T2T project...

I absolutely love Trash 2 Treasure projects... here are two.

First up: I got this coffee mug for 20cents... put some Plaster of Paris in it, coiled some wire to hold photos, and added some moss (from the tree in my backyard). I did boil the moss in water on the stove for about 5 minutes to kill any bugs that may be in it. I let it air dry for an hour and then just stuffed it into the mug. For my Mom, as her kitchen is done in Strawberries.


And finally made some Record Bowls. 33rpm records, heated and moulded into a bowl shape. NOT for food items but great for keys and such... The one with the RCA label is going to my brother who is a huge music buff and enjoys vinyl.
