Junk 2 Jewels Boutique

I had to get on here and get a post out to you all. In between my classes, early school release, making salad rolls and on to basketball photos later.....I have decided to hide from life for a moment to grab a cup of inspiration.
I get almost giddy when I can make something beautiful from something someone discarded........Could I have said SOME any more in that sentence?

Junk 2 Jewels is the site I decided to feature today. So much inspiration before you even get off the first page. But you must snoop deeper. So much to see.
Tracy is oozing the glam. She has taken our discarded bottles, found vintage anything and created a whole new world. Very artsy stuff. She and her soldering thingy are a force to be reckoned with. Anything from jewelery or charms.........or bottles...........and now adding photography to her resume. She has it all. I could learn a bit from her I'm sure.


Love this charm......It's one of those things you can stare at for a very long time.

Look at this! I love me a banner.......but this one is in glass and soldered. She has sold them in the past in her Etsy shop.........but sadly she has none right now. She bought a bunch of vintage buttons and decided to make this necklace one day. Style! She's got style. Someone without style wouldn't have placed the perfect paper underneath. All of her photos are very well done, very pleasing to the eye. Relaxing.This she can't take credit for. It's from her girlfriends home. But she has sense enough to take the photo..........you know what they say? Birds of a feather, flock together. This she can take credit for. This is in her home. Another naked frame..........I LOVE NAKED FRAMES! And it's all chippy.........I'm getting goosebumps. And when you're done swooning over the naked frame.........what about that other large frame? Cool isn't it?Just before you think you want to hate her...........you can't. She's nice. She makes pumpkin face mask for gifts. I have always been interested in home remedies.........never heard of using pumpkin. Gonna have to look that up and remember it for next October.

Before I forget.......she also has a few tutorials. WE LOVE TUTORIALS!

Ok, so after you leave ME a comment, head over to Tracy's site and tell her how much we love her over here.

I'm off to make my salad rolls. Have you ever made those? So annoying, but so good........so I suffer to make my family happy.

I love her blog! Love the bottles! I found a whole tray of old bottles like that at a local thrift store for $20 for all. I came home without them because I felt I didn't need any more junk. Then I saw Junk 2 Jewels Bottle Creations and kicked myself...maybe they're still there...I'll check... And you're right, Tracy is ozing with talent as well as glam!

I have found so many wonderful sites on your blog. I am happy to say this gal I knew about and I think she's an amazingly creative person.

I find you site so valuable I wish I could put your blinkie on my sidebar but I don't know how to do it. Do you have a tutorial that works for Wordpress?

:-) Rosie

Fantastic ideas! I've collected old bottles for years, so many so that I don't know where to put them all. I do now! Nothing like a little creativity to get the idea juices going. LOVE your blog!
