From several crap objects to one New item in my collection

In my last article I wrote that I was working on several projects. Well here are some results. Like everybody around the world already will know. I am always shopping!!!! I even have a cupboard with shopping bags :-). But I am always also buying objects that most people would "call" crap.
Two weeks ago I went out with my friends and what better to do than to go hunting for some crap the morning after a nice night. It's a good way to get some fresh air!!!

So I bought some frames. And one of them was a gold one with a bulb glass. There were some wonderful plastic flowers in them. My boyfriend called my crazy to buy something like that.
I don't have to say the flowers didn't live long. I think one hour after the frame came home the frame was empty.
The only question was "What to put in the frame"

One of my best friends "Tottie" bought such a frame also a time ago and did also some DIY on it.

After a week of sleepless nights. I saw the light!!! I have a big box full of old belgian money.

So after some trying and some glue here is the result, I hope you like it.

A lovely frame, and you've made it all the more interesting. You don't see domed glass in frames very often. Great catch!

Belle de Ville said... could put a sign below it that says "In case of emergency break glass and use money".

I love the convex frame and adding the coins was a fantastic idea. Love it!

A great idea! Coins are so tricky due to their weight and this frame is beautiful!!!

Beautiful job! And that's coming from one who has spent a lifetime buying crap! You have a great eye.
