I know it was not the official start of Spring, but here on Wednesday at exactly 2:10 PM, Spring arrived.
The weather changed from a chilly, misty day to a warm, sunny one.
I made Chucks drive fast to get back home so I could celebrate.
What better way to celebrate than to rummage through Horror Monster, my beloved craft stash.
He has an outdoor living section, you know.
First the obvious choice - springs!
They have been rusting up a storm and ready to find new homes.
I washed the crud off them, but left the rusty goodness.
They quickly dried in the ...
I dug these out of a disintegrating cardboard box under a table.
They had become rusty after a year of me waiting.
What are they?
Chair foundations for stabilizing poured concrete.
I just call them pretty, little rusty things.
I kept some for myself to use in my container gardens.
Packaged ten to a pack for the booth.
They reminded me of the Eiffel Tower structure so I ran in the house and quickly made these tags.
Used some torn cotton ribbons to tie up the bundles of rusty joy.
I used the turquoise cotton ribbons on the springs.
If you have ever had to untangle bed springs, you know why.
The ribbons will keep them from consorting with one another.
They love to consort.
And now I will leave you so I can get back to work.
In the sun.
Without a sweatshirt.
Nary a shiver in my body.
Except for the one for all the rusty goodness yet to be uncovered.
Watch out, Horror Monster!
Here I come.
