Still bending wire

I feel like Edward Scissorhands...but with wire cutters instead!

Above is a tall photo/sign holder display stand (I also made a wire bird cage that can hang from it)

I try to create things with at least some sort of functionality

This was a fun use of little metal flowers that I had salvaged from a lamp, but making the wire cloche frame took a really long time.

I might try mounting these on wood molding for added interest and stability, but they are so easy to just hang on hooks or walls like this.
Bees are fun for spring....but functional? maybe not so much.

 I greatly appreciate the kind encouragers and amazing purchasers of my sassy products on Etsy and at shows!

Blog Inspirations: Tres Julie: "Praise You In This Storm"

This beautiful blog has become one of my favorite go-to places for all sorts of inspiration....and I almost missed this post showcasing my all-time favorite song, "Praise You In This Storm" by Casting Crowns.  She posts beautiful coastal photography with lyrics interspersed for a stunning journey. Awesome Julie!
