Not long ago, I ventured into a new thrift shop in a nearby town and found stacks of vintage metal jello molds. they were only 50 cents a stack of 6, so I bought several not really knowing what the heck I would do with them. A little googling came up with some great ideas from candles to Christmas ornaments to the fun idea of pincushions. And since I am a textile artist, I have lots of fabric scraps and embellishments. So with spray paint in hand, I set off to try my hand a few. It was one of the many projects I have that I just go with what turns out. After looking at these, the pastel ones look like candy and ice cream. The retro ones remind me of my grandma's kitchen.
This bunch I am going to include in the Shabby Lane Shops Boutique bags that will be sold at the Christmas Gift show in Nashville this fall. I will most likely have a few on my website for holiday stocking stuffers too.
