JUNK IN A JAR

I recently acquired a box of rusty tools, drill bits, springs, bolts, nails, chain and stuff I cannot identify. What can i say? I love stuff like this! It usually sits in the box for years, even though I sort through it once in a while while looking for a certain part for a current project. I also have a lot of jars that are missing their lids. Longing for the scent of spring, (ie: damp earth, moss, and greenery) I made up a few nature jars. If I were a wee, tiny, forest critter, I could picture myself happily living in one of these jars.This one has drill bits, a long spring that I shaped into an arch, rusty chain, moss, plants, and a cement pair of white snuggle bunnies.






This is an old, glass, peanut butter jar. It contains moss, plants, contorted hazelnut branches, square nails and a cement nest w/eggs. I will probably be taking these to the next Dupage Expo show, in St. Charles Il. to be held on Feb. 5th & 6th.
BY THE WAY!!!! IF YOU PRINT OFF THIS PAGE AND TAKE IT TO THIS SHOW, IT WILL EARN YOU 1/2 OFF THE ENTRY FEE FOR YOURSELF AND EVERYONE IN YOUR PARTY. IT IS TAPESTRIES OF NATURE'S AND ZURKO PROMOTIONS WAY OF SAYING "HAPPY NEW YEAR AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT".

I love this. Rusted, pointy, possibly tetanus inducing objects are my favorite! Go Bears! - Kathy
