket holder also but I love the painted look...looks like the spray paint is something I will have to pull out and update mine.

I actually bought some clay little birds that were so cute to put in a shadow box.

Hello there, I just found your blog via a link on Sara's Art House : ) What a lovely post, so many great ideas! I have 2 empty printer's trays just waiting for some attention. I love the idea of painting one of them white. The vignette of the corner in your home is just wonderful. Looking forward to browsing around your blog.
