Sundays Child


I remember when I was little my mum had a book about what your birth day meant.

Mondays child is fair of face, Tuesdays child is full of grace, Wednesdays child is full of woe, Thursdays child has far to go, Fridays child is loving and giving,

Saturdays child works hard for his living,

And the child that is born on the Sabbath day Is bonny and blithe, and good and gay.
When I did this piece I thought of Sundays child and mums book,this is dedicated to my dear mum Jeannie.
I will make it into a pin .It is a glass ornament with white gauze hold a beautiful Paper Whimsy image in place,I then mounted it on to a Metal piece and of course wings (you know me)

Saturday's Metal Day



Well today was Metal Day for me, and Im so Happy with what I have turned out !!!! well the day isnt over yet.

The first piece had a old fuse with a tiny piece of wire mesh in it as well as the word time.A old light bulb which was placed over a metal number 50 as you look through it.

The second one has a old watch winder for a pocket watches with an old typewriter key glass on top you can vaguely see the letter A still on it with a hidden surpries underneath a man just peeking through.

The last one is an old key with a man peeking through Mica.The wire around the key was as I found it at a Trash and Treasure twisted already and copper to boot, Mark thinks it was old fuse wire for a car.

The metal they all sit on were a special gift from a special friend thanks you know who you are!!
