Vintage Cheese Grater Wind Chimes

This is the before and after picture of what you can do with an old vintage cheese grater, silverware, beads (from old necklaces), buttons, bells and some wire (the copper wire was recycled from an old motor)

Thrifty Solar Lamp

This summer as I was going to some rummage sales and thrifty shopping I came across these old lamps and decided to make them into a solar lamp for on my deck.  Here are some pictures of the process.

Funky Family Pendant

I made these pendants for each member of my family. they are made from some copies of old family photos and are under glass. The wedding picture of my Mom and Dad on one side and then the picture of all us kids on the other. I soldered the edges and added a bead dangle.
