Let Freedom Ring…with spoons

For the first time ever we hosted an Independence Day Cookout at our house this week.  I had a wonderful time preparing for the special event. I asked all of our guests to dress in red, white, and blue.  Believe it or not, they all did!  (Of course, I had to persuade my husband to wear his Army National Guard shirt that has an American Flag on it.)  I decorated the patio area with red, white, and blue streamers.  I tied red, white, and blue ribbon around some small mason jars and placed tea light candles in them.  I bought some red and blue citronella candles to keep the mosquitoes away.  I placed some red and white striped (Christmas) candles in larger glass containers surrounded by red and white mints in the middle of the tables.  I even painted the shed behind my house a “barn” red to match!!  I figured it wouldn’t be quite right without a signature silverware windchime with red, white, and blue.  Here are pictures of the windchime.  I will be posting it to my Etsy shop webpage.  And just for those of you that read this blog.  Here is a 20% discount code for my Twice As Loved Etsy Shop. { INDEPENDENCE2012 }

Remember I can custom make a windchime for you.  Contact me at agraymurray@gmail.com.

Jello and Ice Cream anyone???

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.

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.
