Quietus.
Don't say it, I know, it's been just forever since I blogged! You all are gonna get so sick of me eventually...

AND THAT WASN"T FISHING FOR COMPS! NO COMPS! See how cool I am shortening words like that? It's totes the trend...
OK, sorry.

So yeah, I just tossed a few earrings together without even breaking a sweat.  (That's just the kind of sentence that I usually follow by some retarderie, isn't it? Watch me take the high road.)

Understanding. Recycled Rustic Tea Tin Cuff Bracelet with Gold Foil.Understanding.
Now, what I'm really exciting about telling y'all about today.... Gold Fooooiiiiilllll!

Eh?

So I'm totally showing a million views of it because as usual, round things like bracelets are super hard to chose a good perspective on...

Pinchbeck. Recycled Tin Gold Bling Paper Decoupage Adjustable Ring.
Pinchbeck.
Nope, this one's a ring! Actually, originally, it was a hoop earring.

It was white with little flowers you can still see bits of. Also some paperie...

A set of 2.

Actually, these had flowers too but you can't really see them.

And here's a set of three. Even though it is gold, it has the barest hint of this weird antiquing glaze that makes it matte.

So let me show you some more things I'm doing with it. Remember all the fishing spoons?


Here's the artsy version, and below the regular. I actually was trying to blur out the crud on the floor, not be artsy.


That's the piece of Roman glass Numinositybeads sent me.
Sigh... I lurv it.
And since you all love my floor junk so much, here's some more:

Afghaaaaaaanistan! Oh, except for the mini colander. That's just regular old U.S. Sorry to disappoint. With my Americanness. 


Some of the amazing beads happyfallout.  Though in fact she  sent so many, I can't even...


A buncha goodies I got in the mail. Isn't getting goodies in the mail the best? Around here I get so much, it's like Christmas everyday. Except that I get what I actually want.


So I strung up a bunch of the pale ones happy sent, to avoid the ol' oversupplypanic. You know how most people say they hoard beads? And they don't want to use their best supplies? I'm the opposite. I guess I'm a rebel like that.
Oh! So I recently got a bunch of minis, but they were metalized plastic. I oxidized most of that off and painted and sealed the pots and pans. I was clueless about what to do from there but the next thing I know I seem to be assembling a dirty-dishes-in-the-kitchen-sink type of thing. Anyone know how to make permanent soap bubbles? 

Should I even go for the soap? I feel like it makes no sense otherwise. Does it make any sense?
OK. I'm nappy now. Woke up at 9!!!! It's the juice, I tell ya.

OH MY GAWD, how do you do it? So many awesome earrings I love 'em! Those little creatures are so adorable. Rings and a floor shot of your goodies. As the Beatles say...Baby I'm amazed! I've got a bunch of gold foil, I'm gonna give it a whirl. You really do need to make that book, I so want to buy it!! NOW!

Get sick of you?! Never. I feel like I'm on vacation when I come to your blog-looking at all the fabulous creations made with things I'v never seen before. And the names you choose--well I don't even know what most of them mean.

Would it be bad if I stalked your mail box? Of course I don't know where you live so I suppose you are safe from fanatics like me.

Kathy Barrick said...

Can I just send you all the weird crap I have all over this house and watch you go to town with it? You take stuff I wouldn't even think about using and turn it into amazing stuff. You blow me away!

Corvid Delights said...

the mini dirty dishes in the sink! Something about them makes my heart feel all squeezy. Aah so cool. I am lovin the gold foil it reminds me of Klimt.

Janet said...

The gold and the text on the tin is amaaaaazing! So many ordinary yet interesting things destined to become fanciful.
Yes, Kathy. The two of you?! What a great collaboration that would be!

For the little bubbles? The clear, irridescent round plastic beads in a couple of different sizes look just like bubbles. I used them in a little metal bathtub with a tiny porcelain half doll buried in them that looked great! Glue or resin them in.

And those little light bulbs..... Please come up with something fantastic to do with them, cuz I've got some of those laying around and not a clue what to do with them. :)
Other than maybe little people bodies? Really tiny amphoras, mini terrarium necklaces? Argh, save me from myself! Hahaha

stregata said...

I wouldn't bother about the suds - first you grunge it up and then you throw it in the suds? Besides, people will just freak about the water dripping out of the necklace...
Darn - I wanted to do something with gold foil the other day - and I can't find where I stashed it...

richelle said...

How about drawing the soap bubbles on real rustic folk art stylized on the bottom and sides of the inner tub, maybe adding a few waves here and there to further signifying water. The metallic silver Sharpie would be perfect, maybe outlined with a fine point black one.

Beatnheart said...

Oh crap... Now I'm gonna be digging in filthy fishing tackle boxes at g. Sales

alek said...

gold foil is great, the girl who gave me the fishing stuff also gave me some of the real deal her grandfather had given her, been playing with that on bone - do you want some old greek text by the way?

ensourdine said...

Oh boy! I was just going to comment on that the gold foiled grungies remind me of Klimt with the macabre of Schielle then I saw that Corvid just made the same comparison. ;) They are brilliant, really! They're so perfect with winter outfits or something crazy like V. Westwood - sorry to have pulled out a "brand"; know you don't give those sorts a damn.

The dirty dishes!!! Ah it opens up too much imagination! I want that on my belt!...

artistic rejuvenations said...

te-he-he-he-he. you've done it again. i have this piece of flimsy rubber on my bench and i have had no idea what to do with it but it has two holes in it and, so, it has to be something. right? so you inspired me to collage it. duh i say to me.

artistic rejuvenations said...

and thank you to you. silly me for forgetting. :)

Petra Carpreau said...

Oh my god - a couple of days, and you pull this lot out of the bag! yeah, yeah, i know - it's the squashed food.
Holy moley, what an amazing haul Happy left you with. Those face beads are just too wonderful. Damn, I'm going to miss seeing her beads.
Fishing lures for crap's sake!! You manage to bring out the beauty of pretty much everything with those magic fingers, doncha!
Would blowing through resin with a straw give you lasting bubbles? I adore that miniature scene of drudgery!
Yes, mega Klimt-iness going on with that foil!Yummer, that rosy looking ring!!
Right then - let's have a looky at this forum .....

what a fab sense of humour - I love it - feel like I know you already - come take a look at my website - no way as quirky as yours, but the stuff I have is a bit different from the norm
So pleased I stumbled on your blog, with its 'imaginary' followers - you have a real one here
