trash to treasure: i heart upcycling!!!

Hey y'all!!!

You know the expression..."one man's trash is another man's treasure"...

...or in this case, one crafter's trash ;)

Here are some discarded items I've acquired with the intent of making them a treasure for someone else to enjoy!

a vintage metal plate from a sewing machine
(this one I'm keeping for me, sorry y'all!)

a random assortment of old keys from my daddy's workbench
some of which have been transformed into treasures you can see here and here!

what will these become?
a tire from a model car; a washer; a wing nut

a decorative wooden topper broken from an old piece of furniture
(another find from daddy's workbench!)

an old butter knife, sans handle
already refashioned, simply!

one of my favorite pieces for sale in my shop...
a little edgy and very unique!
