A gallon of buttons and new boots (er BOOT!)

Was at Stars the other day ‘fluffing’ up my space, and adding a few things:


Like this fabulous glass conservatory!  Two of the top sections are open (no glass) so you can use it as a candle lantern also.  I love creating various vignettes in things like this!


For now I’ve filled it with beachy decor stuff.

P1130868It fits perfectly atop this wood lamp table.   For ‘home use’ I envision as a table centerpiece or on a coffee table.

P1130870Took in a few medium sea glass wreaths.

P1130873And a big (grapefruit size!) sea glass ball; stand included.

P1130943After I finished working on my booth, I decided to hobble about for a quick look.  Found another GALLON jar of buttons!  (Just bought one a few months ago!)  Not that I really NEEDED more buttons at this time, but it was such a great price I couldn’t resist.  This batch has more colored buttons that the last; which was mostly white.

P1130944Some packets of keys for $4.00 each.  I ALWAYS need keys!

P1130947And some packages of old cancelled checks for altered art.  Fun stuff for me to ‘play with’ while I still need to be ‘off my feet’ as much as possible.

Had the bone scan done on my foot and I DO have a stress fracture. Oh JOY!!  Picked up my  ‘ankle walker’ boot at the pharmacy today.

P1130951It should be more appropriately named a HOBBLER!  I can barely hobble about in this thing in a very ‘peg leg’ manner.

P1130950And because this ‘thing’ has so much of a high heel on it, the ONLY shoe I can wear on my other foot (that has a similar height of heel) is these clunky boots!  (and we’re having a HEAT WAVE!  93 degrees yesterday!  A little cooler and overcast today)

P1130949And of course ‘walking off balance’ really takes its tole on your back.  I can already ‘feel it’ in my lower back.  sigh.  Even getting up out of a chair is harder, because I can’t bend my ankle at all to get leverage.  And I have to take the steps ‘one at a time’ ( as in both feet on a single step at a time like toddlers do when they are just starting to walk!)

Oh and the BEST part!  I can’t wear it for driving.  So when I am running errands I will have to stop and change in and out of it constantly AND carry an additional pair of shoes to wear because the boots like I have on my left foot, HURT my right foot.  Oh good grief!!!!   It sucks to me be right now!!!

  1. SUPER cute look you’ve got going there! Maybe you can start a fashion trend! 🙂 Hang in there & craft on!!!

  2. bless your heart I feel for you. Isn’t being sick a drag. The boot is cute. As I hobble around i will be thinking of you and of course the doctor who made the front of my knee hurt today when I went in for the back of my knee.

  3. Do you ever share how you make items? I LOVE the sea glass wreaths.

    • Have you READ my blog?!?!? I share how I do almost EVERYTHING. Maybe not in step by step detailed instructions on things that I think are simple enough that most can figure out the steps on their own. ( I honestly do not have the time to take step by step photos and write detailed tutorials on every project) I am always happy to answer questions about my projects. ON the sea glass wreaths, I do believe that I DID explain how I made them: glued two cardboard rings together, covered that with paper to match the color of the wreath, then glued on the glass layer by layer; using tacky glue for everything. I even shared my ‘spped drying’ trick in the post.
