This little jar has been taking some of my time here lately. I found this jar at a flea market and knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. I made the roses and leaves out of clay. Primmed and painted the lid and then painted the roses and leaves. Then I made the beaded front. It also has one pink crystal in the center. I think this would be so lovely on a dressing table or dresser. When the lid is closed it will be air tight. The jar was made in France. I will be listing it on Tattered Elegance & Close Creations tomorrow.
Now for some lace~
Here is some beautiful bridal lace that I found at a garage sale. It will be great to use with your crafting. I will try to list this on My Ebay tomorrow. Two of them are 2yards and two are 3yards. I think they will dye well too.
Hope you enjoyed my things. I have to try to get some pottery painted tomorrow. I am repairing some Weller, Roseville, and Hull right now. And I need to get it finished.
Thank you for stopping by to meet me and hear about My Tattered Elegance.
My name is Pat, I'm a self taught artist, junker and creative person. I paint on nearly any surface, make ribbon roses one petal at a time, do ribbon embroidery, form roses from the oven baked clay. I also do some sewing for my home.
My favorite pasttime is not going shopping at the mall, it is going shopping at a good yard sale, or fantastic estate sale or a big flea market. The thrill of finding that special something is better than chocolate (and I love chocolate). I'm even one of those ladies that stop and load my car with the cast offs on the side of the curb. Some of the curb trash becomes my best finds.
I'm at home here in Fort Worth, Texas and love it. I have a married daughter, Kim. She doesn't have any children only three cats. I also have a married son, Kent. He has two sons, Bryce and camron. Also one daughter, Payton. She is the one that comes and paints with me. And she loves to use my beads to make jewelry. Grand-daughters are so much fun.
