I purchased the rock tumbler yesterday at harbor freight...The butter fly was purchased from a flea market.It has lights on it but I stripped it down and put beads instead.Didn't like the look of a electric cord hanging from it...The tall iron picture holder and candle holder was salvaged from dumper.I figured I would put glass panes in the picture holder and use crash glass.The candle holder I considered to make another solar light holder...

Love them all. I have never done rock tumbling, but think I may add that to my list. I tried an old ice cream maker (suggested here) but my old one didn't run. I have kept that thing for many years, used to make ice cream for my boys and never had the heart to get rid of it. So I guess I will check out Harbor Freight. I really love the butterfly.

Looks like you will be busy with your new stuff! I like your swing too! Are you going to put different pic in each "pane" or 1 thing flowing from pane to pane? country scene-walking down road or stream & background etc. Guess would be lot harder doing 1 scene. Someone on mosaics did a river on her stair risers & it was beautiful! Keep us posted on your progress! Jan

Wow, you did score, doodys! That pic frame should make for interesting GJ! And that butterfly matches your swing comforter! Love that swing, too! Looks like a good place to cozy up & rest. I'm still looking for a rock tumbler, too...for mosaicing. TFS! Jeanne S.

Love the butterfly and I agree it looks better without the cord hanging from it. And what fun to have a rock tumbler! I can't wait to see what you do with the frames and the candleholder! Great finds!
