Transformations

A little late night work on my weekend thrifts (see the originals here) has resulted in...
Clip boards became altered message centers. I put sheet music on the back of the boards which reminded me how much decoupage and I do not get along! I've placed one clip board in the laundry room for those pesky ortho reminder cards. Ah, the sound of my son clacking his retainer...
Some foam and flowers for the silver plate bud vase. And since I had the clippers out I went ahead and did the teapot and the larger silver piece. Note - I do not like the hydrangea stems. They did not go in easily and I am currently nursing the holes in my index finger!

Those clipboards are really cute, Carrie. Like the addition of the lace on the clip for a little femininity. You hate decoupaging- I hate glue gunning.... OUCH!
