Now that I have my soldering iron and a few tools, I wanted to try something more artsy fartsy … lol I want it to be something weathered and rusty … something that is totally outside my comfort zone. But where do you find the junk! I tried the local building salvage and everything I found there was too big. The antique stores want to much so I turned to the thrift stores. The problem with them is that anything junky they throw out because they don’t think it will sell. So as I was digging through the good stuff and I came across this little candle holder …. and it hit me… I could take it apart and rust those leaves. Then I found one of those cheep vanity mirrors with the lacy metal edge. Well I am gonna take that apart and rust it too. I guess this is a good first step … to start looking at things just a little different.
