Look What I Found...

These pretty little spoons caught my eye at a local flea market. Not sure what I'll do with them, I think they would be cute in a frame. 

 I found two more, an iced tea spoon and another little one.

 My plan was to find old jewelry that I could take apart and use in my own creations. Found this necklace. It was tangled and rusty, but had potential. See what a little metal polish will do!

 I also found a ring that I took apart-the flower shaped piece.

My blog banner says-A Creative Life, but I haven't been creating much lately. A creative block. A lot of flower photos, which I love-but no paintings, mixed-media or accessories. Actually, I have been working on some necklaces-but nothing is complete. Like I said in my profile, I'm trying to reinvent myself, into what I'm not sure. But this time I want to use my creativity. Boy, this reinvention is sure taking a long time! Has anyone else been through this? I'd love to hear from you! Well, back to creating. Have a great day!

My creative medium is growing flowers and photography so I am no help. I do see a lot of vintage jewelry out there that I know can be taken apart and made into amazing works of art and new jewelry. There is just something special about vintage spoons and yours are very pretty.

There are so many wonderfully creative and inspiring people on the Internet, but I also find the computer can be distracting and take away my creativity if I'm not careful. Perhaps you can find a class at a local community college or museum or arts program to fire up your muse? Your photography is beautiful and so is your watercolor on your sidebar!
