Dreaming of pocket watches and fairies ~

I have been wanting some pocket watch cases FOREVER!!!
I found this precious set of three on ebay and had to buy them.....and they still have their glass fronts too!!! I want to make a few mini assemblages in them ~ but one seems destined to stay with me, can you guess which one??

Just look at the beautiful bird engraving on the back ~ eeeeek! I'm in love ~

I feel like I've been away from my creative self for some time now, caring for little Noah and also not feeling well but I'm getting so excited about creating again ~ and I actually finished a special order! I don't usually take orders as I'm one of those artists that love creating what I'm in the mood to create, but Vicki is a former customer and wanted her sisters turned into fairies!! I'm so pleased with how they turned out.

I've created an instructional tutorial for this project
that's for sale on my Lessons from The Nest blog ~
who could you turn into a fairy??

Making things makes me smile :)

Happy Thursday dear friends ~
xxoo, Dawn

Yes, Good Morning. My thoughts are especially with Noah. I broke my leg once and it seemed the hardest part was getting back up on your feet. I'm am happy for you!!!! Finding those watch cases and one with a bird engraved on the back. Did you jump for joy when you discoved that? Can't wait to see what you do with them. I've got a jar just waiting for a fairy. Blessings, Gerri

Hmmm, I think I'm getting a image of a cute little fairy even as I type... Cute idea!

Jealous!!!! What an awesome find. I know you will create lovely things with them! Give Sweet Noah a hug around his neck from me. My Mom broke her leg several years ago and the recovery can be tough. I am glad to hear you are feeling creative again. It helps keep us sane, right? LOL!! Have a wonderful week Sweet Friend. Love, Jamie
