Sorry I have been out of commission for a while.  I am a teacher as well, and have been focusing on the start of school.  I am back at it now.  I didn’t have a Crafty Military Wife lined up for today, but I will advertise for these lovely ladies from a group I am a part of. Please check out these amazing shops via Facebook or Etsy.

Jello and Ice Cream anyone???

Standard
Jello and Ice Cream anyone???

My new windchime leaves me wishing for some Red and Orange Jello and a scoop of Ice Cream.  Wonder why?  Take a look for yourself.

Interested in purchasing this windchime?  Go to: https://www.etsy.com/listing/102417444/upcycled-measuring-spoon-windchime

This windchime was made with love by using upcycled antique measuring spoons and a Hagan ice cream scoop. The top of the windchime is a copper jello mold.

The spoons are securely attached to the Jello mold by fishing line. The fishing line is adorned with red beads and orange/white swirl beads.

This would make a great gift for any occasion.

Upcycled Silverware Windchime Teal Blue Red Beads

Upcycled Silverware Windchime Teal Blue Red Beads

Making this upcycled gravy boat windchime at White Lake, NC made me think about all the “boat” rides I have gone on there or somewhere else.  Many days in my youth were spent on a boat in either Jordan Lake, NC or Badin Lake, NC.  Days were spent fishing, tubing, tanning, and relaxing.

Yes a gravy boat is quite different than a fishing or sports boat. But still the same the memories come back.

This windchime can be found and purchased at https://www.etsy.com/listing/102362816/silverware-windchime-upcycled-gravy-boat

This windchime was made with love by using upcycled silverware and gravy boat.
There are two forks and two knives attached by fishing line. The line is adorned with red and teal blue beads. The tines of the forks have been bent for additional attraction.

The flower molds on the handles of the knives make this a great piece of art to hang in a garden. This windchime could be hung up inside or outside.

This would make a great gift for any occasion.

Silverware Windchime {Silver Platter Green Beads}

Standard
Silverware Windchime {Silver Platter Green Beads}

I enjoyed making this Silverware Windchime  {Silver Platter Green Beads} at White Lake, NC on vacation this week at our family’s house.  I was inspired to use the green beads because of the greenish tent glimmering in the lake water.  This windchime was so soothing to listen to as we swam nearby or sat on the pier at the Murray Lake House.  I imagine a buyer placing this on a pier by the water. (Though it could be placed elsewhere as well.)   Enjoy the slideshow. If you are interested in purchasing this windchime please visit Twice As Loved on Etsy.

Musical themed wind chimes.

Musical themed wind chimes.

I love to be able to create new things out of old things.  I recently had an order for a musical themed wind chime.  Well, for two, actually.  Here are the pictures of them.  They were a huge success and the customer, one of my fellow teachers, loved them.
