October’s Challenge was to use Odds and Ends From the Hardware Store…  Well, I shopped but couldn’t find any ends I wished to craft with; but was pretty sure I had quite a few odds to choose from in the garage.
Yup – here’s an odd:odd
“What is it?” my oldest asked.DSCN5576
It’s a little too chunky for a bracelet…DSCN5579
it does say FOOD WASTE DISPOSERsink
(He’s studying to be an engineer, so it gave me a giggle that he didn’t know what a flange is… Guess that means he couldn’t make a living as a plumber, huh?)DSCN5582
Another of the “odds” I found in the garage was this chunk of wood leftover from a headboard upcycle project I cut off months ago. (My hoarding needs an intervention… but that’s another topic…)DSCN5585
The last of the “odds” came from my sewing/craft/junk room. These glass marbles/stones have been used in the aquarium, cement stepping stones, wind chimes, candles – you name it, I tried it there.
So, I painted the little wood piece white and then glued a few stones here & there – TA - DA! My finished project:DSCN5618
Well, when looking at the back side of the flangeDSCN5598

I was needing something to complete the tableaux.
