Recycle, Reinvent in Glass

I just cannot make myself give over my used glass items to the recycle bin to be smashed to bits when there is a bit of beauty left to create with.  This frosted glass was once a part of a bath set from a Christmas long ago.  Ordinary household bleach will remove the oils that dull the glass frost and bring it back to it's full beauty, then I added a bit of clear resin dripping down it's sides so you can peek inside the jar to see the gemstones placed there.  This one has a beautiful glass Angel on the top to hold the magic inside and is waiting for someone to rescue it from my storage closet.

Recycle, reinvent, repeat!

I just love all those cute Avon aftershave bottles, this one with added embellishments has a cute little hand sculpted Vintage gentleman driver at it's top opening.  Reinvented using a few recycled buttons and jewelry pieces makes this ooak Desk jewelry the perfect gift!

Summertime Fun

July 24 through August 23 is the birthday's belonging to the lion like Leo.  Although Leo has the detailed abilities to make a successful splash in business, Leo's self centeredness could cause this success to tumble into chaos.  This sunny piece can be found at a new artist shop called AbetArt4U at Etsy.

Silly Little Girl

This silly little girl could not decide what she wanted to be, so we went a little vintage elegance and spunky sci-fi.  She also stands on a base that is a wind up musical turn stand and she goes slowly around and around to a tune that I know is familiar but can't name.

The Ea

The Ea, a Babylonian Goat-fish a symbol of regenerative powers of the world's living creatures.  I've never met one but I think it's going on my Bucket list.  But with no mystical fish I'll have to be content knowing that if not my body, my mind is enjoying the regenerative, energizing joy of creativity.  The mind can take you back into a past you were never born in and far, far into a future only you could envision.  That makes you Queen (or King) over all that surrounds you... in your own workspace at least, enjoy that!

This little art piece is a delicate looking little treasury wich contrary to it's presence is actually a very strong piece which has been created for attracting a love that knows no boundaries.  To see more views you can visit my little mystic2awesome Etsy shop.

Being Green

Being green, recycling and repurposing "once loved" items such as the puppy toy head and an old doll body which had lost it's head seemed like the right thing to do. She has turned into such a diva, demanding a designer dress and hair extensions this little one needs a rich owner because I can't afford to keep her! See more views and descriptions at my Etsy shop today or tomorrow... or next week.

Gemstones in Blue and Teal

I've held on to this beautiful Labradorite stone for a few years now with other like stones, and must make room for an evergrowing Etsy inventory, so this one is up for sale in my Etsy shop mystic2awesome. I love this gemstone and there is a story behind it about an Eskimo who crushed the original stone with his spear and some of the beautiful colors are now seen in the Alaska sky at night. For more views and descriptions please visit me at my shop, or just google mystic2awesome.
