Jersey flowers.

I got this striped shirt for 98 cents off of a clearance rack. I bought it with best intentions of cutting it up and using it for the fabric. I happened to have jersey in nearly the exact same blue and green colors. Instead of discarding the shirt, I used long strips of the blue and green fabric to create these flowers and add a little interest. I'd pay at least $1.50 for this shirt post-embellishment. hah.



I read one of my Grandma's poems at her funeral earlier this year. It ended with the line, "I'm on my way home." She's home now.

This is a necklace I made with a picture of her taken almost exactly 80 years ago (8 days off). I played with the photo a little bit and added the inscription "Home" along with little lock and key charms. It took all of five minutes, but it makes me smile.
