Buttons, Beads and Fossils

I inherited a large tin of old buttons and beads. This has been my inspiration this week, digging through it and seeing what I could do with them.

I am an "out of sight, out of mind" sort of person- so I keep a lot of my assemblage items on a wall of cubicles from Target that my patient husband put together for me.

This nautilus fossil was one of the items that I have kept even through our massive cleaning out phase of moving across the country. It was given to me by my daughters kindergarten teacher 15 years ago. It had a crack in it and had been glued back together so not sure if it is worth anything as an artifact but I think it makes a perfect piece of art. I have glued it to a metal plate stand so it can stand up on it's own.

I had picked up this wall hook from JoAnne's not too long ago 'cause I thought it would be good for something. Added buttons and gold acrylic ink. Now I like it, hope you do too.

Glad you liked it Angela...I had a good day at my first Sat. market today and sold 6 items plus 3 greeting cards but these did not sell, so they are still available....
