FOTD Day Thirteen- A Mystery how this happens

I walk the same route to the library almost everytime- Straight down Hazel Street on the east side of the road. I have probably done it 75 times. So how did I miss these? I spotted the marble ad John boy spotted the penny- So weird. Weird I say.

FOTD Day Twelve- Heavy Metal Thunder

I know by now you must think me quite mad.

I cannot stop picking up metal things I see while walking. It's a sickness. I am a metal addict.

There is a method to my madness though. I want to do a collage with all these metal bits and bobs and you paint it all white or black then highlight with metallic buffing paste. It will be cool trust me. It might weigh 100lbs but it will be cool!

FOTD Day Eleven- Back to picking up Junk

Junk? I don't see no stinking junk... I see a cool metal circle that matches one I already have, a white sphere and my ever present  penny from heaven ( I left the Drs office and headed straight East and BAM! there was a penny just across the way on Gilbert Street). I also saved someone from a flat tire again- See that sharp pointy screw? Yeah, it's trash to some but it's superman/ironman/spiderman/superhero stuff to me.

FOTD Day Ten- IDEA Store round 2

Love this store. LOVE IT I SAY!!!

It feeds my creative soul, it adds to my stash, it makes me happy.

I found these cool stamps for the domino art and two bags of shark teeth to make necklaces for little boys.. Total paid= $5.32. Score!

FOTD Day 9- Hippology Ribbons

Yeah you heard me right, HIPPOLOGY RIBBONS lol! Found at the I.D.E.A. Store. I love them, I really do.


I am going to hang them here:


My friend, Sharon, did NOT get "it". "Why would you hang someone else's ribbon up?" Why indeed! Because they are COOL? Because I CAN!?!

I guess she doesn't know me very well yet.

FOTD Day Eight- Saving the World from Flat Tires

Picked up two sharp nails from the parking lots I went through to get to the laundrymat. Also two more washers, a Buddy Poppy the Vets sell for Memorial Day and some other metal odds and ends which will go into my Tyveck envelope with the other random metal bits and bobs until I get a plan on what to do with them.

FOTD Day Seven A Find from Last Year

Right after I moved here last Febuary I found this on the brick sidewalk in front of the house.

Shiny goodness! You can tell it had been there awhile from the dirt in the cracks.

FOTD Day Six Heartland Fair Finds

Cool Cool Stuff for domino embellishing. I walked to The heartland Fair in the old Sears building and asked Mary if she had any bags of broken jewelry. She did and these things were hidden treasures within.


I feel a cat series coming up!

FOTD Day Five a Bunch of Stuff

The ever present penny found on the sidewalk near the Carle building on Fairchild. Avon ribbon pin and a silk flower petal from alley near Vermilion, nail from street, cork for yesterday's bottle (I hope it fits) and a puzzle piece from Goodwill parking lot. Meaningless drivel but somehow compelling. I shall make my art and be happy.

FOTD Day Four- Hand Blown Bottle and a Fork?

Yes it's definitely a fork. I found it half buried in the sand. I was informed that this Patron Tequila bottle is hand blown. Way cool.

FOTD Day Two Hello Kitty

You know it's a good day when you find a wee tiny Hello Kitty earring along with a penny and a rusty washer- I swear the world is gonna fall apart due to the fact I find so many of the washers. They have to be falling off something that should be held together with something that uses a washer. Eek n stuff.

New Blog Series!!!! FOTD aka Find of the Day

Wow it came upon me like a stroke of lightening- FOTD. Why didn't I think of this before? I find stuff all the time.

Case in point- walking down Hazel Street to get coffee and pay library fines and BAM! found 3 one dollar bills quickly followed by a domino about 100 feet on down the line.

The rules:

I will be posting cool finds from my journeys and maybe from shopping.
I might not post every day but definitely more than once a week

Big list of rules :P

Sometimes I'd just rather not know, ya know?

Do you have bad news? Be a sweetie and keep it to yourself, my nerves can't take it.

I spent the last few days away from home and while I was waiting for a ride to work I watched the morning news. Bad weather, bad economy, stupid stuff over something Facebook did 2 years ago. After work I'm chatting with my youngest son and he's going to need a new place to live but of course has no money.

Now Twitter is trending #hobbylobby over the #SCOTUS decision and I really don't care. If we look too deeply into the dealings of any company we shop at we will find things we don't want to see. I am tired and need a bath and I need to buy some jewelry findings and I am gonna do it at Hobby Lobby even if there's a picket line three screaming feminists deep.

Death by Glitter

Having too much fun here in my little world. I don't know what made me do it but I pulled out the glitter for a shot of fairy dust chaos.







I got some smaller stones to work on next. I even got me a tiny vise grip to hold the dominoes while drilling. You can stop worrying so much about accidents now.

Farmers Market here in town has been great for market research!
