My Rusty Muse!! and a special birthday!!!

 


This is my new cool little sign I made for my Rusty Junque Creations!! It is made from a pop top I found in the parking lot at the grocery store. And then I typed with my old vintage typewriter "FRAN'S JUNQUE" I have it sitting in a litte rusty spring I found. 
 I had been thinking for quite awhile that I wanted to make things from my rusty little finds. So I just went for it!!!
 
 
And this is what I came up with!! It is small and is on 2 inch wooden spool. The sheep is up cycled from an old coat and I used a rusty car part and rusty larger washer. I grubbied it up real good and dryed it in the sun!! This turned out so awesome and I LOVED it!! It SOLD in like 15 minutes after I put it on my facebook page!! Woo Hoo!! It lives in Virginia now!! I have another one almost ready to be finished!! And I am diggin it!! I am designing more too. I always see things in the junque I pick up. It feels real good to know that other people love what I make also. I guess I am officially an up cycled artist now!! LOL
 
 
On Friday we went down and celebrated Caylee's 3rd birthday!! She is so cute. We got her gardening stuff so she can be like Papa Sim and Grannie Frannie. We found a Little Princess greenhouse that was so cool. And got her some gloves and things to go with it.
 

 
I LOVE this picture of Caylee and her Daddy. Ryan and Christine got her a bike. Daddy is telling her how to ride it!! Precious moments!! That is her Mommy's legs in the pic!! I just captured this moment and I was so glad I did. She is  such a blessing!!
I am just working around the house and enjoying the sunshine and nice weather. To soon to go outside to work. But in a week or so I will feel more like it. I always have a lot of things I can work on inside!! LOL I want to make more things with my rusty goodies. I have been waiting along time to get my mojo going on it. And now it is here!! LOL I want to be able to go find more rusty goodies too. That part is a lot of fun!! Hope you are all doing great!!
Peace Out Love ya
XOXO Fran.
