The Thing About Fans Is....

 Hello there again!!
I have an odd one to share today. Well, for me that might be the norm, but I hope this one is actually useful for you or at least gets some ideas rolling for Christmas gifts or potential crafty sales.  
I found these fan blades at a local thrift shop last year for $2 bucks and they sat and sat as I pondered what the heck to do with them. 

So far the cost has been $15 total and I still have 2 blades to go.
I'd love your constructive opinions about these and any ideas to give me for the last 2 I've still got to complete.

Thanks SOOOO much for your visit and I hope you've enjoyed your time here.
Hugs n' Happy Crafting to you!

Autumn's Chair.....

 Hello and a very warm welcome to you!
It's been quite awhile since I've crafted anything as we're in the midst of getting ready to move, but when I saw this challenge at Moxie Fab World...WOW....I think the trigger picture speaks for itself.

What isn't there to love about this vintage hair clip adorned with the most breathtaking porcelain flowers in Autumn colors?  The back drop of the white bowl truly shows off the intricate details.

 I was so inspired by it all as the shape of the combs made me think of a wooden lawn chair.  This shabby chic piece of jewelry made me think of my great-grandmother and therefore I created a project that represented where she might have enjoyed spending her time, her love of flowers and most importantly, her love of family.
If you're inspired by this, there's still time to play until Sunday!
Chair and flowers were all cut on the Silhouette Cameo
It was so nice to actually craft something, but I had the most fun sharing it with you.
Hope this finds you all doing well and looking forward to the weekend!
Hugs n' Happy Crafting....
