Can I just say thank you Jamie! I found quite a few little treasures that I will post later. But my favorite was a snowflake crystal paperweight. I immediately came home and started rummaging through my scrapbook paper, but didn't find what I wanted. So I went online...story of my life...and headed over to tatteredvintage at etsy. She has the most amazing digital downloads of gorgeous, vintage wallpaper patterns she's collected for years. I found
I printed out my favorite, used a circle cutter to cut the perfect size circle, then mod podged it onto the base of the paperweight. I'm in love! The exciting part is, the consignment shop has 8 more paperweights and she will give me a deal if I buy all of them. I begrudgingly...because I love it...put this one up for sale in my etsy store.
I love it sitting on my copy of Shabby Chic by Rachel Ashwell!
Now I need your opinion. Should I go back and buy all the others? I priced it at $15. If you weren't inclined to make one yourself (as most of us diy'ers are), would you pay that for it? I googled crystal paperweights, and they run from about $25 on up, for nice ones. Thanks for your input. I'm itching to make more :)
