What have I done?


Okay, I ran across this lazy-susan type spice rack thingy at the thrift shop several months ago. It came with only two bottles and it was a dingy brown- colored spinning rack. I guess I really should have taken before and after pictures!! Why did I buy this? I picked it up strictly for the use of the jars. Originally, they were going to be "faireum" jars, but ended up being just too small for me to use in the class. Hmmmm, whatever did I do today??? Here are 3 silly photos of the semi-finished product. For the last few weeks, I've been thinking of a way to re-use this... I'm not really sure what to make of this yet... I stamped a phrase around the top of the "wheel" that says~ "Why, yes!!! i DO Collect Fairies!!! Don't YOU????" Inside of the jars - my collection of itty-bitty fairies (so far). I made one of the jars the keeper of a fairy flamingo, another has a tiny clown fairy with wings and it's sporting a crown (of course). The other~~ a fairy that's trying to escape out of it's hole in the top of the jar! (this jar was an extra one that I found to fit the rack~ minus a lid.) Eeek! I left the lid off!! How ever will I catch her again? I'm hoping to add to my collection as I find more bottles of similar sizes. Oh, and did I mention that my spice rack was a steal for $.50?? Be back soon! :)

Your flag and my flag, And how it flies today In your land and my land And half a world away! Rose-red and blood-red The stripes forever gleam; Snow-white and soul-white - The good forefathers' dream; Sky-blue and true-blue, with stars to gleam aright - The gloried guidon of the day, a shelter through the night. ~Wilbur D.
