okay… is a little jewelry project. took an discarded bell and glued it to some tarnished silver. it made a little handle and a ring holder. i put it on top of a glass dish that sits on another tarnished plate. makes another storage for more jewelry……..just made it all out of junk from goodwill.

    GREAT idea for the jewelry “box”. Man, you think of everything! I can’t wait to get to TX and let you come up with ideas for all the junk I have collected.
    Bought a box of buttons at the Idar thrift shop lats week 10 Euro ($15) for a box that is 12 X 12 X 5 and FULL! I am having so much fun sifting thru them this weekend and dreaming of all I will do with them.
